The Special Collections materials at the University of Iowa are okay, thanks to some intrepid staff and volunteers. There's a much bigger look of the flood's effect on the campus, too.|
The OED has added a few new words. Apparently "subprime" was not an official word until recently!
The Huffington Post is expanding into local markets, and they want to hire local reporters! There's something you don't hear too often these days in the journalism world. Meanwhile, some enterprising British teens have discovered a great use for Web 2.0: finding local swimming pools and organizing spontaneous parties there. (The owners of the pools are not too thrilled.)
News from the archives world: the BBC is planning to put all its shows online. I thought I'd mentioned this before and checked - I did, over a year ago. Let's hope they keep moving forward!
And lastly, something for the law librarians: how do you reconcile your own ethics with the ethics of your employer? Being a bleeding-heart liberal hippie type in a pretty big firm, I struggle with this every so often. I don't have any brilliant answers, but I'm glad to know others out there think about this sort of thing, too.
Tomorrow: links from others!
