The 2009 Library Movers & Shakers have been announced, and I actually know some of them, which is exciting! Also, it's fun to have the Shanachies on the list.|
On AskMetafilter, there's a discussion going on about which questions get asked the most of librarians by patrons. Sadly, "Where's the bathroom?" is probably the winner, followed by "Can you fix the copier/printer/computer?"
Today's depressing news: handwriting is a dying art, and newspapers are a dying industry.
Today's cheering news: the Portland (Maine) library is getting an ultra-modern makeover, and a discovery in a Geneva archive may lead to identifying millions of WWI soldiers in unmarked graves.
Tomorrow: links from others!
