So much to tell, so little time, so here are the highlights:
- RLG and OCLC are merging. That’s all we know. (via Walt at Random) Update: Here’s the Press Release.
- Woody Evans of ISHUSH has started a blog for library hacks, shortcuts, freebies, etc called libSOS.
- For those of you wondering about iTunes U, Berkeley has a bunch of stuff that you can listen to from their account. (via Librarian in Black)
- Peter Jasco’s PowerPoint presentation on Google Scholar is … informative.
- Jenny Levine and Michael Stephens are going to teach a Library 2.0 class.
- Charles Bailey has put the preprint of his paper “Strong Copyright + DRM + Weak Net
Neutrality = Digital Dystopia?” up on the web (in PDF).
- And last but not least, I learned from NPR this evening that … um … ladies of the night make great elder-care practitioners (once they’ve gone through the state-sponsored re-training process) because they’re so attuned to customer service. Learn something new every day… and laugh.
That’s the quick stuff. I’ve got more to write about, so I’ll be back with a “feature length” post or two in a bit. (I attended a lecture that gave me some new ideas for library instruction.)
