Carl Spitzweg: Der Zeitungsleser, 1868

Daily Thoughts 4/17/2009

This is a very nice list of book review sites on the internet. I have added it to my side bar.

Since I have been moved to collection development I have asked for minor changes to the way things are shelved. I am trying to make sure that the oversize books are properly kept in their own section. Oversize or quarto is measured as 26 centimeters in size. There is also some moving of books into the storage area which are still essential but not high circulation.

One of our new librarians suggested a revision of the way we are tracking books that people ask for which we do not have. It should be helpful.

Youtube is now hosting full length television shows. I found something I have wanted to watch, the complete run of Roughnecks: Starship Troopers, a CGI cartoon.

Hi, if you enjoy the fantasy allegory, may I suggest one to look at? "Outcasts Of Skagaray" can be previewed by reading the sample chapters on I too love books, and have a large collection of eclectic nature. My blog is if you feel like checking it. Best wishes, whatever happens.
