Daily Thoughts 8/31/2010
Today has been another steady day. I worked on a bookmark for starting a business with a list of recommended book titles. I am also thinking about doing another one which points to different web sites for business. I also looked around a little more in the storage stacks. I still have to look at our electronic ordering.
http://www.libraryjournal.com/lj/home/886292-264/every_reader_a_reviewer_the.html.csp An article from Library Journal on how reviews have spilled out of the professional journals to all over the web.
I found the new website for Acquisitions Web which is a resource site for acquisitions and collection development librarians. It has a lot of useful information on the site. The site is designed in Drupal which is an open source content management system. http://www.acqweb.org/
I read a little bit more of Common As Air. It is a very philosophical book. The author is very focused on ideas.
My library is seeking two trustees. I am hoping the board chooses someone with strong fundraising skills, a sense of customer service, and strong ties with the local arts community. The address to apply is in the briefing. http://www.lohud.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=20108240337
I added the month of June to my list of book reviews. I am thinking of what comes after this.
