Daily Thoughts 11/13/2011
This morning I checked the Facebook and Twitter accounts for the library.
I finished taking Microsoft Publisher Essentials 2010 today. I plan on taking Microsoft Access 2010 Essentials and Microsoft Powerpoint 2010 Essentials all from Lynda.com. I will have finished most of the office productivity basic courses. In addition, I am hoping that I can finish taking Illustrator for Adobe next. This will allow me to be trained in most of the essential office software by the end of the year.
I read a little bit more of The Better Angels of Our Nature this morning. The author is describing how nation states reduce violence. He is describing the transition from medieval thinking to modern thinking and how it makes us more civil. Right now, Steven Pinker is focusing on England.

Unusual Library Finds A New Home
I like this because it speaks for libraries taking on more local material.
