Daily Thoughts 12/14/2013

This morning, I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library.

I read some more of Junkyard Planet. Part of this story is about how the United States exports large amounts of scrap copper to China. This helps fuel China's economic growth without having to rely on mining as much new copper. The author travels extensively in China to get the background for this story.

I spent a little time looking at the January 15, 2014 Metro Conference Schedule. Hopefully, I will get to go. There are a few sessions like Transforming Computer Training Services @ Your Library by Brandy McNeil, The New York Public Library and Infrastructure for managing and sharing image collections by James Shulman, ARTstor which look interesting.
