Daily Thoughts 06/09/2014
On the way to work, I read some more of Are Libraries Obsolete? I am reading about copyright and the various issues surrounding copyright on the web. There is some interesting material on open access and creative commons licensing.
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning. I also checked the displays and the gift books. I put in an order for bestsellers and patron requests. It looks like most of the books from Book Expo America are being added. I am working on the summer reading schedule with a colleague, she is doing most of the work. A lot of it is confirming programs so we can prepare flyers and publicity.
I also have been thinking about self published authors and local authors.
I spent some time working with the oversize books.
On the way home, I read some more of War and Gold. I am reading about the creation of the Euro currency which is strongly backed by the French.
