Daily Thoughts 09/25/2015

I checked the Twitter and Facebook for the library this morning.

We had a management meeting this morning where we discussed the new website.  We also looked at Scannx which is a book scanner.  We may be getting this to scan some of the material for the local history room including photographs, pamphlets, and other materials.  The software is cloud based.  It was interesting looking at the technology.  In addition to scanning it can email and fax documents.

Later in the afternoon, we looked at WestlawNext which is a legal database.  The main advantage that it has over Lexis is that it contains McKinney's New York Annotated.  We asked some questions about Keycite and some other legal resources.  We are looking at possibly getting it for coverage of New York and Federal laws.

I printed up some more flyers for the Latino Americans 500 Years of History programs.  I also sent out a few more flyers via email.  I am hoping we have a good turnout on Tuesday.  Leandro Benmergui will be discussing Latino Migration to the United States on Tuesday night from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. using clips from the documentary Latino Americans 500 Years of History.  He is the Director of Casa Purchase at SUNY Purchase and is a professor of Latin American Studies and History.

I have several copies of Publishers Weekly to read.

I also checked the displays and the gift books.
