Daily Thoughts 12/4/2010

I spent some time looking at gift policies for libraries.  We are not ordering anything right now except for some furniture that is part of the capital budgets.  I also went through the displays this morning which are emptying very quickly.

I also have a stack of magazines to read.

Content Curation another word for "collection development" or "acquisitions" packaged for the web.  It reminds me a bit of the content strategy group on Meetup .  Maybe if you work managing a collection of ebooks, you might now be called the "content curator".  New media speak can have wonderful implications.

I also was looking at Meetup and came across the Digital Bookworld Meetup.   Digital Book World is a news site for ebooks.
