Discussion Hello

by Alison Miller on Tue, Mar 17, 2009 at 05:55 pm

Hello~  I just wanted to introduce myself and express an interest in this community.  I'd be interested in sharing information and ideas on best/most useful blogs/wikis/media.  I have a blog and wiki - I use wordpress and PBwiki, as they are free and for personal use.  What do others use and follow?  I also blog for the IPL and will soon start blogging for ALA CLS and SLA IT.  I look forward to connecting.  Cheers~ Alison Miller, Researcher in Distance Education, The Internet Public Library.

Discussion Is anyone interested in playing an unofficial game of "Cruel 2 B Kind" at Annual?

by Jenny Levine (staff) on Wed, Apr 8, 2009 at 02:17 pm

We'd have to figure out the logistics (when, where, etc.), but if there's enough interest, I think it would be a blast to do this. Volunteers to help organize are especially welcome! :)
