Library Stuff

October is American Archives Month.

List of libraries that use virtual reference or live reference or chat reference. Oh, how I wish I worked somewhere that used modern capabilities. I wish I worked somewhere that didn't have loud-mouthed, rude, common,competitive jerky women too, but that's another rant. Hopefully my situation will be soon changed.

Damn fine science librarian has a damn fine blog.

Most library folk are nuts about signage, yours truly included. Check out these library signs.

I have problems with this on so many levels, but here goes anyway. Looking for a Halloween costume? Look no further. I understand that Target is also selling these.

The United Nations Dag Hammarskjold (yes, there is supposed to be an umlaut over the o in Hammarskjold)Library has a blog.

The British Library's Collect Britain website is awesome. The site showcases thousands of items from the British Library. You can browse the collections, tours and exhibitions, or search the site in many different ways. Register or log-in to enjoy more features.

Great medical librarian blog.

Apparently Henry Ward Beecher loved libraries.

"A library is not a luxury but one of the necessities of life." Henry Ward Beecher

"A little library growing each year is an honorable part of a man's history." Henry Ward Beecher

"A library is but the soul's burial-ground. It is the land of shadows."Henry Ward Beecher
