LRTS - new issue received

The Association for Library Collections & Technical Services has issued a reprint of their (1957) vol1 1, no. 1 Library Resources & Technical Services bundled in with the current (April 2007). The size, the type, the graphics - all different. On quick read, though, I agree with Peggy Johnson's editorial preface to the reprint: the more things change, the more they stay the same.

In a continuing note - one thing that never changes is the need to keep up!

Want to learn more about all the "something 2.0" that's going around? Learning 2.0 is a site to help you learn by doing and trying and, well, involving yourself in a little constructivist education. A nine-week course of explorations is part of their 23 Things contest. The contest itself is over, but the blog and activities remain as a fun way to get up to speed on the 2.0 technologies.

On a totally fun but sort of work related tangent: MOO. A business card printer like not too many others. Import your artwork to their site and they'll print it on your business (and personal exchange) cards. You'll learn how to upload and use Flick'r in the 2.0 exercises above - import them into MOO!

Have a great Friday the 13th!
