Christmas shoppers are out in droves—that’s a good thing right? Here’s my Christmas list for school. These are things I’m not likely to purchase on my own, but would like to see added to the school resources. I’m not hyperlinking, as I’d like for readers to make recommendations! 1 Terabyte external hard drive I have […]

Recently Carolyn Foote, a friend who is honestly a friend in the virtual sense, as I only know her from Twitter, blogging, webcasts, and Ustream forums, has challenged my thinking about the library.
