What librarians do…

This was a plea that came across my Facebook network tonight, and I am torn between laughing and crying.  But it does feel oh so good to laugh about it, seriously.  Molly Clark (from Syracuse) put it out there for herself and a friend who are taking a class (something related to Syracuse U’s Project Enable.)  Some […]

This hit my PLN recently, and I must confess it excited me too.  My initial thought was wow–something to show the uninformed!  I also celebrated that its creator is from Winthrop University (and I am a 1986 alumni), and really close to my hometown here in the great state of South Carolina Darren Draper challenged […]
