Government Changes Information about Women and Girls

Friday, April 30th, 2004

After seeing an article in Reuters, a news library colleague posted the above link to The MisInformation Clearinghouse by The National Council for Research on Women to a discussion list.

Friday, April 30th, 2004

is when I can see how someone has used the information or material I’ve given him. It’s a very nice compliment to know someone found it useful.

About the Features on this Blog

Thursday, April 29th, 2004

A few days ago, someone e-mailed me asking about some of the features on this blog, like the calendar, and how to do them in HTML. I’m answering onblog instead of via e-mail because I imagine some of you may have similar questions. A lot of the nifty features of this blog are macros in […]

IRC Transcript of the Librarianesque Session

Monday, April 26th, 2004

Jort Mentink posted “cleaned up” IRC transcripts of many BloggerCon sessions, including the Librarianesque Session. Thanks, Jort! And thanks, Sam, for typing the session so that those in IRC could follow the not-so-audible Webcast better.

Dutch Blogger Picks Up the Librarianesque Session

Monday, April 26th, 2004

Too bad I can’t read Dutch. Another blogger writing in a foreign language that seemed Germanic pointed to me a few days ago. I can’t find the link or remember who it was now. I think the jist of the post was something about librarians not knowing what blogs are. Addendum 4/29: Check out Jort’s […]
