So Much to Blog About; So Little Time

Lots of good stuff has been coming up lately and I've been too swamped to write any decent posts. But rather than keep it all to myself, I'm going to share a few things quickly:

++ Newsweek magazine had a great My Turn dept by a librarian! This is not only a major coup for us, but it's so beautifully written, you gotta check it out!

++ Gale is having a video contest in conjunction w/ National Library Week. You could win $5,0000! Entrants must load their videos to the Librareo group on YouTube ( before midnight EST on June 1, 2009. Rules are here.

++ Finally, here's a short, fun video that's a promotion for the UGame, ULearn conference in Delft, the Netherlands on 23 April. I'll be there speaking on marketing in future libraries. (You can use this site to translate the whole page to English.)
