Kindling the Fire

The Kindle Fire is a pretty good device for consuming Amazon products, whether we’re talking Amazon music or Kindle e-books. But it’s not very friendly towards using e-books from other sources. If you look for some common e-book reading apps like Aldiko, Bluefire, or txtr in the Amazon app store, you won’t find them. You […]


Some time ago, I heard an interview with James Gleick talking about his book, The Information. I bought the book, but haven’t read more than the first couple of pages. Something about that sampling of the book suggests something to me about the nature of the world, the universe. I have maybe stole this whole […]

Tech Timeline

I’ve been thinking about how much technology has changed since I started working in libraries in 1983. I decided to create a timeline of where I’ve worked and the technological things that happened to me personally and in the workplace. This list does focus on my experience, which is primarily in acquisitions, collections, and reference. […]

Internet Emergency Preparedness

The Internet is a vital part of our work environment today. If your Internet access stops working, do not panic. In the case of such an emergency, follow these steps: Determine if your Internet access is through wi-fi or an ethernet cable. Check to see if the cable is plugged in. Check to see if […]

One Small Word

I’ve always loved a Penguin Classics book. They’re just the right combination of convenience, authenticity, and scholarship. This holds true for the paperbacks as well as the e-books. I’d rather pay 7 or 8 bucks for a nicely edited classic e-book from Penguin than to have to slog through one of those typographical disasters offered […]

<br/>">http://I love social networking, but I think the most important part of Library 2.0 is to enable patrons to DO STUFF with their data. Library portals are a start, but only a very feeble one. In an electronic environment, library users need to be able save, manipulate, and share their links to information. Thus far, libraries have done a terrible job of facilitating this kind of functionality.<br/>

Facebook Applications

I'm going hog-freaking wild with the applications on Facebook! We need some more library applications on there, but not just OPACs.

Tagging Phrases

I love tagging and I love bookmarking. Together they are a great and easy way to classify digital objects, but I rarely take part in social bookmarking sites like Its not that I don't appreciate the social element; social tagging really adds value to the mass of data out there on the web. But there's one thing I can't get past: THE SINGLE-WORD TAG!

I'll never be a devoted user because I can't think that open source should be expressed as opensource or… Continue

Hi Steve,

Edinburgh is actually quite well endowed with libraries of all sorts. There are 4 universities and various colleges, law firms, governmental bodies, not to mention the public libraries. while not everything, shows current vacancies in the UK.

Glad you like Edinburgh!!!
