A matter of fact, If I had a choice, I would leave the library field and pursue other opportunties in the field of education. I do not want to be sexism, the field has too many women; there is no opportunity for growth; and women are too emotional.

Dennis,

Yeah, McCloud’s books are great, especially his first one and his most recent one.

Create Your own Graphic Novel Using Digital Techniques by Mike Chinn and Chris McLoughlin is also a good book for anyone who wants to understand what it takes to create comics, and like McCloud’s books it’s visual approach is very appropriate to the topic.

I’d also suggest you check out these recent books if you haven’t already.

Reading Comics: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean by Douglas Wolk

Unpopular Culture: Transforming the European Comic Book in the 1990s by Bart Beaty

The System of Comics by Thierry Groensteen, Bart Beaty, and Nick Nguyen

The Wolk book is very good, the Beaty book is excellent so far (and check out the archive of his Euro-comics columns at http://www.comicsreporter.com/index.php/briefings/euro_archives/ while you’re at it), and the System of Comics has been interesting so far but is quite academically dense.

Let me know what you think if you read any of them. And thanks for the invitation!

Hi Stephen: My twitter project is only 2 days old so no feedback yet. I would be very interested in opinions, useful, useless, I'm not sure myself. I presently do not notify patrons that their questions may be twittered. I have read the ALA privacy & confidentiality info and I'm confident that I've built enough anonymity into the project. I believe the main point is to avoid personally identifiable information, so I avoid names and times. I even try to state the questions in the broadest terms possible. Let me know what you think and tell people to take a look. Comments are always welcome.

Yes, we're excited about the upcoming program. Sandusky was a stop on the underground railroad so that's the link to inviting Mr. Burroughs.

Nice local history blog! I'm sure your genealogy librarian is excited about the upcoming Tony Burroughs seminar. That's a major event at your library.

Dennis, I am glad that you enjoy reading my blog. I agree with you that technology is an impediment now for older adults interested in e-books - especially for the "greatest generation" - the boomer generation is starting to get much more comfortable with technology. That is why I liked the idea of the Kindle - there is no need to have a computer and an internet connection to download the books. It uses cell phone technology and seems like it might be easy to use. However, I am not sure how hard the Kindle would be to use if a person has arthritis, though.

Dennis,

I think tagging and recommendations are the most obvious addition. I just came across a LibraryThing app that looks promising: http://www.librarything.com/forlibraries/

We're just now starting to explore Library 2.0 at my site.

BTW, my dog is almost the spitting image of Abigal. Is she a purebred or mix? My Jonathan is a poodle-something! :-)
