So my first State Farm call of  [ Read More ]

Karen started by informing us that we’re in a State of Emergency in our profession: We have given away our collectionsAllowing third parties to digitize our books (ex Google Books) parties  [ Read More ]

Code4Lib: Breakout 1

I went to the Library APIs Breakout session today. It turned into a talk about Talis & their products & business practices. It was pretty neat Rob Styles (of Talis) went off on a pretty neat tangent/analogy. Rob introduced us to his 3 children. His 18 month old son is at a stage in his life where he will willingly give away anything. He goes around the house and finds  [ Read More ]
