Most important – why do we need to know all this stuff Gary talked about? Well – we’re the information go-to… we know our collections. We also need to learn online resources, so when people come asking about the web, we can be ready with a good anser, resources to point them to, etc.

publicradiofan.com – what’s coming up on public radio – even opens up the live stream.

search engine ordering – a firefox plugin – will it work with an opac? Hmm…
