I got to thinking today as I go through my piles of mail about all the renewals for products I handle…which made me think how cool it is that Indiana has INSPIRE — the statewide intiative through the state library to give all citizens access to databases. I know Michigan does it as well… Tell me this then folks that read my blog… does every state have such a cool thing? What’s its address?

CJ let me know about The September Project and he asked me about Indiana Libraries participating. I believe they do not have a representative library yet from Indiana…

Are you a blogger working in a library? Do write about the comings and goings of library users? Do you blog your interactions with other staff? If so, please take a minute or two and answer some questions for Aaron and I.
We’ll thank you for it!
I had the pleasure of having dinner with Rachel Singer Gordon Saturday night in Orlando! What fun. We fell right into conversation about our libraries, UNT, technology, conferences and writing for the library world.
I appreciate Rachel’s writing and view of the library world! thanks for a great time, Rachel!
Walt took a look at my “Ten Things I’ve learned Presenting at Library Conferences” and added them to his latest issue, with notes of his own and Karen’s stuff as well. Very cool.
It’s a great issue too!
Have I mentioned I’m off to ALA on Thursday? Probably not with all the school stuff starting.
I’m going down for a few meetings, exhibits and to see some library folk. I am also going to visit Disney and Universal!
I was disappointed in the lack of tech stuff at PLA, so we will see how this plays out. I chose a Hilton property that has FREE wireless throughout the building!
I am travelling with my dear friend Keith, who was my roomate through 2 years of undergrad days in Bloomington “back in the day.” We always seem to have a blast no matter where we go.
Shoot me an IM or message if you are going to be there!

Steve Oberg, the Family Man Librarian, just put the finishing touches on a new blog for the Zondervan library at Taylor University.
Nice. I especially like the name… catchy AND relevant.
Way to go Steve!
