If you have any YA or Kid/Teen experience, you might want to join the DPLA Ebook Collection Curation Corps to find free ebooks for DPLA and develop good metadata for your selections.  Sounds fun to me!!

This is fantastic!  Congratulations to the brave souls that are willing to give it a try!  A much needed service for "unbanked patrons"!

Good article about the state of discovery interfaces.  Nice to hear from people in the trenches for a change!
Librarians want to make their content searchable, but they’re wary of commercial software that may skew the results.

Orange County trying out this new Bluetooth Beacon that alerts passersby of groovy events happening at the Library - The Matrix is alive and well!
Two beacon companies have developed unique solutions to help libraries send data about their programs or other details to patrons who download an app and then pass a library's beacons.

"Data connectivity is intrinsic to most of our daily lives. The place which exists in almost every community large or small, rural or urban, is the public library. Ben Lee argues that not only do libraries provide free access to data, but they do so in an environment which is trustworthy and neutral, geared to learning. Access to digital technology increasingly overlaps with access to opportunity and it is important to recognise the role public libraries already play (and have always played) in keeping the gate to knowledge open. "  Yup.

Who will be the first one to stick an RFID tag in this stuff.  And then its off to the races!
Graphene is the thinnest and strongest material around, and it could radically transform the way gadgets are made.

We've been Jared's customer now for several months and our pool has never been cleaner! I don't know how he does it but he slips in quietly, cleans and balances the pool and is out in no time at all. He's responsible about the animals on our property - never leaves the gate open - and is always on schedule. We're very happy with Linden's Pool Service!
