Reading doesn't just improve your knowledge, it can help fight depression, make you more confident, empathetic, and a better decision maker.

"Join #cookingforcopyright 
FAIR is campaigning for copyright law reform – it’s long overdue – and right now we’re focused on one thing in particular, the fact that in Australia, while copyright is limited to 70 years after the death of the creator for published works, for unpublished works copyright lasts forever. Unpublished works include old diaries, letters, company records, theses – even recipes. The copyright rules as they currently stand mean that these manuscripts, valuable pieces of social history, are locked away – to no one’s benefit. We’d (ALIA) like the same copyright terms for unpublished works as for published works.

Both Faulkner and the physicists may be right: the passage of time is an illusion. And yet, for as long as we’ve been keeping score, it's seemed that history really exists, in increasingly distant forms the further back we look.

 Hi guys! My friend's a real book worm and likes sharing her views on books with other people. Check her blog out and let her know what you think. In her latest post, she explains why she LOVES libraries and HATES owning books. Cheers!

I would love your feedback. I am currently on a county library board. I have in the past been a school librarian and libraries to me are vital for a community to thrive.

In order for public libraries to evolve, what do you feel is the most important changes that need to be made? I am very interested in other librarian's opinions.

 I will be meeting with the other Board members and would love to share your responses.

Thanks

Last month, Librarian of Congress James Billington announced that he will resign as of Jan. 1, 2016, after 28 years in office. Filling this vacancy may not seem like the most pressing matter before President Barack Obama, but in fact the decision is one that could help define his legacy....

In his new book, Scott Sherman describes how bottom-line business logic nearly gutted New York's preeminent public library. Maureen Corrigan calls it a "slim, smart book" full of colorful characters.

Librarians as Teachers conference - Birmingham (Part 2)

Earlier this month I attended the 'Librarians as Teachers' conference, organised by CILIP West Midlands and the ARLG West Midlands Committee. This post is a sort of mini write up of each of the sessions from the day, along with some of my own thoughts on the presentations. As promised, this is part 2!
