When you come here, you're going to find libraries raising themselves up from the dust. We're down, but we're not out. We're working very diligently trying to put our libraries back on the map, back into the situation we were in before—even better than we were before. You're going to find that some of us have made more progress than others, but there will always be the spirit of hope.—Dr. Read More »

A few weeks ago, Jenny and I found ourselves at a meeting at ALA Headquarters talking about Web 2.0, learning, and Library 2.0 initiatives with some of the ALA division heads, Mary Ghikas, Senior Associate Executive Director, and the Otter Group's Kathleen Gilroy.

Sad news has gripped us here at ALA. Tuesday, Gerald Hodges, associate executive director for marketing and communications, passed away. American Libraries Online provides a bit about Gerald's life, accomplishments, and his important contributions to the Association and to the field here.
A longtime member and supporter of ALA, Hodges had stipulated that a portion of his estate be used to establish the Gerald Hodges Fund, in support of intellectual freedom issues and legal challenges to legislation such as the Children's Internet Protection Act and the USA Patriot Act.

As Countdowns and Top [insert number here] Lists are the rage this time of year for content producers, bloggers who will be attending ALA Midwinter in San Antonio may want to know that there are only 19 days until OCLC's Blog Salon, er... and there are only 17 more days until Midwinter begins in San Antonio.
