Digital Preservation and Information Services

I am taking two classes for my master's plus thirty (specialist degree). One is Digital Preservation. The discussions on the boards set up by the professor have ranged from funding to photos fading (especially if you use the inkjet printers) to the reliability of data (when anyone can change it) to saving the data from format to format. In Information Services, we are looking at Web 2.0 applications and if or how you would add them to the library to provide services.



For my big paper… Continue

Greenville Zoo

Here is a personal blog post. I am taking my son to the Greenville Zoo today. I could have gone out of town since I have family in Charleston, and my husband's family lives in Charlotte. However, I did not feel like dealing with the traffic on this Memorial Day weekend.



Anyway, we are going to the zoo. It is a nice zoo because it is small. It only takes an hour to an hour and a half to see all of the animals. There is a great playground right beside the zoo, too. Probably later this… Continue

Library Guidebook

Irene and I decided to work on a library guidebook. It is now available on the common drive. We are having our LAG committee look and make suggestions. Actually, since it is the end of the school year, I don't think they are looking right now.

Anyway, I wanted to make a PDF file because you can have chapters on the left. That way, people could click and jump from section to section. I explained to one of our tech teachers what I wanted, and he suggested using Word, saving the document…

End of the School Year

Well, we are wrapping up another school year. I am SOOOOO glad we clicked on Start Inventory on our circulation software. I am also thankful we have an incredibly great assistant who works nonstop. She, from time to time, would go and scan books with the InPath. So, we don't have many books to hunt down. With AP testing and other interruptions (even though we are closed), we would NEVER be able to finish had we not started early.



If anyone was an AP and/or HSAP testing site and has… Continue

Graphic Artist Visit

If anyone has had a graphic artist or comic book writer visit their school, I would love to hear your experience. I am looking for someone who has some books out that would appeal to teens. Of course, I want them to be a reasonable rate (which means I can't afford Gaiman).

Greetings Susan, 

I'm Mike McQueen, teacher librarian and founder of http://www.GettingBoysToRead.com. Like many school districts, we are in a financial crises. Our school board recently proposed to eliminate ALL 20+ middle school teacher librarians and also cut all 90+ elementary schools to half time. Since we are the biggest district in all of Colorado, we worry this will cause other districts to follow suit. We launched an online movement and are going to do our best to put up a good fight.

If possible, please visit our Facebook page and "Like" us http://www.facebook.com/SupportSchoolLibraries . Adding a positive comment and sharing with your friends would help our morale as well. The board finalizes the budget soon so your timely support would be greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Mike McQueen
