For perhaps the first time, the January issue that begins a new volume of Cites & Insights is available in…January.
Cites & Insights Books at Lulu.com (http://lulu.com/waltcrawford/) now offers these volumes in paperback form, $29.50 each, with a bonus in each case (and full-color cover photos). The bonus for Volume 7 is Cites on a Plane, the phantom issue from January 2007. For Volume 6, it’s a brief preface including “where are they now?” notes on liblogs studied in 2005 and 2006 that have either moved, changed names or apparently gone silent.
Some thoughts after a few weeks working on the PALINET Leadership Network, including my current take on “Who’s a leader?”
A full year after the previous coverage of Open Content Alliance and Google Book Search, it’s time for some updates, but also a quick retrospective of C&I coverage of these projects.
Does “everybody” actually use Netflix? Have we all become upper middle class? Is there some limit to disposable income–and are some of us disposing of income we don’t really have? Some thoughts on ubiquity and reality.
Next month? Maybe back to “normal,” whatever that might be–and maybe, just maybe, the academic library companion to Public Library Blogs: 252 Examples.
