Some New Presentation and Search Tools, Courtesy of NCTE

I’m in the Milwaukee airport, on the way home from the NCTE conference. My stay at the conference was shorter and less involved than in previous years (fewer meetings, only one presentation, and more sight-seeing), but I still picked up a few new ideas and materials. I was geeked to buy a number of young […]

More on the Library of the Future

I went to an informative meeting yesterday that was all about the new GVSU library.

Coming Soon: Google Operating System

Full disclosure: I am a huge fan of Google. Beyond just using the basic search engine, I routinely use Google Blog Search, Reader, Scholar, Books, Documents, and even Chrome, their newish web browser. So, I’m pretty geeked that Google is working on a new operating system to challenge industry baddie Microsoft. Apparently, this has been […]
