The part libraries play in education is the part bubbles play in champagne.  They may seem at first to be merely a shimmery addition, but they are the central feature of the entire enterprise and the reason, joyous and astonishing, to keep imbibing.

Photo 5 Oct 4 notes Sweet feature in today’s SF Chronicle/SFGate on my younger daughter’s preschool (our preschool is the best preschool). She made the cover photo (although, sigh, they got our name wrong).
She’s the third person in our family to go to our preschool, after her older sister, and me…back in the early 80s.

Photo 3 Oct 28 notes Adventures in weeding: this is a book cover that exists.
We’re keeping it, obviously. For reasons.
EDIT: I have since learned two three noteworthy things: 1) our copy is a first edition (second printing though), and 2) this book was the basis for the musical Cats. AND 3) this cover was illustrated by T.S. Eliot himself.

Quote 3 Oct 11 notes
At the moment, the best estimate is that by 2017 or 2018, approximately 50% of all journal articles in that year will be published as ‘born open access.’ I believe that in the last 12 months there has been a sudden internalization of this fact by the wider publishing industry—namely that OA is about to become the dominant publication mode for journal articles.
