I guess I knew this day would come, but surprisingly, I’m not sad about it. With lots of exciting but time-consuming things happening in my life lately, and a moderately successful new group blogging endeavour underway, I’m just not committed to this blog the way I used to be…and...
Karen over at Library Technician Dialog has just written a great post entitled “A Value Proposition“. In it she explains something we’ve been thinking a talking about lately: why Winnipeg law firms don’t employ as many library staff as similarly-sized firms in other cities...
I’ve been thinking all day about who I might write about for Ada Lovelace Day, the day that celebrates women and technology. I realised that it would only be fitting to write about two women who taught me during my two years doing the Library & Information Technology Program at SAIT....
An article entitled “Happy Together: How to Foster Mutually Beneficial Librarian-Vendor Partnerships” in the February 2009 issue of AALL Spectrum caught my eye. (hat tip: Library Boy) Written by Devin GawneMark and Sarah Nichols, the article provides an excellent overview of both sides of the...

I really enjoyed Laurie Mapp’s latest post over at Halo Secretarial Services. In it, Laurie explains why non-lawyers have an important place in the legal blogosphere: “Non lawyers are important and valuable assets, whether to brick and mortar law firms or virtual practices. In fact in...
It’s a weird feeling to see my generation being described over and over again in the current business and library literature. Net Generation, Gen Y, Millennials, Echo Boom…there are a million names and the birth-year range is up for debate, but generally accepted to be anyone born about...
One of the things I miss most about working in BC is the fantastic BC Courthouse Library system. This week’s news is just one more reason for that. They’ve now got a new name (Courthouse Libraries BC), URL (http://www.courthouselibrary.ca), look, and logo, and along with that, a fresh...
