IPL turns ten

Happy tenth birthday Internet Public Library! I didn’t know when I started doing some online reference for them in my last year of library school that they were so new and that a lot of the things they were trying to do were really pretty cutting edge. I still go there today to find good links to author information, to get POTUS information or just to see if my list of the seven basic plots in literature is still there. I guess some of the admiration is mutual, since I just found this on their blogs page

It would be wrong of library students to drop out of their programs and simply read Vermonter Jessamyn West’s blog about creatively integrating techonology and a human-centered approach into library services. But it would be understandable. A great blog.
