"The more we try to get a grip on information,

Information, in fact, is the ghost of meaning,

signals a continuing loss of meaning."

1.  Whale-Watching-Web 
This metasite, by Rauno Lauhakangas of the University of Helsinki, Finland, 
includes a myriad of whale-related topics, some of which are scientific. 
The research-oriented sections include: Oceanographic Research (a 
collection of links to research sites, i.e. The Radio Acoustic Positioning 
and Telemetry Network -- a useful technique for monitoring whale/fish 
behavior); Cetacean's Rights (a section providing examples of legislation 
regulating whale-watching in Argentina, New Zealand, and elsewhere); and 
Bioacoustics (a section of links dedicated to Cetacean Research 
Technology). Educators will find useful information and compelling 
photographic images in the Cetacean Encyclopaedia (an introduction to whale 
species); Cetacean Pictures; and Virtual Whale Watching (a high-tech, 
state-of-the-art introduction to virtual whale-watching). [LXP]

2.  _The World Factbook 1997_--CIA [frames] 
Chiefs of State and Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments 
The US Central Intelligence Agency has recently released the 1997 version 
of this annual series of country information reference books. Data is 
available for over 250 countries. For each country, map and flag, 
geographic, population, government, economic, communication, 
transportation, military, and transnational issue information is provided 
for the latest year available. There are also seventeen individual 
reference maps and eight appendices. Derived from several US sources, this 
information has proved to be an indispensable reference source for those 
who want quick, thumbnail country information. Note that this Factbook 
supersedes previous editions. In addition, the CIA's Chiefs of State and 
Cabinet Members of Foreign Governments site has recently been updated. [JS]

3.  NewsReal Industry Watch [JavaScript] 
Via CNNfn 
Via Infoseek 
CNNfn recently incorporated NewsReal Industry Watch into its web based news 
service. NewsReal Industry Watch has been available for some time via 
Infoseek. This powerful news service provides daily coverage of hundreds of 
stories in 20 categories via various wire services and newspapers, and 
presents this material in a unique, interactive format. When users click on 
a category from aerospace to utilities, a list of stories appears. Users 
can then simply move the mouse over a story for an executive summary of the 
story, which includes the source. One click on the story then brings up the 
full text, if available. This format allows quick scanning of many stories, 
a feature that can help the user decide which ones to investigate. The only 
drawback is that only five stories are listed at once and users must 
continually move to the next set of stories. A searchable archive is 
available. [JS]

4.  _We Remember: A Reflection on the Shoah_--The Holy See [frames] 
Select: _We Remember: A Reflection on the Shoah_ 
The Holy See's (Vatican--discussed in the April 4, 1997 Scout 
Commission for Religious Relations With the Jews, a part of the Pontifical 
Council for Promoting Christian Unity, has recently released this fourteen 
page document, eleven years in the making, at the Holy See web site. The 
document is historic in its attempt to come to grips with the amount of 
assistance that Christians gave to Jews during the Holocaust. It states: 
"Those who did help to save Jewish lives as much as was in their power, 
even to the point of placing their own lives in danger, must not be 
forgotten... Alongside such courageous men and women, the spiritual 
resistance and concrete action of other Christians was not that which might 
have been expected from Christ's followers... For Christians, this heavy 
burden of conscience of their brothers and sisters during the Second World 
War must be a call to penitence." The document is currently available in 
English and Italian. [JS]

5.  As-You-Like-It-Library, Seattle 
Dear fellow Librarians- I manage an alternative library in Seattle,  
Washington that is independent of any government,academic, or corporate  
control.  It is the As-You-Like-It-Library in Seattle.  We have been in  
Seattle since 1961. We are basically metaphysical, occult, spiritual  
althought we do have some political material both left and right. In fact  
several sites link to the conspiracy section of our book-list.  
Our web-site is  I'd be interested in  
feedback in how you think our library fits in to the anarchist  
progressive spectrum ,if at all, especially our mission statement under 
WHY. If you get a chance check out our web-site and tell me what you  
think.- Philip Lipson-Librarian  <ayli[at]>

8. ACLU Press Release on ruling in favor of lawsuit challenging filters 
According to an ACLU press release (April 7), the first major ruling on 
the use of Internet blocking software in libraries, a federal district judge 
today forcefully rejected a government motion to dismiss a lawsuit 
challenging the use of such software in public libraries in Loudoun 
County, Virginia.   
The American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Virginia, which 
represent a diverse group of eight Internet speakers seeking to reach 
library patrons, hailed the ruling as one of the strongest ever defenses 
of online free speech.

9.  Text of Loudon County ruling (same case as #8 above) 
 The trustees of the Loudoun County (Virginia) Library are being sued to get 
 them to stop filtering library web access. The judge (I hear she is a 
 former librarian) ruled that the  board members as individuals could be 
 dismissed from the suit. The judge wants to hear more about the filtering 
 policy and the X-Stop software they use before ruling on the defendants' 
 other motion to toss out the suit. If you want to read yesterday's ruling,

11.  "There is No Such Thing as Information" 
a talk by 
Stephen L. Talbott 
Senior Editor at O'Reilly and Associates and  
author of The Future Does Not Compute and NETFUTURE. 
"The more we try to get a grip on information,  
the more it slips through our fingers like a ghost.  
Information, in fact, is the ghost of meaning,  
and our society's worship of the ghost  
signals a continuing loss of meaning." 
Stephen L. Talbott has worked full-time with computers  
since 1980 as a technical writer and software developer.  
For the past several years Mr. Talbott has been senior  
editor at O'Reilly & Associates, a leading publisher  
of technical books about computers. In 1995 O'Reilly  
published Mr. Talbott's book, The Future Does Not  
Compute: Transcending the Machines in Our Midst.  
This was one of the three or four books that initiated  
the highly public and controversial reassessment of  
networking technology, following the public's initial  
rush to the Internet. It was named one of the "Outstanding  
Academic Books of 1996" by the library journal, Choice,  
and an "Outstanding Book of the Year" by UNIX Review.  
Mr. Talbott is also the publisher of one of the  
most respected online newsletters, called NETFUTURE,

12.  ALA join challenge to bookstore subpoena in Lewinski hubbub 
>From ALA News Release 
ALA, Freedom to Read Foundation join challenge to bookstore subpoena The 
American Library Association (ALA) and its sister organization, the Freedom to 
Read Foundation, have joined with booksellers, publishers and other groups in 
support of a legal challenge to the subpoena issued by independent counsel 
Kenneth Starr for records of Monica Lewinsky's book purchases. 
*We believe there is a fundamental right to privacy in regard to the books you 
read, * said William R. Gordon, executive director of the American Library 
Association. *Whether it's what you borrow from libraries or purchase from 
bookstores, what you read is nobody's business but yours.  The action taken by 
the Office for Independent Counsel tramples the First Amendment.* 
An amicus brief supporting a motion by Kramerbooks & Afterwords to quash 
the subpoena was filed April  2, in U.S. District Court for the District of 
Columbia.  Other organizations joining the brief are the American Association 
of Publishers, the American Booksellers Association and the American 
Booksellers Foundation for Free Expression. The document is under seal as are 
all proceedings in a grand jury hearing. 
The mission of the American Library Association, based in Chicago, is to 
promote the highest quality library service and public access to information. 
The association has 57,000 members, including librarians, trustees and other 
library supporters. 
13.  Freedom of Information in the Publishing Industry discussion on CSPAN 
That's Saturday, April 11 at 8pm. 
The US publishing industry is in crisis.  As global corporations absorb one 
publishing house after another, celebrity titles push serious books on to 
the basement shelves of mega-bookstores. Sales are down and the overall 
literary quality is lower than it has ever been. How bad is it? And what can 
be done?   
On Wednesday, March 11, the Media Literacy Club at New York University will 
host a roundtable discussion on commercial and governmental pressures on the 
book publishing industry. Media critic and author Mark Crispin Miller of 
NYU's department of Culture and Communication will discuss the trend toward 
conglomerate ownership and its overall effects on the type of books 
published and promoted.  Andre Schiffrin of the New Press and Peter Osnos of 
PublicAffairs will each discuss the perils of independent publishing in the 
current environment, as well as their different strategies to remain in 
business. Nancy Kranich, NYU's Associate Dean of Libraries and American 
Library Association board member, will discuss the effects of these trends 
on libraries and the declining amount of information available to  
authors and the public-at-large due to privatization of government  
information services. 
Peter Osnos, Publisher and Chief Executive of PublicAffairs: Peter Osnos was 
Publisher of Random House's Times Books Division from 1991-1996 and before 
that was a Vice President and Associate Publisher of the Random House 
imprint.  Before entering book publishing, Osnos spent nearly twenty years 
in various positions at The Washington Post. He has been a commentator and 
host for National Public Radio and has also served as Chair of the Trade 
Division of the Association of American Publishers. 
Andre Schiffrin, Director and Editor-in-Chief, The New Press: Since 1990, 
Andre Schiffrin has been the director and editor-in-chief of the New Press. 
Before that, he was for twenty-eight years the managing director and 
editor-in-chief of Pantheon Books at Random House.  Schiffrin was for many 
years a member of the board of the Freedom to Publish committee of the 
American Association of Publishers, and its anti-censorship committee, the 
Freedom to Read Committee.   
Mark Crispin Miller, Author and Media Critic: Mark Crispin Miller is a 
renowned author and media critic.  His first book, Boxed In: The Culture of 
TV (Northwestern University Press, 1988), was a collection of his essays on 
film, television, advertising and rock music.  He edited Seeing through 
Movies (Pantheon, 1990), Mad Scientists, a study of propaganda in the United 
States, will be published by Norton in 1999, to be followed the next year by 
Spectacle: Operation Desert Storm and the Triumph of Illusion. Miller is a 
professor and director of the Project On Media Ownership (PROMO) at New York 
University. Miller has written extensively on the effects of media 
concentration on book publishing, television news and popular music for The 
Nation and other publications. 
Nancy Kranich, Associate Dean of Libraries at New York University, American 
Library Association Board: Nancy Kranich has also served as the chair  
of the Coalition on Government Information and as host of Freedom of  
Information Day.  She speaks and writes frequently on topics related  
to the information superhighway, government information and  
telecommunication policy.  She is the author of The Internet, Access  
and Democracy. 
14.  Writers Union on Random House Purchase by Bertelsmann 
Date: Tue, 24 Mar 1998 16:41:26 -0800 (PST) 
To: (Recipient list suppressed) 
From: NWU-National Office West <nwu[at]> 
Subject: NWU Criticizes Random House Purchase 
The National Writers Union (NWU) today called the  
announcement that German publisher Bertelsmann plans 
to acquire U.S. book publishing giant Random House  
a serious blow to cultural diversity. "This is  
another troubling step toward the homogenization of  
the media," said Jonathan Tasini, President of the NWU.  
The NWU has long warned about the dangers of  
concentrating the culture industry in the hands of 
a decreasing number of companies. "Fewer companies  
means fewer voices," Tasini stated. This latest  
deal will put Bantam Doubleday Dell, which Bertelsmann 
purchased in 1986, under the same corporate roof as 
the various Random House imprints, which include 
Knopf, Pantheon and Crown. 
"The dwindling number of outlets for trade books 
makes it increasingly difficult for controversial 
or unorthodox trade books to find a home," noted  
Philip Mattera, NWU Vice President and Book Contract 
Advisor. "The merger of two behemoths like Random 
House and Bantam Doubleday Dell shrinks the field 
to an alarming degree." 
The National Writers Union is a nationwide organization 
of some 5,000 freelance writers and authors. It is  
affiliated with the United Auto Workers union and 
the AFL-CIO. 
Commentary on this topic appears as part of editorial

15.  ABA board member Tom Rider on small press issues to address with IPA 
From: Charles Willett <willett[at]> 
Subject: ABA/IPA negiotiations 
I have put ABA board member Tom Rider, a marxist who owns Goerings Book 
Store here in Gainesville, in touch with John Anner, Executive Director of 
the Independent Press Association, following a spirited discussion on the 
IPA listserv in February about how to deal with the chains.  John's message 
to Tom summarizing that discussion is copied below. 
Since Tom and I are going to BookExpo America in Chicago at the end of May, 
I have set up a meeting to discuss these issues with IPA Education Director 
Beth Schulman, who lives and works there. 
In preparation for that meeting, can any of you think of specific ways the 
Alternatives in Print Task Force could assist this possible alliance between 
independent book stores and alternative magazine publishers by introducing a 
third dimension -- libraries?       --Charles 
Dear Tom, 
Charles Willett suggested I get in touch with you regarding areas where the 
Independent Press Association and the ABA might collaborate, or at least 
explore a discussion of the "litany" of mutual issues we face with respect 
to how big chain stores are wiping out the indy book stores and newsstands. 
>From our point of view, there are five main issues: 
1. The declining number of bookstores/newsstands makes it very difficult 
for some magazines to get any kind of single-issue distribution. 
2. Fewer bookstores means that many mags have to deal with the chains; 
there is no other alternative means of distribution. 
3. Small mags have a hard time getting chain accounts. 
4. The chains have enforced onerous terms that mean that even if you do get 
a chain account often you don't make any money from it. 
5. There is a distinct lack of collective means of distribution tailored to 
small magazines; it seems that one way to counteract the power of the 
chains and distribution companies would be to work together but this is not 
happening at the moment. 
The IPA is currently exploring setting up a number of strategy sessions for 
our members to discuss and make plans for how we could work on this issue. 
We would be very interested in seeing how we could join forces with the 
Let me know if you need more detail on any of this.

Contact: DeEtta Jones <deetta[at]> 
ARL Announces.. 
ARL Diversity Program Launches New Publication Series 
      The ARL Diversity Program is launching a publication series 
called "Leading Ideas" to focus attention on the issues of diversity, 
leadership, and career development.  Responding to requests from the 
library and higher education community for resource tools on these 
issues, each newsletter in this series will focus on a particular topic 
and will also provide information and highlight opportunities for 
readers to learn even more about the subject.  Featured articles will 
be authored by those in the field, highlighting talent and tracking 
workplace trends. 
      "Leading Ideas" is being launched in concert with the ARL 
Leadership and Career Development (LCD) Program.  The LCD Program is a 
Higher Education Act grant-funded opportunity that provides librarians 
from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups with a vehicle for 
professional development by enhancing their competitiveness for 
leadership positions in academic and research libraries.  "Leading 
Ideas" will provide a national forum for sharing the research and 
writing of the LCD Program participants. 
      The premier issue of "Leading Ideas" is available in print and 
at the ARL Diversity Program website <>. 
The featured article in the March 1997 issue is, "Promotion and Tenure: 
The Minority Academic Librarian." Written by Mark Winston, ARL Visiting 
Program Officer for Diversity and LCD Program participant, the article 
is based on Dr. Winston's presentation at the 1997 American Library 
Association Annual Conference.  Topics in forthcoming issues include: 
shared leadership, peer information counseling programs, post-master's 
residency programs, affirmative action, and workforce recruitment 
      The ARL Diversity Program defines and addresses diversity issues 
in ARL libraries, supports activities to encourage broad participation 
in the field, and encourages the development of workplace climates that 
embrace diversity.  In its work with the higher education community, the 
Program also addresses recruitment of staff from underrepresented groups 
and assists institutions in designing programs that explore the rich 
gifts and talents diverse individuals bring to their libraries. 
      Six issues of "Leading Ideas" will be published in 1998 and each 
issue will be made available in print and through the Program's website. 
Annual subscriptions are available for $35.00/calendar year
