Quote for the week: 
"The use of e-mail, online catalogs, the Internet, and cleverly designed 
home pages that have the look and feel of a modern library have, in a virtual 
sense, created a situation in which one cannot distinguish the library's 
presence from that of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 
Ryder Truck Rental, or Duffy's Tavern in Boalsburg, Pennsylvania."

Announcing the birth of a new discussion list:  NEWLIB-L. 
NEWLIB-L is a discussion list for librarians new to the profession who wish 
to share experiences and discuss ideas, issues, trends, and problems faced 
by librarians in the early stages of their careers.  However, this list is 
also of interest to those who are considering becoming librarians, and to 
those established in the profession who might wish to mentor newcomers. 
The list is currently open to all librarians--academic, public, special, etc. 
To subscribe, please send a note to:  listproc[at]

Hi!  I'm glad to hear that there is some interest out there for a 
discussion list for new librarians, those interested in librarianship or 
those interested in mentoring new librarians!  I did want to let you all 
know that there is another list, sponsored by the American Library 
Association New Members Round Table, 
that has this same mission ... NMRT-L at nmrt-l[at]  For more 
information about NMRT-L, see the ALA New Members Round Table web site 
(  ALA NMRT is an organization for anyone who 
has been a member of ALA for less than 10 years.  The list, however, is 
open to anyone, whether you're an ALA member or not. 
NMRT-L is a list for new librarians, library school students, library 
laypeople, those interested in librarianship, vendors, new ALA members, or 
anyone interested in issues pertaining to these groups.  ALA NMRT is a 
great support group and our list is a great way for us to keep in touch 
and to share our experiences.  It's a great forum for those of you who 
can't attend conferences to find support or encouragement for day-to-day 
problems or issues.  In my experience, NMRT has been a great way to meet 
others & make interesting contacts, to broaden my perspective and to find 
supportive, encouraging, energetic friends out there in libraryland.  We 
find that sometimes NMRT-L can seem overwhelmed with announcements & 
committee business ... but we would love to see this forum used more as a 
discussion forum for your on-the-job or career questions.

10. and Image Bank [Quicktime, RealPlayer,.mpeg] 
Image Bank 
This powerful gateway to stock, archival, and news footage is designed with 
media professionals in mind. However, certain researchers and perhaps some 
instructors can make excellent use of its access to over 1.6 million 
indexed shots. The site's Global Search page allows users to perform 
keyword searches of hundreds of major stock footage sources worldwide or 
within selected major databases. Most search returns include only clip 
descriptions, technical details, and ordering information. However, some 
databases, such as the Image Bank, provide online samples. Production 
professionals who cannot find particular clips through the search page can 
fill out a free Zap Request form, which is forwarded to footage companies 
and researchers who may be able to assist (note the Zap Request service is 
not available for personal or educational use). Additional resources at the 
site include a directory of key resources and contacts in the footage trade 
and a Newswire listing of the latest industry stories. [MD]

11. The American Museum of Photography 
A virtual visit to the American Museum of Photography includes all the 
amenities you would expect at a "real" museum -- exhibitions to browse 
through, a guided tour, education and research resources, a museum store, 
and even a museum cafe (a link to cybermeals, an online restaurant guide at The photographs on display are selected from 
the collection of William B. Becker, who also serves as the Museum's 
director. Becker's collection is strongest in the first 75 years of 
photography, 1839 to World War I, and "includes five thousand individual 
images, from the earliest daguerreotype portraits through the first 
practical color photographs." Some of the current exhibitions feature 
architectural photographs; cartes de visite, the small card photographs 
extremely popular in the second half of the nineteenth century; and a set 
of silver prints made in the 1930s by a Japanese department store executive 
on a world tour. Perhaps the most charming exhibit, entitled "At Ease," 
consists of a group of daguerreotype portraits compiled to contradict the 
notion that all sitters in old photographs look stiff and uncomfortable.

Below is the resolution which Jim Casey and I have drafted for ALA 
Midwinter. Comments on form and content are welcome either to me: 
mailto: mgolrick[at] 
or to Jim Casey: 
mailto: jimcasey[at] 
Resolution of the E-Rate Discount Program 
Whereas, the E-Rate Discount Program was designed to assist 
the libraries and schools located in areas which are in the greatest 
need of funding assistance, and that libraries and schools in such 
areas are less likely to have the human resources and staff time 
available to devote to lengthy and complicated application 
processes, and; 
Whereas, the Schools and Libraries Corporation (SLC) and the 
Federal Communications Commission (FCC) have established 
an application process which is so complicated that it has 
required required 9 months for the SLC to simply review the 
applications which were submitted by the April 15, 1998 
deadline, and; 
Whereas, less than 10% of libraries which have submitted 
applications have received any confirmation as to the status 
of their applications for discount and none to date (1/1/99) 
have received any funds resulting from this application process, 
Whereas, libraries across the United States have already 
expended very large amounts of precious staff time in order to 
establish elibigility for badly needed E-Rate discounts: 
Now therefore be it resolved, that the American Library Association urges: 
That the SLC and FCC take steps immediately to reduce the amount 
of paperwork required for libraries to establish eligibility for E-Rate 
That the President and Executive Board appoint a task force of interested 
library professionals to offer to participate as library community 
representatives  in a review of the processes and procedures of the SLC 
(or its successor organization) for the distribution of E-Rate Discounts; 
That the President of ALA write to the SLC to as that the agency be more 
sensitive to the proportion of schools and libraries in any future 
announcements and actual distributions; 
And that the President of ALA write to the SLC to ask that all future 
discounts be awarded with greater dispatch.

Dear Friends, 
I am sending this message out to friends who may be interested in 
supporting the Birzeit University Library in Ramallah, Palestine.  As many 
of you know, I visited the Birzeit Library this summer.  It is the major 
Palestinian university, located on the West Bank.  During the intifada, it 
was closed for 5 years.  All services were stopped, including collection 
development.  A colleague and I promised to help provide some books to 
bolster their collection. 
If you would like to help contribute, I have attached a Word document and 
copied a text file below of the books the Library has requested with the 
price at  Please respond to me directly (kpomeran[at] 
with the name of the book you would like to provide.  I will let you know 
if it is still needed and give you suggestions for purchasing it. (Checks 
can be sent to me and I will order; you can also order directly). 
If you know others who would be interested, please pass this along.  It is 
greatly appreciated by the Birzeit Library staff and the people they 
serve.  Any suggestions of groups to contact are also appreciated. 
thanks, karyn

18. "SHOP" Button on Britannica Online 
Date: Mon, 11 Jan 1999 16:44:23 -0800 (PST) 
From: Kathy Mcgreevy <kathy[at]> 
Subject: "SHOP" Feature on New Version of Britannica Online 
To: ccc-lib-lrc-list[at] 
MIME-version: 1.0 
Greetings, CCC librarians. 
If your library susbscribes to Britannica Online, thought you might be 
interested in the following: 
I just happened to take a quick look at Britannica Online's new version, 
now in beta, final version to be released next month. (It's linked from 
their current version, top-level page.) 
I was astonished to see a "SHOP" button on the Britannica navigation bar 
at the top of the screen in the new version. The button appears on every 
screen, and it leads users to a page advertising Britannica and 
Merriam Webster products, electronic and print, and offering users the 
opportunity to buy/subscribe online. 
I don't know how you feel about this, but we do not endorse, advertise or 
sell products in our library, and I find this feature, in a product which 
we license for a fee, really objectionable. If you feel this way, too, you 
might want to let the Britannica folks know before this becomes part of 
the final release. There's a "comments" link on the page. 
(But isn't it great having Britannica online?)

19. Hypatia's Humorous Library Tales 
 "What's this all about?" you may ask. Well, I work in a library in 
Mid-Missouri. People who don't work in a library expect that librarians 
and library assistants have it pretty easy--nice and quiet, no pressure, 
no problems,  right? Wrong! Don't get me wrong--I love my job. But some 
weird things have been known to happen around here . . ."
