Future Librarians Group

I just found out, thanks to this article, that there's a fairly active Facebook group for future librarians. Looks as if there's some good stuff here!

The September Project

I recently interviewed David Silver for ACRLog. He's one of the co-directors of The September Project, a grassroots effort to make libraries a site for civic engagement and discussion of issues. Our library has been involved for a couple of years. It's a nice opportunity to do some programming and build partnerships with people across campus. Quite a few of the projects are organized with other community or campus entities. And what better place to do it than a library?

Over 900 libraries are participting - in 30 countries! Very cool indeed.
