@publics roundup

Filed under: @publics — vtdeptlib @ 8:23 am

With some very welcome poking from Stephanie Chase at Stowe Free, I am now going to do weekly posts (at least weekly) that summarize some of the messages to the VALS listserve.  I will NOT include the books for sale, who requested what, the on vacation messages or any others that are specific to ILL services.  I will include general announcements about grant opportunities, conferences, worskhops, etc. that are of general interest to the entire library community.

 My hope is to save ILL staff from having to forward non-ILL messages to appropriate others and to give non-ill staff an alternative to culling the general messages from the ILL-stuff. 

 As I proceed with this plan, do let me know if you think it is helpful, if it just creates a lot of duplication of information that you might do without, or whatever.

 Watch for the first installment later.  And if you want to think about using RSS to stay updated on the Blog, here’s my last pitch for that from an old message to the VALS email list:

….get all of our blog posts delivered to you via RSS (aka Really Simple Syndication or Rich Site Summary). I’ve put together what I think are some really simple directions on how to add RSS feeds for our blog and calendar to your browser or an RSS aggregator: That’s RSS AGGREGATOR, NOT ALLIGATOR (though the visual is pretty amusing and there is an aggregator named Alligator), and you can find out about aggregators here:
