Make Your Life a Masterpiece. Peter Legge.

Happy Canada Day

Make Your Life a Masterpiece. Peter Legge. 2006. ISBN 0969544790. A series of short examples by easily one of Canada’s best public speakers. Peter loves to illustrate great ideas and motivate others.¬† These are very useful for that. I would suggest you have this on the top¬† of your desk to grab when you need a bit of a pick me up. Clearly , easily written, you could read it in a few hours, but you would miss out on the impact of contemplation. -

This Book is Overdue. How librarians and cyber librarians can save us all. Marilyn Johnson. 2010. ISBN 9780061962103. A surprising book in that it covers quite a bit of ground . Topics range form protecting civil liberties, copy write, freedom of the press, Second Life by Linden Labs, cyber librarians , physical libraries and what is happening to them, collections, archiving , referencing  and what to do with Henry Millers archives (among others) . Not badly written I can not say I loped through this. Lots of food for thought and it gives me ideas on how libraries are remaining relevant. and continue to do so. Plus lots of insight into many personalities among librarians.
