New PLG-UA newsletter out

Although I haven't had much time to write any new posts lately (I have been so busy!), I did want to share the new Progressive Librarians Guild - UA Chapter newsletter. I contributed two articles, and there are recaps of events, book reviews, and more. If you haven't tried Scribd before, it's a social publishing platform, allowing tagging of uploaded documents. It uses its iPaper document reader to make text documents like PDFs more readable on the web. As the site says, "[it] transforms 'print' files like PDF, Word or PowerPoint into web document[s] — with all the fonts, layout and artwork that makes your document unique."

Chris Anderson's new book is also available for free on Scribd -- pretty cool! But anyhow, without further adieu...
