Beloit College has put out its annual "mindset" list of incoming freshmen, which gets scarier as I get older (I suppose that's how these things tend to work). Most incoming freshmen, it says, were born in 1991. Gulp.

Moving into the future, the San Jose Public Library system has launched its "text a librarian" reference service, which looks brilliant. Also, Mumbai has opened its first digital library, hooray!

The Louisville Public Library still needs a lot of help and support after the disastrous flooding of last month. Please help if you can.

The good people at ResourceShelf have a new list of helpful online resources. Did you know you can search all Craigslist postings in all cities at once? It's true!

Check back tomorrow for links sent in by others! Thanks, all.
