The big news this week in law librarian land was the recent ad sent out by West (one of the major legal publishers) and the subsequent brouhaha. Public relations people, take note.

In other happenings, the Open Book Alliance is solidifying against Google Books. This should be interesting.

The World Oral Literature Project's goal is to keep "dying" languages alive digitally for future generations. Chants, songs and poems are all included in the repository.

In other history-related links, you can take a virtual tour of New York City's obelisks, and if you're in California you can taste beer brewed from 45-million-year-old yeast!

Tomorrow brings links from others. Stay tuned.
