The big news in the law library world (shut up, it is too a world) is that Lexis and Westlaw are going to revamp their services so as to look more like Google. That's the gist of it, anyway. This will be...interesting!

Incidentally, today is Data Privacy Day. Go do something private in its honor.

In more tangible data happenings, the largest book in the world will be part of an exhibit this summer at the British Library, and the Huffington Post lists some of the more gorgeous libraries around the world (with an option for you, the reader, to rate each library's gorgeousity on a scale from 1 to 10).

And lastly, for those of us who are unabashedly geeky students: I found the Open Yale Courses via a post on Metafilter, and am now trying to figure out a way to build some time into my schedule and take the English and history classes I always wished I could!

Tomorrow: Friday! That means links sent in by others -- maybe even you -- so stay tuned.
