Here's your moment of historical trivia! On this date in 1892, Lizzie Borden was arrested on suspicion of hacking her parents to death. More articles available, thanks to the Library of Congress.

Libraries are doing the search thing wrong, but hopefully will get the future right. (This is pretty much how articles on libraries go these days; half encouraging, half disheartening.)

Remember the Biblioburro? Now it's a documentary on PBS!

Kickstarter project of the week: Contribute to this project of photographing libraries across America. There's also a weblog detailing the adventures along the way.

And finally, something to have a good solid geeky argument about, courtesy of NPR: the top 100 sci-fi/fantasy books. I've read 21 1/2  on the list (I gave up halfway through Cryptonomicon).
