The Watergate scandal occurred forty (40!) years ago this week, and Bill Lucey, as usual, has a fantastic assortment of links.

A Ray Bradbury museum might appear in Waukegan, Illinois! I had no idea Bradbury had lived there.

In other museum news, the Victoria & Albert Museum presents an exhibition on British design which looks fabulous.

Did you know there was a Major Orchestra Librarians’ Association? Take note!

Less specialized libraries are having a hard time of it. Zadie Smith talks about her childhood library and what’s become of it.

Meanwhile, we’re still trying to get to that magical Library of Everything.

And lastly, something a bit more cheerful: a handy guide to lesser-known proofreading and editing symbols, including such gems as “add more adventure.” Sometimes it’s necessary!
