Today, the city where I work is on pins and needles, as it’s the deciding Game 5. Later on, you will hear either cheers or disgusted boos from this quarter.

In work-related news, however…it’s also Ohio Library Snapshot Week! Take a photo and post it to the Flickr pool, and see what fellow Ohio librarians are doing.

The powers that be at the New York Public Library have changed their minds about their new storage plan, after some protests by the people.

Color photographs of the Korean War are pretty rare; a collection showing daily life at a prison camp is even rarer. More photos available at the gallery.

The 1940 U.S. Census has been digitized completely (in record time, hooray for crowdsourcing); here are interesting census facts! (I don’t understand how history can be boring. Censuses are fascinating.)

Tomorrow: links from others! Also, the above-mentioned cheers or boos.
