Library school graduates know that you run across mentions of Vannevar Bush in the oddest places. Today it’s an article on information overload which also invokes T.S. Eliot, Gertrude Stein, Marshall McLuhan, and more.

Which Book offers a different way of finding something to read. I tried a few sliders and was amused to find that it recommended a book of poetry by Wislawa Szymborska that I already own. It must be doing something right!

Libraries usually match up with cats, but in one particular case, an owl has received a library card.

In September, an e-forum will take place on “Sustainable Development Goals: The Impact of Access to Information on our Societies.” It’s part of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals initiative, and looks really interesting.
