Introducing “In the news”

The further I get into this blogging project, the more clear it becomes that there are often going to be little stories that I want to feature but that aren’t necessarily worthy of entries in their own right. In light of this, I’ve decided that once I’ve collected a few of these stories, I’ll post them in an “In the news” segment. Here’s the first!

From The Boston Globe

At Simmons College, tomorrow’s librarians are all about tech.

From The Chronicle of Higher Education

From The American Institute of Architects

The Mattapan Branch Library of the Boston Public Library wins a 2011 AIA/ALA Library Building Award.


The Conservation Center for Art works to preserve the work of legendary tattoo artist Norman Collins.
