More of this and That

YALSA has announced the 2010 Finalists for the William Cl Morris YA Debut Award which honours first-time authors writing for teens.  Learn more about this and the YALSA book trailer contest for teens over at the readergirlz blog.  More on book trailers:

Seth Godin has written some powerful words about The Future of the Library this week and Joyce Valenza has posted her response: Seth Godin and Mike Eisenberg and me on the Future of the Library.  I have posted a link to Joyce's blog in my local teacher librarian's forum along with a few questions.  What have you done lately to retool yourself?  This is critical!  Pass it on to your teacher librarian or if you are a TL show it to your principal and engage them in a conversation about change.

MakeUseOf has released a Guidebook to Internet Searching free to download.
