We're Back

:: Greetings, everyone. Geoff and I have returned from SLA and post-SLA activities in NYC. Thank you for your patience.

:: Somewhat old news, but at the conference, SLA members voted to retain the name, "Special Libraries Association". SLA also appointed Janice Lachance as its new Executive Director.

:: Science has created a site dealing with SARS. Research papers are available as free content, not requiring a subscription to the online version of the journal.

:: The new NASA Technical Report Server has been available to the general public since April 2003. More information is available here.

:: The Internet Resource Catalogue of EEVL recently added its 10,000th record. EEVL is now available through Engineering Village 2.

:: Please see the Federal Communications Commission Release of Data on High-Speed Internet Access, which covers "summary statistics of its latest data on the deployment of high-speed connections to the Internet in the United States", during the period from July-December 2002.

:: Refereed papers from The Twelfth International World Wide Web Conference, 20-24 May 2003, Budapest, are now available.

:: For those of you working in libraries supporting civil engineering, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Civil Engineering Department has created a web site "devoted to providing resources that are intended to advance the use of the strut-and-tie method (STM) in education and design of structural concrete." This is a site that might be worth adding to your resource guide.

:: The Computer History Museum has created a timeline which explores the history of computing from 1945-1990. There is also a fascinating section on People and Pop Culture.
