Glenn Kantz, a librarian in a Swiss Boarding school wrote an article on “patron drive acquisitions” that I find boh fascinating and really something that libraries should consider. In the past, it has often been librarian driven. But if the libraries have books that patrons want, will the libraries be more populated? Now that ebooks and overdrive solutions are coming, doesn't it make sense to take a patron driven model? Should people be able to “vote up” the next acquisition? Fascinating thoughts and I look forward to reading more on this.

Here are the ways that you can print using Google Cloud print. You can print from Chrome when you're signed into your Google account. Lots of ways to print from your Droid device.
You can use your Google account to link the printers on your PC with your Google account using Google Cloud print. This incredibly useful feature can let you go to work on Monday and when you fire up your computer, it will printout the things you want to have printed. (If it works) this is a very cool feature. I'm enabling this today.
