    Have you ever done an article on search engine alternatives to Google?

    I have created such a resource aimed at high school and community college students and faculty. It’s called Infotopia, and is located here :

    Infotopia indexes only academic web sites selected by educators and consortia.

    Hi Peter, Janie, Karen, Robert, Marie, April, Amy, Emily, Cynthia, John, and Tyler,
    I recently learned about your blog award at Salem Press for Library Garden. First of all, Congratulations!
    Secondly, I wanted to let you know about Coloring Page Tuesdays. I create a new coloring page every week for teachers, librarians, booksellers and parents to enjoy with their kids (and have for almost three years now). This past week I created a “Save the Library” themed coloring page at the request of a New York librarian who is about to lose her job through the upcoming closings and layoffs there. You can see her letter and my coloring page on my blog at and my entire Coloring Page Tuesday collection (with an entire section dedicated to reading-themed images) at .
    As one of the premier blogs reaching librarians – I hope you’ll help spread the word. Maybe, maybe it will do some good.
    Sincerely,
    e
    Children’s Book Author/Illustrator

    News Release for
    Libraries For Democracy
    Starting July 4, 2011, libraries and the general public now have a new information resource with the mission of forging a stronger American democracy by helping citizens to be better-informed and more civically active. The resource is the website Libraries For Democracy (LFD), http://www.LibrariesForDemocracy.com. LFD was created by two Texas public librarians, Michael Baldwin and Adam Wright. LFD is a membership website for libraries and librarians. It allows member librarians to gain access to and provide content for democracy and social issues programming for libraries.
    LFD is also a free information site for the public. It provides news stories and links to democracy/social issues-related information resources that have been vetted by LFD as providing relevant, useful information. LFD will also provide interactive content such as a survey question of the week on an important current issue. Responders to the survey will have their answers and comments made available to their state and federal elected officials as indicated by the responders’ zip codes. The website also features tools for users to locate their elected representatives and makes it easy to contact them and to follow their legislative actions.
    Another interactive LFD feature is Help Yourself! By following simple step-by-step instructions, users will be able to quickly do something that will save them time, money, or frustration. For example, the first Help Yourself item is how to sign up for the federal Telemarketing Don’t Call List. LFD makes it simple to do it quickly and without hassle. These Help Yourself items will be archived for later access as well.
    The LFD website will feature a Graph of the Week that presents important social data in the form of an easy to understand graph with commentary by professional social scientists. Interactive games, graphics, and puzzles that relate information on democracy and social issues will also be featured on the LFD website. These are just some of the innovative features that LFD hopes will make the website interesting and useful to the public.
    Anyone can join LFD for only $25 per year. During the first year, a lifetime membership is available for only $100. Libraries and organizations can join for $25 — $100, depending on population served. A Library member will receive a certificate declaring it an American Democracy Center, an icon link to the LFD website, freebies and discounts on products and services, and access to exclusive professional information resources.
    The aim of librarian memberships in LFD is to create a network of thousands of librarians who will supply information and ideas to each other. LFD will organize the information and make it available to members. LFD will provide encouragement for librarians to create democracy/social issues-related programming in their libraries. Any type of library and librarian can become an LFD member. Because we’ve just gotten started and there’s just the two of us, our website is still a little rough around the edges and is definitely a work in progress. Please consider joining LFD and help us grow into a powerful service to libraries and to American democracy.
    Michael Baldwin and Adam Wright are the founding partners of LFD. Wright is Executive Director of North Texas Library Partners and an expert in IT security. Baldwin is Director of the Benbrook, Texas, Public Library, and is also a former teacher of American Government. He has published several professional articles advocating that libraries should become democracy centers and should make it one of their primary roles to inform the public for responsible citizenship and civic engagement. That is what Libraries For Democracy hopes to accomplish.
