We're back!

Ah! All my emails of last year have been archived. My files are cleaned up. My office is stripped in preparation for moving--if we should ever fill the new Instruction/Technology/Reference Librarian. And I'm ready to begin afresh. If you haven't noticed, the SOUTHcat library catalog has been updated so it is time for all of us to relearn how it works. But let's start the year with some Librarian New Year's kind of websites.

Kathy Jones sent me this website: Earth Calendar
http://www.earthcalendar.net/index.php"The Earth Calendar is a daybook of holidays and celebrations around the world. For the purpose of this web site a 'holiday' is any day that
recognizes a cultural event." By date, country or religion and the phases of the moon.

Now you need a calendar to on which mark up your holidays. Voila! Google Calendar is an online calendar you can maintain and share with your family, friends and work colleagues. Take a tour, then sign in to gmail or register for an account at: http://www.google.com/intl/en/googlecalendar/tour.html.

"I wasted time, and now doth time waste me."- Shakespeare, King Richard II, Act V, Scene V
And a website with tips to help motivate you to get organized this year:
I Need More Time / The Time Manager http://www.ineedmoretime.com/ The site will try to sell you books on organization, but there are a lot of free tips also.

And last, what words NOT to use this year:
The 2007 list from Lake Superior State University of words that you should avoid in the New Year. List of Banished Words. http://www.lssu.edu/banished/current.php
