I am reviving the weekly webliography in which I summarize in a single post the “dogeared items from the web” listed in the sidebar. Dogeared from the web, March 1-6, 2009:
- Obama Questions Constitutionality of Copyright Fines. Okay, so this isn’t about copyright and libraries but I am very glad to see the Executive beginning to question the ridiculous structure of our current copyright laws. [via tgdaily.com]
- Before and After: Barren Attic to Programmer’s Paradise. Again, I am invoking the commonplacing nature of this site and giving something completely unrelated to theological libraries. But who among us has no interest in reclaiming dead space to increase productivity? [via Lifehacker.com]
- Compile Wikipedia Articles and Publish as a Book. This page shows you how to create a book from Wikipedia articles in three steps. Books can be created in PDF form or ordered for printing on the PediaPress website.
- Zotero Library to RSS Feed and Anatomy of the Zotero Library to RSS Feed Pipe. A very cool development concerning the Zotero citation management plugin for Firefox. [via the Disruptive Library Technology Jester]
- Twenty-nine reports about the future of academic libraries as compiled by John Dupuis, Head of the Steacie Science & Engineering Library at York University in Toronto. [HT: iLibrarian]
- LibriVox now has the free audio to Martin Luther’s Large Catechism. I have not personally listened to this particular recording so please let me know what you think.
- An interesting idea for a reference kiosk using Skype. [HT: Digital Reference]
- Resisting the Kindle – The Atlantic (March 2, 2009) and In Defense of the Kindle – The Atlantic (March 5, 2009). Very good reading. I gave my two cents about these articles here.
