GLAM - Trove (Archived Aussie News)




GLAM is an acronym for Galleries, Libraries, Archives and Museums. It also incorporates other cultural institutions such as theatres, zoos, botanical gardens, public broadcasters etc. (Wikimedia Outreach)

While studying Information Science, I realised that I come across many interesting resources that some people may not know about. I will be sharing some of these on a regular basis, to spread the GLAM knowledge.

This week I will share Trove which is a project of The National Library of Australia.

Goodbye Google Reader - Updated with INSTRUCTIONS!

Some people hate change, but it's better to look at change as an opportunity for growth. Google reader will no longer be available from July 2013, but that gives us plenty of time for a good clean out of our news feeds and subscriptions.

Firstly, Google has provided this handy guide for how you can download your feed data. Prior to this announcement, how many of us even bothered to back-up a list of who we were following anyway? So it's a good opportunity not to lose touch with those feeds you adore.

Now she is older Jigglypuff spends a lot of time sleeping. She likes to sneak into the guest room and sleep like here and below. She likes to reassert her authority after someone  has used "her" bed.

♥ Books, Crafts & Pretty Things Blog: ♥ Media Kit

My daughter Jessi from Jessi in Wonderland decided to help me do my media kit. 
It can be seen on my Media Kit page.  
I may be her go to person for tech support, 
but she is definitely my person for colour and style. 
I love how it turned out.

D. M. Yates and I have been following each other's blogs for a while now, so when she told me her book was published I was so excited for her, sending her baby out into the world. She asked me if I would review her book, but life has been crazy, so sorry this has taken a little while. When I got a Kindle voucher for my birthday, Donna's book was at the top of my list. The thing is, once I started reading I read it in a few days, because I couldn't put it down. So here's my review:
