The smorgasbord of stories continues today. It is always interesting when we get a mix of postings that seem to fall all over the topical map. After all, there is a lot going on in our industry and no one ever said that every issue had to have a central theme. Librarianship is what we cover and in all of its fascinating forms and developments. On tap today, we have a look at the openness of American law journals and a very personal look at what happens when you decide to start you library service from scratch. These are two highlights not to be missed.

Open Wide?

In her latest blog entry, the always insightful Sarah Glassmeyer asks, "How Open and Free are US Law Journals?" It's an important question. She writes, "While some people are skeptical about the value of legal scholarship, I tend to believe that there are at least some useful articles out there for the legal world and layman alike. However, this only is possible if people can read and access the content contained within them." We could not agree more. Sarah has done her homework on this problem. What she has found may just surprise you. Check it out.

Square One

Have you ever wished you could scrap your current library set-up and start over with a clean slate? The task sounds herculean for even a small library. Imagine what happens when you do this with a large one! Better yet, don't imagine. Read a firsthand account of what such an undertaking involves and the possibilities it provides. Featured from the Dumpling in a Hanky blog, we offer up: Relaunching a library service. We are not sure if it will give you inspiration or nightmares. However, we do highly recommend this read.
