This is a resend with some minor corrections regarding Shawn Livingston's excellent post and a sincere apology to her on the mix up! - JD

Welcome to Wednesday! Today's newsfeeds were once again delightfully all over the place as far as topics and trends go. Days like today make curating both difficult and enjoyable at the same time. It is kind of like being a kid in candy shop, only without the resultant tummy ache from over indulgence! Nonetheless, choices had to be made and it is my hope you will enjoy the lineup I have for you today. Go ahead, indulge yourselves a little!

  • Over at RIPS Law Librarian Blog, Shawn Friend gives us a first-hand account of his library's foray into servicing outside the box. Her entry, Taking on a Nontraditional Reference Duty, reminds us that creativity is often the key to vitality and longevity of our own libraries. When it comes to nontrditional roles for librarians, she writes "Although we have had to adjust some of our reference practices to accommodate this new area of assistance, it has been rewarding, both in knowing that we are helping our students with a significant task and having more students come into the library." It's an example from which we all can learn!
  • In The Case for 3D Printing, Jason Griffey also challenges our notions of traditional library services. In arguing that there is a place for 3D printers in the librarr he says, "While we are best known as information providers, that has never been all we are. A library was often the first place where someone could go to touch a computer. A library was one of the places where many Americans first saw the internet." Let's face it, part of what makes libraries so vital and so cool is that we are on the cutting edge! Don't miss his article on the American Libraries Magazine blog.
  • Our colleagues at Social Times take a look at the latest trend in social media monitoring and its implications for us as consumers. Be sure to read When Social Monitoring Goes Local, Privacy Concerns Grow.
  • And finally, our friends at LAC Group give us a striking example of the importance of disaster preparedness. Whether it's getting ready for your first disaster or dealing with your third, being prepared to deal with the aftermath is key. Learn about Tulane's efforts at Storms, Flooding & Fires: Dealing with Library Disaster at Tulane University.
