And the Livin' Is Easy ...
by Dick Kaser
We had fun putting together this summertime issue of Computers in Libraries. After all, isn’t that what you’re supposed to do in the summer—have some fun? But it’s also great to say—at the end of a long summer—that you’ve accomplished something that was on your to-do list for way too long. If you’re looking for inspiration on what you might do with all that “extra time” you have on your hands during these lazy, crazy dog days, take some cues from the authors in this issue:
- Read up on something
- Fix something that’s broken
- Test drive a new software package
- Hook up a new machine
- Iron out those kinks in your workflow
- Get ready to launch something new, come fall
There are two things in this issue that I want to note in particular. Thanks to our intrepid staff writer, Celeste Peterson-Sloss, this issue includes an expanded reading list for those of you who would like to focus on professional development this summer. And check out the advice from the world-traveling Marshall Breeding, who shares his tips for taking your gear with you on the road.
See you in September.
