Libraries have issues - did you know?

"Many of the current issues facing libraries revolve around the central theme of technology. Technology affects what we do, how we do things, and what our users expect from us as gateways to information. Two labels that arise in this discussion are Web 2.0 and Library 2.0. . . ."

This is a post I found in the HigherEd Blog, April 13th. Kind of interesting.

Creative Commons

Creative Commons is a nonprofit organization that offers flexible copyright licenses for creative works.

Creative Commons licenses provide a flexible range of protections and freedoms for authors, artists, and educators. They have built upon the "all rights reserved" concept of traditional copyright to offer a voluntary "some rights reserved" approach. They're a nonprofit organization. All of their tools are free.

I have not explored it fully, but it looks pretty cool.
