Like so many blogs, ours got started as a result of a conversation that was pretty much summed up by "we really should be doing this" back in November. Tim, who has his own personal blog, whipped up a basic site in about the time it takes to watch an episode of Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog [ which is really funny , just in case you don't know about it ]. And there it has sat since then, with both Tim and I either too busy to do anything with it or just to unmotivated to be creative.
Fast forward to today. We had a big problem with access to our database subscriptions that isn't quite fixed yet. And I thought "geez - why don't we have a blog to let folks know what's going on" - and then did the "oh yeah, we do. Oops..." So the basic idea is this - Tim and I want to use this space to let you know about things that are happening in the Library, new, old, and things yet to be. We don't know how this is going to work or if it will, but like most things, it seemed like a good idea at the time...
