Site of the Month: Queens Borough Public Library

Submitted by Leo Klein on Sat, 12/2/06 (4:57pm)

QueensLibrary.org - Continue to Complete Review...

The Queens Borough Library Website is so good that it made me want to do this review. It practically cried out for it. The developers have done a fantastic job. They've taken features we routinely find on other sites -- features like creating accounts, specifying preferences and grouping information -- and applied them to a library context.

In so doing, they've upped the standard of what a library website can do -- and what the public can expect from one. They've also provided a good model for other libraries to follow.

GAO SealCompetition in the area of Internet Service Providers? Fugeddaboutit!

That's basically the conclusion of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) in its new report entitled, "FCC Needs to Improve Its Ability to Monitor and Determine the Extent of Competition in Dedicated Access Services".

Drupal 5.0 Beta

Submitted by Leo Klein on Fri, 12/1/06 (12:02am)

DrupaliconI've been doodling around with the latest beta of Drupal 5.0.

I was thinking of implementing it here but it's just not far enough along for me to use. Also, most of the modules, which are the true glory of Drupal, haven't been updated yet. (This site's running 4.7.)

Hello World

Submitted by Leo Klein on Wed, 11/29/06 (10:13pm)

Welcome to my blog!

This is the personal/professional blog of Leo Robert Klein, writer, designer and web developer living in the great city of Chicago.

I'm also a Librarian -- hence the name of the blog.

This will be where I set down my thoughts on webdesign, librarianship, developments in technology -- and whatever else strikes my fancy. "Gott und die Welt" as the Germans say.

So sit down and make yourself comfortable. It's going to be one hell of a ride.
