The September issue of Computers in Libraries (v.29 no.8) has two articles by GSLIS students: Stephanie Buck, "Libraries in the Cloud: Making a Case for Google and Amazon" (pp.6-10) and Katharine Dunn and Nick Szydlowski, "Web Archiving for the Rest of Us: How to Collect and Manage Websites Using Free and Easy Software" (pp.12-18).
Prof. emeritus James M. Matarazzo, LS'65, published an article, "Survival Lessons for Libraries: Alternate Sourcing," in SEARCHER MAGAZINE, September, pp. 32-39 with Toby Pearlstein, MS, '77. Dr. Matarazzo was a guest on "Eye on Winthrop," on WCATV on September 23 discussing the budget for the Winthrop Public Library, for which he is Chair of the Trustees.
GSLIS student Peter Norman was cited in a CNN article: "'I came into libraries and it wasn't about books,' said Peter Norman, a graduate student in library and information science at Simmons College in Boston who says he's most interested in music and technology. 'Sure I love to read. I read all the time. I read physical books. But I don't have the strange emotional attachment that some people possess.'" http://www.cnn.com/ 2009/TECH/09/04/future.library.technology/index.html.
Congratulations to GSLIS students Winifred Mixon, Miranda Rivers, and Christina M. Thompson, our new Spectrum Scholars. The students will receive a Spectrum grant, a matching grant from Simmons, and a $500 grant from NELA.
