My first photographic credit

I am thrilled to have my first photograph credit.

To see more of the photographs I took at TU Delft Architecture Library, have a look at my set on Flickr.

Another post about people using images and removing the metadata

I have written about this before, and it tends to bring a wry smile rather than any other reaction now, when it happens to me.

I came across this by accident 

which looks  very similar to this

 It was nice to see the photograph being used, and it is great to see the Garage Sale Trail being promoted, so all is good.

Adopt a Book at the British Library

Adopt a Book at the British Library helps fund conservation work.  They have just added some Gothic titles, to tie in with a celebration of 250 years of Gothic writing - Terror and wonder (exhibition opening soon). I really like this as a way of helping provide funding for a library, and I like the way the British Library is thinking about it, including having a blog post about one of the conservators - see Meet adopt a book conservator Rick Brown.

You could also think about supporting this for All hallows read, as it is giving a book, but just a bit differently.

Also think about giving a book for All hallows read - as reading horror is important. And think about how you promote reading horror this October, at your library.

living library...gardens and information

Eastern Counties Regional Library in Nova Scotia, Canada has community gardens at six of their libraries.  Each garden is run differently, depending on the community.  There are very deliberate links to information provision as part of this garden and library connection.
