Upcoming Webcasts

Infopeople has two upcoming webcasts in the Technology Tuesdays series. First up, at noon on February 8, is "Metasearching: Librarians Like Searching, Users Like Finding," presented by Roy Tennant. Roy is returning to Infopeople after an absence of several years, and we are very pleased to have him back, since he has been one of our most popular trainers. In this webcast, Roy will cover the basics of emerging metasearch tools.


Something's new at Google

The Google homepage has a new link! Next time you're looking for something, check out the Local link above the search box. Enter your term in the search box then click on Local, and you'll be taken to a page where you can enter a location beside your search. Then when you click on the Google Search button, you'll get results customized for that location. Useful if you're looking for free wi-fi in Los Angeles, or a good Italian restaurant in Sacramento.

Solutions for big attachments

Ever had a really big file that you needed to send to someone but their email provider wouldn't allow attachments larger than 10MB? Well, a handy solution is here. is a new web-based service that allows you to temporarily store files up to 100MB in size, then send links to people so they can download them. Signing up is quick and free and they offer virus scanning for both sending and receiving. We tried it and it worked great (but you can only send to one person at a time).
