Audio Tours Via Cell Phone

Libraries that have or are contemplating audio tours will be interested in an article appearing on the front page of the Calendar section of today's L.A.Times. The article, For an art tour, press the # key, by Diane Haithman, describes the latest trend in museum audio tours, which is making the tour available via the visitor's cell phone.


We give you the happy winner!

Gates Staying Connected Survey Report

Several years ago, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation gave grants of computer equipment and software to public libraries throughout the United States. The Foundation has maintained an interest in the sustainability of public access computing in libraries, and currently offers grants to support that sustainability through a program called "Staying Connected." The Staying Connected grants are awarded at the state level and can be used, at the discretion of the state library agency, for a variety of purposes, including hardware replacement, training, and technical assistance.
