Please take this survey on using blogs for library instruction. (From an OFFCAMP message, posted here with permission)
We would like to invite you to take our survey on using blogs for instruction in libraries. We are presenting a paper at the Off-Campus Library Services Conference in Savannah and would like to include the results in that paper. We have also surveyed our students so it should make for an interesting paper.
Thank you,
Lani Draper

Just a note about the entry for "Library Technology NOW": I checked out this site after seeing it highlighted in the NetWatch section of June 2005 edition of eSchool News. The home site for the eSchool News is: .
"Library Technology NOW" is a new site, covering 'Library technology news and product reviews written by library people for library people'.
With content written by volunteers, the site is funded by The North Texas Regional Library System and the Texas Library Association. Spring 2005's theme includes Public Access Defenses, and links to 3rd party reviews of public access security software. Both might come in handy for that training room security issue you are thinking about.
