Welcome to The Silverfish Newsletter Blog

Welcome, iSchoolers. Come on in; have a look around. We're still working out the kinks so kick the tires, slam the doors and then leave comments and ideas below. With you in mind, dear readers and contributors, we started the blog to cut down on the wait time between issues. Now we can get your stuff out and available to peruse toot sweet--within 48 hours. So send us a contribution or two.

Scroll down to read (and see photos) about an iSchooler's adventures helping to bring collection management to a small school in The Gambia, an opinion column on hitting mid-winter ALA convention only to be surprised and a little bummed by memories of a one-time career selling ink cartridges, a comparison of free online music recommendation sites, tons of books and music reviews and more. Go ahead, sign up for RSS.

Access The Silverfish, website edition, here: Silverfish web site. By the way, The Silverfish's web site archives are currently unavailable but will be back from vacation soon!

Elections for next year's Silverfish officers are coming up. Here's what's available: Editor, Web Guru, Marketing Director. Want to be worshipped by clingy fans, eat breakfast with the U.S. President weekly, wake daily to huge, overflowing gift baskets? Well, then. Any one these positions is the job for you! More info soon.

If you prefer email, send The Silverfish, both editions, your news: thesilverfish@gmail.com. (Forget the press releases--we want the story from your own unique perspective!)

Thanks for stopping by.

Bottoms up,
