Welcome to new members!/Handheld headlines/Avantgo news

Welcome to all new members of the handheld librarians news group! If you would like
to post to the blog as well as the newsgroup at the same time,
email me
and I will send you an invitation to post to the blog. To post, you must follow
the link in the e-mail. For those of you who use handhelds in the library, and would like to
have your link posted on the right of handheld libraries, please send the link to me,
and I will add it. If you have news, and would like me to post it, ,
just send it to me.


For those of you new to blogging, I recommend Peter Scott's
Library Weblogs
and his Complete Guide to Weblogs.
I did not know what a web log was until 3 months ago! This site is an attempt to combine a community
blog, newsfeed, and newsgroup and to create a portal of information about handhelds and libraries. We have
been up since February 1, 2002.

The Shifted Librarian is an excellent blog by Jenny
Levine which covers many library technology topics and witty commentary too! The address
has been changed to her own domain name, http://www.theshiftedlibrarian.com

Please see this story on avantgo below. This is a concern as some of our hospital departments
depend on avantgo to publish schedules, and other information for residents for their handhelds.
It is also a concern because this was an easy way for libraries to publish information for their
users.
