Google+ Social = World Domination?
by Avi Rappoport
Released at the end of June 2011, Google+ is now pretty much a Facebook clone, with some nice bells and whistles, and it has a steep climb ahead before it can even compete. But Google has the deep pockets and the incentive to make this work; the service is being rolled out slowly so there's a cool cachet to join in, and there are a dozen ways that Google+ can be integrated with the rest of Googleverse, advertising, services and hardware, for both consumer and business purposes.

Ebook Developments Were HOT at ALA
by Paula J. Hane
Looking over the program of presentations and panels and at the vendors exhibiting at the recent American Library Association Annual (ALA) conference, it's clear that librarians are focused on embracing the expanding digital world and specifically on providing ebooks as part of library services. Of course, along with that come all the issues and considerations involved: copyright/DRM, rising costs of digital collections, format issues, and the rapidly evolving publishing market. For librarians, it's all about providing enhanced services through the emerging technologies. They had a lot to look at and think about in New Orleans.
