Google Delivers GoMo: Can You GoMo?
by Richard Oppenheim
The intersection of mobile computing devices and the internet just received GoMo from Google. This Google free application will enable even more volumes of content to flow more smoothly across the intersection. GoMo stands for Google Mobile, which is designed to enhance the readability of websites built for 14" to 23" screen displays on laptops or desktops and now having their content downsized to the 3" to 9" screens of mobile devices. The issue that Google is solving is how to enable websites to be modified so that they are readable on your small screen without having to use touch and scroll to make the pages visible. Small screens are not one size fits all (pun intended) and modifying full-size webpages will increase mobile connectivity.

ProQuest to Digitize NAACP Archives
ProQuest and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) are teaming to digitize the association's archives, bringing one of the most famous records of the civil rights movement to the online world. The collection, which comprises nearly 2 million pages of internal memos, legal briefings, and direct action summaries from national, legal, and branch offices throughout the country, charts NAACP's work and delivers a firsthand view into crucial issues: lynching, school desegregation, discrimination in the military, the criminal justice system, employment, and housing. Preserved on microfilm, it holds the distinction of being the most heavily used collection in the Manuscript Division of the Library of Congress. Now, it will be fully searchable and accessible electronically and available through academic, research, and public library websites as part of ProQuest History Vault, an initiative to digitize historically rich primary sources.
