Google Gobbles Up Innovative Startup Kifi
by Nancy K. Herther
On July 12, 2016, collaboration software company Kifi announced that its team would be joining Google, but that its services and data would not become part of Google. Kifi's account holders were still able to access Kifi to export their data for several weeks after the announcement, but the company stopped accepting new registrations. So, why would Google acquire a company just to dump its innovative product and hire the entrepreneurs behind it? It turns out that this has become a pattern, not only for Google but also for other Silicon Valley companies.

#Lib4Ham: Public Libraries Discover the Value of Hamilton
by Brandi Scardilli
As Hamilton racks up more and more awards, library staffers have been taking notice. Its cast recording album is available via hoopla, which means libraries using that service can recommend it to patrons. And since the musical is based on a book, library staffers can easily point patrons toward the source material, as well as toward books with related subjects.
