Quite some time ago I accidentally posted a copy of "American Libraries
Direct" on this list.  I got requests from some to keep posting it and from
some to not post it because they already got it.  The numbers were about
evenly split.  Some of those that already received it said that it should be
a perk of membership in the American Library Association.  I really did not
like this position because I thought that the more people know about ALA and
libraries in general the better.  This evening I am just getting around to
reading blogs and I found this on "Library Juice."  Now those of you who are
not ALA members can subscribe.  It is an interesting collection of stories
so I hope that you do subscribe.

American Libraries (magazine) more

Two press releases in two days, this one from George Eberhart of ALA…

Hello, Rory–

I wanted to let you know about some important news about American Libraries.

1. Our weekly e-newsletter, American Libraries Direct, is now available to
anyone who wants to sign up for it, not just ALA members. The sign-up form,
as well as the FAQ, is at

2. American Libraries has launched its own blog, AL Inside Scoop,
http://www.al.ala.org/insidescoop/. Editor-in-chief Leonard Kniffel offers
an insider's view of goings-on at ALA headquarters and what hot topics ALA
staffers are talking about in the hallways. Associate Editor Greg Landgraf
offers his perspective from "the lower floors" of what many see as the ALA
ivory tower.

3. Login is no longer required to view the current issue of the American
Libraries print magazine online (in PDF format), or to view the archives,
which date back to the January 2003 issue. Go directly to
alonlineebrary.cfm. First-time viewers will need to install the ebrary
reader to view issues. To download, go to
http://site.ebrary.com/lib/ala/Download. Firefox 3 users installing the
reader for the first time will need a workaround,
http://www.ebrary.com/kb/users/ff3install.jsp, to make the ebrary reader
work with their browser.

Thanks for helping us get the word out!

George M. Eberhart
Editor, American Libraries Direct
