Dec. 23 always seems like such a rush–literally. Rushing to the store for that last-minute gift. Rushing to the airport to catch your flight to grandma’s. Rushing to clean the house, pick up groceries and prepare the components of your family’s turkey (or ham or tofurkey) dinner.
In that spirit, before everyone rushes off, I wanted to provide a smattering of links:
The Law Library of Congress “elves” have been hard at work all year, making improvements to the THOMAS online legislative information website. They recently blogged about the latest upgrades.
This week we announced all of the Library’s currently scheduled public events for January through April 2011.
The Chronicling America website of fully text-searchable newspapers has added an impressive 440,000 pages to its inventory, bringing the total to more than 3.1 million pages from 414 titles published between 1860 and 1922 in 22 states and the District of Columbia.
Jane Gilchrist, coordinator of the Library’s Young Readers Center, recently penned a piece for the Huffington Post about the Library’s efforts to promote lifelong literacy.
And don’t forget, we will have modified operating hours during the holidays.
I was thinking about including an even dozen links, a la “The Twelve Days of Christmas,” but, well … I gotta rush off! Happy Holidays, everyone!
