Sources of information come and go in the library.  Reliable print sources are replaced by their on-line versions.  Less and less is available in print.  In fact, users of Morningstar will be sad to learn that by the end of the year, it will no longer be available in print in its award winning (yes, there really are awards for binders) binder.

"The world of libraries is changing, and we have to change with it." Anthony W. Marx, President of the New York Public Library

Remember when in order to do a paper for school, you had to come into the library for the information?  Remember running in before the library closed on Sunday night (yes, we used to be open until 8:00 on Sundays during the school year) and feverishly photocopying from the reference books?  As a librarian for many years, I helped many a panic-stricken student who was desperately trying to piece together enough information to complete the assignment while the angry parent hissed "I told you not to wait until the last minute..." Well, they did and we helped them the best we could.

What are your New Year's resolutions?  Many people use the new year as a clean slate to embark on all kinds of self-improvement projects.  Losing weight, quitting smoking, exercising more, learning a new language...Hey, stop, we can help you with the last one (actually the library can help with all of them, but let's concentrate on learning a new language).  We have a great on-line language learning product called Mango Languages.  When Rosetta Stone stopped selling its on-line database to libraries, we scrambled to find a suitable replacement, and we found Mango.  Their program is fun, effective and easy.  You'll have the choice of Mango Basic, which covers 49 languages, including Farsi, Korean, Mandarin and Croatian, as well as ESL courses for specific language speakers.  Mango Complete.
