New DVD Releases for January 22nd

We have two new titles for Tuesday, January 22nd.  They are:

Paperboy, The (Matthew McConaughey)

Searching For Sugar Man (A Documentary)

Better Than Google

Goodbye Westlaw! Hello LexisNexis!  The new year brings us an exciting, new database, the LexisNexis Express Library.  For the past six years, we had subscribed to Westlaw due to the fact that it was a great alternative to print.  Instead of shelves and shelves of McKinneys Statutes and U.S. Code Annotated, we could now access them on-line.  Although some people missed the books, most of the lawyers were happy to use Westlaw, something they used in law school and at work.  Recently, LexisNexis decided to produce a product to appeal to the public library market.  It is not only more affordable, it is more comprehensive (laws and cases of all fifty states are included, not just New York) and it can be used by more than one person at a time.  Although the legal portion can only be used in the library, the business and news modules are available remotely.

Getting To Know You: Standalone SF Reads

Well, It's 2013, and the planet still appears to be in one piece. Time for a new blog entry!

Many people will tell you that good things (and bad luck) come in threes. Speculative fiction stories frequently do; the genre has a strong predilection for trilogies.  But many authors don't even stop there-- there are SF series and sagas that run to double-digits and represent decades of writing.  Some writers don't even finish their story arc within their lifetimes (ahem, Robert Jordan), leaving devoted readers to hope for a worthy successor (and copious notes left by the original author) to finish out the series.

New!
