The Indiana University School of Medicine Library is celebrating the launch of InHealthConnect, a free service to help connect the citizens of Indiana to local health services. Check it out at:


We have a list of brand new items available for circulation! Please visit our website at and click on the appropriate link on the left side of the page!


2005 Hurricane Season

We thought our friends in the Southeastern United States had enough to deal with after the hurricanes of 2004, now the 2005 season is upon us and our friends there are definitely needing our help.

While viewing CNN on Sunday I heard a representative from the Insurance Information Institute discuss free software that is available. This software enables users to create and maintain a very good home inventory that can include scanned copies of receipts and digital images of items in your home.

If something drastic were to happen to your home, it is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY to produce a verifyable list of items that were lost or damaged. The software is available for you AT NO COST (get the hint?) at click on the download button at the lower right hand side of the screen and proceed with the download from there.

A few minutes of your time now will save you many months of frustration and heartache later.

By the way. The American Red Cross needs our help to help our fellow citizens during their time of need.

Homework and Report Help Sites

I'm listing sites from time to time that come across the INCOLSA-L listserve.

First out of the gate is

Description from the site: Best of History Web Sites is an award-winning portal (directory of links to other web sites) created for history teachers, students, and general history enthusiasts. BOHWS contains annotated links to over 1000 history web sites as well links to hundreds of quality K-12 history lesson plans, history teacher guides, history activities, history games, history quizzes, and more throughout its pages.


After too long of a hiatus, it is time for us to get back down to business. Summers for Library Directors means having to finish things that didn't get done while school was in session, preparing and finalizing the incoming years budgets and compiling statistics from the previous year to name just a few.

My goal will be to, AT LEAST, post monthly!

all the best
