    Social Networks Have Gone to the Books Part 2

    Kim Mattingly In the last installment, I discussed the popularity of social networking, and featured two popular reading/book social networks: GoodReads and Shelfari. Riffle and Fictfact are two other book networking sites that are less popular. Riffle (Rifflebooks.com) Riffle, an alternative to GoodReads, launched in May 2013. I became aware of the site about a month ago, when a co-worker mentioned it to me. She described it as “Pinterest for books.” Of course, I had…

    Evansville’s library

    Savannah Warren I recently made a trip to Evansville and visited their public library. For one of my classes, I needed to compare and contrast two public libraries and I thought I should check theirs out since I was in the neighborhood. I have to admit, theirs was pretty cool. The kids section looked like a playground and was removed from the rest of the library, so the noise coming from it didn’t pollute the…

    IMDb [Internet Movie Database] App Review

    “Who was that guy who played the bad guy in that movie?” My friends ask me questions like this, because they know I’m one of the public library’s “movie guys.” In fact one of my job responsibilities is purchasing new DVDs and Blu-Rays for the library’s collection, so I have to be up on my movies. But I don’t know everything, which is where IMDb comes in. The Internet Movie Database website (www.imdb.com) has been…
