Quote for the week:
"Independent presses are the mainstream. The work they publish
is not from the margins of the reading public but from its center."
Homepage of the week: Marc Lippman
From the web site:
"this is the place where all of your made up words, slang, webspeak and
colloquialisms become part of the dictionary as well. we take the words you
use everyday, but aren't in the dictionary, and put them into ours. all you
have to is submit them. you'll even get credit and a link to your website
(if you've got one). help us grow our dictionary by sending us your entries
now! everyday more entries are added, so check back often."
While still small (under 1500 words at last check) this site could turn
out to be a useful reference source for public librarians needing the
definitions of very current slang terms.
2. Brief in support of freelance writers against publishers
TWO ACADEMIC-LIBRARY GROUPS filed a joint brief on Friday in
support of freelance writers who are fighting the nation's
biggest news publishers in a lawsuit before the U.S. Supreme Court.

5. Futurelib - discussion group for library education
This is a group for future librarians and other students interested in
libraries and information to discuss the implications of profound changes
in library and information work. Our professional world is
affected, and we in turn are going to be helping to shape that world in
various ways. Because it's a complicated and evolving
situation, it seems some dialogue is in order...
A key question to address: What should the priorities of a library
education be? (how much specialization, how much technology
education, how much project work, how much traditional library science
We hope that this dialogue can take place among students at different
institutions...we are guessing that we are not alone in trying to find our
way through a curriculum and professional world in flux.
Whether you espouse "conservative" or renegade views on these
issues, feel free to speak your mind, as long the dialogue remains
respectful and focused on the issues.

"The news you need, whether you know it or not."
Great news links from alternative perspectives. A great site to
check every week when you have extra time to read.
Here is the amusing disclaimer, from the site:
Unknown News is intended for an audience that's mentally awake.
If you prefer a lazy intellectual snooze...
If you're a true believer in anything...
If you're easily offended by foul language, sarcasm, or honesty...
If you're troubled by sexual, counterculture, or politically unpopular
information or illustrations...
Or if you're accustomed to being treated as a child...

- A Search Engine for Bookworms
Wow, what an engine. Allreaders (http://www.allreaders.com)
allows you to search for book information through several
different elements, including plot, main character, main
adversary, plotelements, etc.
The site divides the books into several genres (literature,
sci-fi, romance, etc.). The site covers several authors but
it's not comprehensive. You can list the authors in each
author or go straight to the search form. The search form
for the detailed search asks a number of questions about a
book, including plot points, etc. When you use the detailed
search form, a lot of your choices will cause the page to
reload. Don't worry about that. For example, you may choose
an "animal story" plot point. Once you've chosen that, the
page will reload and give you more options (in this case,
you'll be able to specify what kind of animal.)
You can answer as many or as few questions as you like in
the detailed search. The search results page will give you
book name, author name, and number of matches. Click on a
book name and you'll be taken to the book summary pages. The
summary pages contain book review summaries, and summary
details (basically information about the book presented in
the same way as the detailed search form requests it.) The
elements that match your search are highlighted.
At the bottom of the page are the top ten books in the
AllReaders search engine that match the summarized book's
characteristics. I was tickled to see that Atlas Shrugged
was such a close match to Alice in Wonderland. Who knew?
The detailed search form will seem overwhelming at first,
but it's worth the time to play with it and see what you can
get out of it. Maybe some new reading recommendations. Worth

10. Redesign The Data Dump
As the author of 1989's Information Anxiety proves again, "information
architecture" still has a long way to go.
November 28, 2000 issue of Business 2.0
Richard Saul Wurman
"Information was once a sought-after and treasured commodity like a fine
wine. Now, it's regarded more like crabgrass, something to be kept at bay.
When Information Anxiety was published in 1989, the cry was: less data,
more information. But more than a dozen years of exploding quantities of
information have elevated us to a higher level. How can we find what we
want and tune out the rest?"
I read this article, which is an excerpt from Wurman's new book,
_Information Anxiety 2_, and I thought it was really quite good.
I will probably read the book. -Rory
11. Letter on ALA choice of boycotted hotel for conference headquarters
February 14, 2001
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
You may be aware that the American Library Association has chosen
to use the San Francisco Marriott (Moscone Center, downtown) as
its headquarters hotel for the upcoming conference in June. The
ALA Executive Board is aware that they may be forcing you to
cross picket lines and patronize corporate lawbreakers, even
though they were fully aware of the situation when they signed
their contract with the hotel back in 1997. This was done after
we had demonstrated at the hotel during the ALA convention that
We are asking for your help in pressuring ALA to move its
headquarters to another hotel and cancel all events held there.
The San Francisco Marriott is the site of the largest and longest
running labor dispute in the city. In 1980, when Marriott was
allowed to develop this hotel on city land, one of the city's major
conditions was that Marriott would not actively oppose unionization.
However, in 1989 when the hotel opened, Marriott reneged on that
Nevertheless, in 1996, a majority of Marriott employees chose the
union. Since then, over 120 negotiation sessions have taken place.
Months of escalating and continuous actions culminated in a 2-day
strike in July 2000. There are regular and ongoing demonstrations.
In addition, the National Labor Relations Board, an agency of the
Federal Government, is prosecuting Marriott for just under 100
labor law violations including:
- illegally firing workers supportive of the union
- discriminatorily denying wage and benefit increases to
employees represented by the union
- bargaining in "bad faith"
This past Labor Day, 800 Marriott workers and community supporters,
joined by religious and community leaders, demonstrated outside Marriott
to launch the boycott. Mayor Willie Brown, members of the San Francisco
Board of Supervisors, President Pro Tem of the California State Senate
John Burton, California State Assembly member Carole Migden, and Assembly
Majority Leader Kevin Shelley, were there to publicly endorse the
A number of statements about the Marriott labor dispute and
boycott were incorrect in the ALA fact sheet. They are as follows:
- ALA factsheet: There is NO ongoing strike against the
Marriott: a two day workstoppage last summer was not well supported
by the restaurant employees.
Local 2: The Hotel Employees and Restaurant Employees Union
represents 925 room cleaners, dishwashers, bellmen, phone
operators, and room service workers in addition to restaurant
workers at the Marriott. During the two-day strike last July,
over 75 percent of Marriott workers participated. Each and every
day there is an ongoing boycott against Marriott endorsed by the
Mayor Willie Brown and members of the SF Board of Supervisors.
- ALA: Many of these (Unfair Labor Practices) have been
dismissed by the National Labor Relations Board. There has been
no finding by the NLRB that Marriott has acted unlawfully.
Local 2: The NLRB's prosecution of the Marriott was ready to
go to trial January 29, 2001. Over 80 workers are prepared to testify
on almost 100 separate violations of the law. Marriott's lawyers
responded by filing motions to delay the trial. The NLRB, a branch
of the Federal Government, is seeking the most extreme penalty
allowed by law.
The intermittent picketing usually occurs for an hour to an hour
and one-half on Thursdays and/or Fridays. Last Sunday and Monday,
February 4th and 5th, over 1300 people composed of Marriott
workers, hotel workers from throughout the city, and community
supporters demonstrated in front the Marriott continuously from 6
a.m. to 10 p.m. both days.
3. ALA: Marriott representatives have informed ALA that they hope
to have a signed union contract before June.
Local 2: Marriott's behavior shows no indication that they
are interested in signing a contract.
4. ALA: Due to the size of ALA conferences, they can only be held
in a limited number of cities, and the hotels and convention
centers in these cities are subject to union action at any time.
Local 2: In San Francisco, virtually all large hotels are
under a five-year union contract until August 2004 and the union
is prohibited from picketing or striking until the contract expires.
The only hotel you will find prone to strikes or picketing during
the ALA convention is at the Moscone Center Marriott.
Join us in pressuring ALA to fix their error and make it possible
for all of us to attend ALA conference sessions without crossing
a picket line.

Hi Rodney et. al,
One example I use when talking about evaluating websites is "The Problem of
the Gas Chambers" at http://ihr.org/leaflets/gaschambers.html
I use this as the conclusion of my talk because it LOOKS, on the surface,
like a trustworthy page. Most students don't know what the Institute For
Historical Review is, and it sounds like a scholarly organization. The
page offers a link to the author's credentials, which include education at
the Sorbonne, and an associate professorship at the University of Lyon. It
also has an extensive bibliography/notes section.
So I ask student to evaluate it, and they say it looks really good. Then
we look closer. We look at the fact that most of the other articles cited
in the notes are ALSO published by the Institute for Historical Review, and
we talk about what this means. Sometimes I have someone check Ulrich's to
see whether the Journal of Historical Review is a refereed journal. (Of
course, it isn't). Then we talk about what it means for the author to be "
Europe's leading Holocaust revisionist scholar" and so on. It has good
shock value as a warning that above all they need to learn to think
critically. I also like to use it because I can manipulate a Google
search to spit it out when I hit the "I'm feeling lucky" button. ("gas
chambers" historical auschwitz--pulls it up right now)

From: "Norem, Monica" <Monica.Norem[at]nhmccd.edu>
Since Web page information is frequently not all good or all bad, I like to
have students discuss different viewpoints on a topic using several Web
pages. For an initial discussion, I found three different Web sites on the
same topic that expressed different "sides" of an issue - some facts, some
opinion, some of both. I disagree with the tactic of taking students to
bogus sites posted to prove the existence of erroneous Web sites that look
legitimate or authoritative. I prefer real world examples that students may
encounter in their research. First I have them simply look at the titles and
URLs (such as those listed below) to anticipate what might be found on the
Web page. Then we check the actual Web page to see if we were correct. This
tactic worked really well during the presidential campaign when I listed a
Washington Post article on George W. Bush along with his official Web site
and an anti-Bush site that had an official-looking URL.

Environmental Sustainability Index (ESI) [.pdf, Excel, PowerPoint]
A collaboration among the World Economic Forum's Global Leaders for
Tomorrow Environment Task Force, The Yale Center for Environmental
Law and Policy, and the Columbia University Center for International
Earth Science Information Network (CIESIN), the Environmental
Sustainability Index (ESI) "is a measure of overall progress towards
environmental sustainability, developed for 122 countries." The ESI
is based on 22 core "indicators," each of which combines two to six
variables for a total of 67 underlying variables. The idea is to
create cross-national comparisons of environmental progress as part
of an effort to foster a more analytically driven approach to
environmental decision-making. The top-ranked nations were Finland,
Norway, and Canada, with the US coming in at number eleven and the UK
placing sixteenth. Visitors can view the rankings and download the
full text of the 225-page report and a Powerpoint Presentation at the
site. A spreadsheet of the ESI is promised for the near future. [MD

16. Press Freedom Conference and Alternative Media Exposition
February 1, 2001
Dear Real News Providers and Media Activists,
You are part of a global movement to free the media by building alternative
news and information services. Please join us in San Francisco on April
27-29, 2001, for the Press Freedom Conference and Alternative News Media
Exposition. We are celebrating "Real News" and building interconnections
for sharing news with each other in the expansion of progressive
For the past several years a new media democracy movement has emerged in
the United States. Media activists have gathered for Media Democracy
Congresses (SF 96 & NY 97), Athens Media Conference (98), Fordham Press
Freedom Conference (Spring 2000), and the IndyMedia Conference in Vermont
(Fall 2000). A key theme emerging from these conferences has been the
general understanding that we need to rebuild media news systems from the
grassroots up and interlink with each other in sharing the news.
In honor of our 25th anniversary, Project Censored is co-hosting this
national gathering of alternative news organizations and media activists at
San Francisco State University (SFSU). Media activists, alternative news
publications, independent radio & TV are invited to join together for an
Alternative News Media Exposition sharing 15,000 sq. ft. of floor space in
the SFSU gymnasium complex. (150 display areas are available) Regional
publicity through KPFA and the San Francisco Bay Guardian will bring
thousands of Bay Area residents to intermix and connect with Real News
non-corporate media organizations/activist groups.
Exhibitors may bring samples to distribute or sell, and give out
information on their organizations/publications. The Exposition has the
potential to be a fund raising event for each of us.
Initial sponsors for The Alternative News Media Exposition and Press
Freedom Conference are Project Censored, KPFA, San Francisco Bay Guardian,
Journalism Department SFSU, Institute for Holistic Healing SFSU, Media
Alliance, Independent Press Association, Free Speech TV, Mediachannel, and
In These Times. Other Co-sponsors and under-writers are welcomed. Please
register by March 5th in order to be included in the public announcements

Real News is media information that contributes to the lives and
socio-political understandings of working people. Real News informs,
balances, and awakens the less powerful in society. Real news empowers and
keeps key segments of working people in America tuned in, informed and
active. Real News builds movements for social change. It keeps the 10-15%
of us-those who as activists seek to make radical (root) changes in
society-connected, aware and heart centered. It keeps us aware of our power
and our collective ability to influence positive change. Real News
organizes movement towards betterment, shapes policy for equality. Real
News speaks truth to power and challenges the hegemonic top-down corporate
entertainment news systems.
Every day Real News is published in hundreds of non-corporate alternative
newsmagazines, local weeklys, zines, and independent newspapers around the
globe. In the past year, Real News has appeared on Indymedia web sites in
over 30 cities in the U.S. as well as in over a dozen other countries. Real
News is annually honored by Sonoma State University's Project Censored,
where the Top 25 Real News stories not covered by the corporate media are
published in the book "Censored: the News That Didn't Make the News."
We have just worked out our a schedule of times for the Conference and
Public presentations. The rooms seat 300 each and will run concurrently.
The public room is open to all and the conference room will be open to
media activists, writers, ect who actually registered for the conference
portion of the Expo. Both are located in the Gym complex of San Francisco
State University. The Exposition (150 booths) will be in the two main gyms
in the same building. We will also have four classrooms for meetings, films
and smaller presentations. I have not sloted any particular groups into
times yet. So all times are still available.

In case you're feeling guilty about not supporting Library Juice with a cash
donation, don't worry: you're in good company. The vast majority of Library
Juice readers don't send money, and publication costs are more than covered
by those who do. In fact, I have a surplus that I may use to buy
republication rights to a copyright protected story or two. Don't be
"guilted out" by the plea for donations below. Unlike some popular sites
with higher "production values" and higher traffic, Library Juice is not
facing austerity measures or eviction from its server space. Enjoy Library
Juice guilt-free! Donate only if you feel like it.
