Libraries in Second Life By 2007, there were more than 40 libraries in Second Life and the number is increasing.[1] Many of those libraries can be found in Cybrary City,[2] part of the information archipelago on Second Life. This place was built for libraries to set up their virtual services and for displaying their resources. Libraries can provide their services while also learning new skills for 21st-century librarianship.

The Great Geek Manual » The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries I make no secret of the fact that I’m a hardcore bibliophile, but we’re a common enough lot these day. And the one sight that always makes me linger over a webpage is rows and rows of neatly organized books. So, in an effort to draw more like-minded read here to my little blog, I decided to round-up a gallery of photos of some of the most beautiful libraries I’ve ever seen photos of. Enjoy. If you enjoy this gallery, make sure you check out our other list of The United States’ Most Beautiful Libraries!

ChangeThis :: ChangeThis Types of Filing System - Resources - KolorKode There are many different configurations to consider when looking at your filing system. Your decision as to what works best for you should ultimately be based on what it is you are filing, how many files you have and how many sub-categories your system needs to be broken down in to. Detailed below are the most common types of filing systems and methods. Alphabetical Filing – Colour by letter This is the most popular way to file, mainly because people tend to be comfortable thinking about names. The most basic and possibly most common use of this system is the medical system. The ABGOR system was invented by the founder of KolorKode in the early 1980s.
