We’ve got the song, the video…”Michael: “The essays from a ton of cool, smart library folks…”David: “The web site, the buttons, the shirts…”Michael: “The Library 101 Project presentation, oh, and the debut of the Project, which is most of this all wrapped into one!” Library 101: Section I – History (Back to top)What happened that made NOW such a critical, rare time for libraries? Libraries have always done important work and returned value to the communities they serve. As technology changed, we did adapt – for example, we learned some basic business skills, like how to type (7), how to handle ourselves during a conference call (8), and how to create an interesting presentation (9). Library 101: Section II – Present OK – I said we’d need to talk 2.0 tools.

NZ History Online - The Gallipoli campaign Each year on Anzac Day, New Zealanders (and Australians) mark the anniversary of the Gallipoli landings of 25 April 1915. On that day, thousands of young men, far from their homes, stormed the beaches on the Gallipoli Peninsula in what is now Turkey. For eight long months, New Zealand troops, alongside those from Australia, Great Britain and Ireland, France, India, and Newfoundland battled harsh conditions and Ottoman forces desperately fighting to protect their homeland. By the time the campaign ended, more than 130,000 men had died: at least 87,000 Ottoman soldiers and 44,000 Allied soldiers, including more than 8700 Australians. Among the dead were 2779 New Zealanders, about a fifth of all those who had landed on the peninsula. In the wider story of the First World War, the Gallipoli campaign made no large mark.
