Letter From the Editor...
Greetings, devotees of all things Information!
We also offer up tales of summer doings: DFWs (directed field work), the ALA convention, a scholarly journey to Amsterdam, websites to check out, as well as info on a new listserv for small fry and teens, and movie and books reviews, including one by Nancy Pearl. Thanks, Nancy!The iSchool community student newsletter has been saddled with the name The Silverfish for 10 years, and we’re ready to retire the nasty, nocturnal insect, at least as our namesake. (BTW, I know many liked the ‘fishy title, and it was with the best of intentions, I’m sure, that it was named for the pest that eats paper, hence, the bane of librarians.) We’re kicking around a few ideas here in the ole cyberfish office, but we want yours. They’re probably better. Oh, and we need a logo, too. There’s cash involved, folks! Don’t hesitate—soon you’ll be freaking out over all the work piling up on your desk/Mac/PC.
We want to hear from or about those who helped out with the Hurricane Katrina rebuilding effort, coinciding with or separate from June’s ALA shindig. Take photographs of it? Know someone who did? We’d like to publish your stories and photos. Also, we need an undergraduate voice on the ‘fish staff—someone who’s got complaints or compliments, and can write about it. (Or it could be about movie reviews.)
Send us your transcendent non-empirical concepts or, heck, even your concrete ideas for stories, photos, etc., etc.
Did I mention you can email submissions, gossip, corrections, comments, ideas, letters to the editor, bank account numbers (you get the idea) to thesilverfish@gmail?!
Keep up the good fight. Until next time,
The Staff of the Silverfish
