It’s the end of the calendar year and time for a year-in-review post. I’m stealing an idea I found on The Book of Trogool and Christina’s LIS Rant. Below are the first sentences from the first blog post of each month in 2010. New resources, event announcements, and notices of service interruptions abound.

  • January: RefWorks is upgrading its servers on January 2 starting at 4 AM EST.
  • February: Safari Books Online includes hundreds of videos on technology topics, including video training series and substantial talks from important figures in technology. [Were you here for Snowmaggedon?]
  • March: Actually, any and every month is a good time to celebrate women’s history, but in 1987, Congress designated March as Women’s History Month.
  • April: APRIL is the cruellest month…
  • May: For those who appreciated our earlier posts on barcode scanning and WorldCat apps, take note of the RedLaser app.
  • June: You’ve been asking for it; we listened.
  • July: Over the next several months construction crews will be working to relocate existing utility lines in preparation for an eventual hook up to the Brody Learning Commons building.
  • August: The Exposition Universelle 1900, commonly known as the Paris Exposition, was held in Paris from April 15 to November 12, 1900 to commemorate the progress and development of the past century.
  • September: In some cases, yes – but in most cases, no.
  • October: Construction crews will be connecting electrical power to the Brody Learning Commons site this weekend, which will require interruption of power at the Milton S. Eisenhower Library for several hours.
  • November: The Friends of the Libraries invite you to an evening of weird science with New York Times bestselling author Sam Kean, who will read from his new book The Disappearing Spoon.
  • December: As spring semester approaches, here are some important Blackboard updates.

I’m sure 2011 will be just as busy and interesting!
