Sign up for a Lightning Round or two when you register for the 2nd Reference Renaissance conference

Apr
23

Quick! You have 5 minutes to tell your colleagues about a great reference program, resource, service, or idea (maybe even about what you think will be the future of reference).

We’re looking for ideas that inspire and engage our students and patrons and make their lives easier and better. Maybe you'll tell us about a new technology that will change the way we do business. Or one that just makes it easier for users to reach professional help at the library.

Julius Caesar – The Ultimate Spinmeister?

Mar
31

For Immediate Release

(Calgary, Canada) One can hardly watch the TV news without having someone "interpret" events. Spin doctors, specialists whose careful shaping of words influences how history is both perceived and remembered, are common components on today's political front.

Yet who would have thought that one of the oldest and most accomplished spinmeisters of all time was the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar?
