Alabama Bill Targets Gay Authors
Three words describe what's discussed in this story, Awful, pathetic, and sad. From the article, "Republican Alabama lawmaker Gerald Allen says homosexuality is an unacceptable lifestyle. As CBS News Correspondent Mark Strassmann reports, under his bill, public school libraries could no longer buy new copies of plays or books by gay authors, or about gay characters."

National Libraries--Europe
Digitization Projects
Source: Turkish Press
European libraries join forces against Google global virtual library
"The 19 [Eurepean national] libraries are backing instead a multi-million euro counter-offensive by European nations to put European literature online...The statement was signed by national libraires in Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Poland, Slovenia, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden." The more digitization (if done properly) the better. However, instead of disparate projects it would be better if Google, national libraries, and others could work together to avoid duplication, resources, and time. Oh well.
