How to improve libraries' websites... for example Boston Public Library http://www.bpl.org/distinction/curator-profiles/ and Cambridge Public Library can setup webpages for treasured librarians. Colleges and universities have faculty webpages. Libraries as well can have librarians' webpages, curators' webpages.

Create more opportunities for library specialists to share their expertise in re library collections, share special interests in re their libraries' collections.

Read the theses and dissertations of new Directors of local libraries http://www.simmons.edu/library/archives/collections/scholar Boston Public Library President David Leonard @DLeonard ... and Cambridge Public Library Director M McCauley @YogiLibrarian “Community Leadership: The Role of Public Library Directors."

Advocate for Chinatown Public Library!

I hope Mahhty was stuck for hours in the nightmare at Forest Hills due to the mess caused by "new paving work" which still hasn't amounted to any nice results. So sick of it. The whole area looks, feels and smells dangerous.

Walsh had nothing to do with the Arborway project. First. it was all decided before he became mayor. Second, it's all a state project, so Boston had nothing to do with the project anyway.

Why, Menino even came out and said he'd rather keep an overpass, and then Charles Yancey said a surface road would be discrimination against minorities and the state still went with the surface-road option.

I could link you to articles on these points, but people who put words in both bold and italics often tend to be rather set in their beliefs, so there's not much point in me wasting my time, is there?

a) New models for the Library Reference Desk.
New models for Library Reference Desk services... library users enthusiastic about their public library and facilitating Reference Desk Librarians could develop online and/or library on site groups for sharing hints, tips, pointers about using library resources easier.

A new model for Reference Desk services could, in addition to the traditions of Public Library Reference Desk services, could facilitate small group or larger group or crowd sourcing experiences for folks with enquiries.

A group model of Reference Desk services offered for rank amateur enquiries or advanced level professional enquiries.

There are library users interested in sharing their special interests for advancing their knowledge.

b) Librarians, Curators, Library Specialists' webpages.
Or look into ways to make library usability easier offering Librarians, Curators, Library Specialists better opportunities to post webpages like college/university faculty.

Offer better opportunities for voluntarily sharing expertise with library collections, sharing special interests with library collections.
