Brand New Google Tool: Google Desktop Search

If you're like most librarians, Google has become one of your essential tools of the trade. And now Google has expanded its search capabilities to our desktops! Google Desktop Search installs just about as quickly as the Google Toolbar does (another tool I've found essential). You download the application, it indexes what's on your hard drive, in your e-mail, searches you've run, webpage history, instant messages, etc.


RFID and Libraries

RFID Survey

Infopeople and the IT section of CLA have cooperatively developed an online survey designed to collect information about RFID in California libraries.
