Interim University Librarian's Update
I'm a month into the job as Interim University Librarian and am happy to report that so far so good.

The credit goes to you, the staff of this incredible institution.
1st Seminar on Juridicial Information Management in Digital Environments
Claire M. Germain, the Edward Cornell Law Librarian and professor of law at the Law School, traveled to Brasilia at the invitation of Chief Justice Ellen Gracie Northfleet to give the keynote address at the 1st Seminar on Juridical Information Management in Digital Environments, Brasilia, Brazil, on Monday, February 12, 2007. Some 560 participants attended, mostly law librarians, but also technologists and government officials and staff.

Getting Up to Speed with Cyberinfrastructure
In the past few months, I've had the good fortune to get started in my new position as the Research Data and Environmental Sciences Librarian by attending two events that have taught me a great deal about cyberinfrastructure (CI) and science informatics. The first was the Cyberinfrastructure Summer Institute for Geoscientists (CSIG), held in August at the San Diego Super Computer Center. The second was the 5th International Conference on Ecological Informatics, held in early December in Santa Barbara.
100 Years as a Federal Depository Library
CUL has over 285,000 federal documents in its online catalog, and most of them have been received from the GPO free of charge as depository materials. Today, this collection is priceless.
