The latest from the blogosphere

It has been a while since I blogged last. This is what I have found on the iLibrarinan blog, that could be of interest:
A New Look for Delicious
The Delicious social bookmarking website has undergone a transformation to a sleek new design which is much easier on the eyes. What has change:
- “Speed: We’ve moved to a new infrastructure that makes every page faster.
- Search: We’ve completely overhauled our search engine to make it faster and more powerful.
- Design: Finally, we’ve updated the user interface to improve usability and add a few often-requested features (such as selectable detail levels and alphabetical sorting of bookmarks). Check out the
What’s New page for an overview of the changes.
Have a look at my
sciencelibrarian on Delicious to see all these changes. I'm really impressed with the new "makeover" as it is much easier to spot the tagged information.

Pirated and Open Source Books
These are quite a few projects with Open Source books which have been made free by their copyright holders. If you are a student or a professor about to choose your readings for the fall semester, you may want to consider some of these choices: Textbook Revolution ; Global Text Project etc.
