I'm Back!

I'm back and blogging from Beijing!  It took a while to get up and running, and I'm still looking for a permanent place to live, but everything in good time, right?  If you're interested, here's my China blog.  Scroll down a few posts and you'll find picture of the school (and library).  It's an amazing facility, I must say!

Just a quick post this time.   I found "Order in the Library"  while catcing up on LM_Net emails. It's an interactive game for Dewey and shelving in general.  It would be fun practice for the elementary kids, and a good skills test for student aides.  It offers different levels from expert to genius, and even I got a one wrong on the genius level.

(That word "even" is completely facetious.  I tend to fall in the "If it's on the right shelf, that's close enough" school of  shelving. My library instructor would be horrified.)
