- The masterpieces of the Prado Museum (Spain) are now available to peruse via Google Earth. If this video is anything to go by, it’s a pretty amazing tool. While I believe that there is nothing better than the real thing, you’d probably get a better view of the paintings than you would if you were actually there, what with tourists blocking your view.
- Toronto may be getting a library vending machine! It won’t replace branches, but I imagine it would be very handy for people on the go. I’d love to play with one.
- Dan pointed out this post on LibraryJournal about freegal music being available in some libraries. Good for Sony, this looks like a positive way of getting around the massive problems facing the record industry. Turns out libraries can save the world.
- And here’s a picture book we might not want to shelve in the Children’s area. All My Friends Are Dead by Avery Monsen and Jory John. Yes, it is a real book. Request to buy, anyone?
This has been a Rachael round-up. Thank you for tuning in.
