Exciting resources!

I've been taking an information policy class and I've found out about a lot of great resources. Most of them have a strong focus on policy, so many people probably aren't interested in them. BUT here are a couple that could be helpful to our patrons: This is a news site for global current affairs. You can look for articles, editorials, and forums on a particular region or topic. I really like that it has overviews of issues as well as more in-depth research, on the Iraq conflict for example. Project Gutenberg, the public domain digitizing giant, is working with some organizations to provide downloadable audio books. I'm more familiar with, but the three projects combined can provide a lot of titles--for free. How exciting! And they are looking for volunteer readers to make more books available, if you're looking for something to do.
