Hi Paula, 
        I'm an Internet Librarian on contract to Kitchener Public Library. 
Before that, I was on contract to Wilfrid Laurier University. I have an 
M.L.I.S. and and M.A. in English. I have also worked 2 years at Carswell the 
law book publisher as a production editor. I
        I've been on the Net for about 2 years now and am fascinated by it. 
Every time on is a giant leap into adventure. It would be rewarding to offer 
some help to users looking for exciting web sites. 
        I'm creating KPL's Home Page and I keep the library up to date on 
what's new and interesting on the Net (especially the Web). For me, every 
moment on the Web is fascinating. I'd be interested in updating the Recipes 
forum or else the Reading Room forum.
        Please drop me a line and give me some more details!

>Attn: Uncommon Librarians and Others
>I am issuing a call for Forum Editors for our "True North" WWW Navigation site:
>The site has just seen its initial restructuring and the next step is to 
>Editors for each of the subject "Forums".  The Editors will be responsible for 
>rating, critiquing, and otherwise commenting on existing infosources in their 
>particular category.  The requirements obviously (or is it just obvious to me) 
>lean toward librarians and other information professionals who are interested, 
>not to mention adept, in all matters Web.  
>The Forums, or Subject Categories include:
>           Health | Leisure | Science | Sports | Media | Arts | Computers | 
Education | Politics | 
>             Law | Entertainment | Humanities | Reference | Children 
>If you are reading this (and you are), and you have a certian "je ne sais 
>in one of the above categories, and are interested in making the Web, and the 
>Internet at large, a better place to be, and wouldn't mind a little fame and a 
>sprinkling of fortune (give or take), please drop me a line at:
>Paula.MacKinnon at
>A few astericks: 
>- iSTAR internet inc is Canada's "oldest and largest" national internet 
>provider.  For more info see:
>- TrueNorth will eventually be closed to users outside the iSTAR family, 
due to 
>the addition of a number of value-added info services (not the least of which 
>will be your growing number of infosource reviews)
>- Biographical information will be provided for each Editor so that patrons 
>have a sense of who is reviewing the information and their qualifications to 
>that end.
>- A powerful search engine and database will be added to TrueNorth allowing 
>patrons to keyword search the Web.
>I look forward to hearing from, and potentially working with you.
