The Internet’s keepers? “Some call us hoarders—I like to say we’re archivists” | Ars Technica
Though perhaps the most simple and effective tool of all comes from the Wayback Machine itself—the site allows anyone to manually send a link to the Internet Archive for archiving right from its homepage. “If I’m walking my cat in the garden and I see a story in Google News, you can send it to a printer. But today you can also send it to the Internet Archive,” Graham says. He estimated up to one million captures per week can come from that.

Call it the Frank Rich Discount: The Sunday New York Times moves from premium product to loss leader — and the best deal for digital access » Nieman Journalism Lab » Pushing to the Future of Journalism
Want the digital bundle? Subscribe to the Sunday paper, get the digital bundle for (less than) free — but have the Sunday Times delivered to a local library instead of your house. Or a community center, or a nursing home. Or, if you’re feeling cheeky, maybe directly to a recycling center, or a Boy Scout camp for kindling? That moves the Frank Rich Discount from win-win to win-win-win.

The library - a recession sanctuary - The Boston Globe
"Libraries are unfortunately used to this," Ryan said. "But the essential role of the library cannot be duplicated in anybody's home, when you consider the combination of manuals, books, and librarian expertise," Ryan said. "In down economic times, families aren't going out to spend a lot of money on books and movies. This is when the branches can shine as a community gathering place and at a time when people are seeking answers to life improvement."

Poynter Online - Al's Morning Meeting - NPR's Andy Carvin on the Role of Social Media in Gustav Coverage
"If you treat them as an audience -- treat them passively -- don't expect to get much more from them than letters to the editor. But the public can act as your bookers, your fixers, your librarians, your engineers and even your producers if you can give them a vision of what you want to accomplish together and the space they need to go do it."

Tim Spalding - Future of Librarians Interview - DegreeTutor.com
"That's a very sort of binary way of seeing the world: you’re my friend, you’re not my friend, maybe you’re my friend but I’m not your friend. The idea behind LibraryThing is that you’re connected to people in much more complex ways."
