Things are looking good for our Guild! We have been having quite a lot of fun playing and chatting and I can happily report that there are now 55 characters in our happy little library-centric guild. A good estimate is that these characters are represented by 35-40 different people (including three from Australia. Hello mates!). By my own unscientific estimation I would say that about 2/3 of the characters would be considered “regular” Guild players.

If you are interested in giving the game a shot you might want to consider dropping me a line first. If you do that I will hook you up with the refer a friend program with someone in our guild. It will make the game a lot easier for you and will also get you and your Guild partner and bunch of cool extras that really add up. Also, if you have a partner or significant other, my strong advice is to play together. WoW can be a lot of fun as a team and we’ve already seen couples in the guild having a great time together helping each other (and benefiting from Refer-a-Friend for sure *ahem* Rosz!) And with that, we bring you…pretty pictures!

Here is a nifty logo some of us will soon be wearing on t-shirts:

And here are some stats for the guild. You’ll need to click to see the larger version if you are interested in more details. More female characters and plenty of hunters. Lots of other fun details here if you are so inclined. :)

There are also a ton of screen shots that guild members have been taking over the last several months. You can find that pool of images here. Enjoy!

We Are High Fidelity Libraries

A brief video snippet (with added graphics) that describes why the “hi-fi” in “hi-fi sci-fi library” is key to our present and future success.

Fighting the forces of evil and oppression with your high fidelity library/librarians!

Pre-LITA Forum 2008

Not sure how the joke will go tomorrow, but…shhhhhh! I am gonna rick roll the heck out of my LITA “hi-fi sci-fi library” keynote session attendees tomorrow. It is already a pretty funky presentation that talks about libraries, the content, community, hardware and software environment all in a way that sets up a series of stories taken from science fiction. Throw in a rickrol and who know what will happen. Wish me luck!
