Wow, what an unintentional blogging vacation that ended up being!
Between a new job and a new state (we're still unpacking!), trying to get the internet hooked up, a fence for the dog, not to mention the shock to the system of working full time again after a year "off" as a student....well. Who had time to think about blogging, beyond occasional guilt bouts!
However, life has now settled (a bit), and I'm definitely having food-for-blogging in discovering the contrast between theoretical librarianship and in-the-high-school-trenches librarianship.
But more on that later...
In the meantime, here's a cool new resource. Ohio State University has a Cartoon Research Database with more than 250,000 original cartoons, both historical and modern.
