The University of Glasgow IT department keeps our Net infrastructure hypersecurely walled off from the big, bad, wild Outside World (here be worms, phish, and pirates!); I get frustrated several times a week at the relatively simple web operations that either can’t or won’t be done. In a somewhat bleak institutional IT landscape, though, the library staff is very active online, with their own WordPress blog and Flickr photostream (please CC license the images!), on top of a vigourous Open Access initiative. No surprise that librarians are leading the way; I’m going to have to make some friends across the street.
