APL in the News

Swiped again from Stephanie Simon, Albany Public Library:

The March issue of the Albany-Colonie Chamber of Commerce's monthly magazine, Visions, features APL on the cover. Several of our administrators -- Executive Director Carol Nersinger, Assistant Director Tim Burke, and Automation Services Librarian Marcia Middleton -- were interviewed at the new Pine Hills branch in January for the cover story about libraries and technology. The three-page article features APL's new branch libraries and how technology has impacted the way we do business. Several other area libraries -- Menands Public Library, William K. Sanford Town Library, and New York State Library -- are also included in the story. You can read the article online at the Chamber web site.

APL is also featured as the cover story of the Winter 2010 New York Library Association (NYLA) Bulletin. Head of Collection Management Services Mary Coon was interviewed for a story about implementing a Dewey-free classification system at Albany's branch libraries. You can read about the "APL categories" classification system for nonfiction books at the NYLA web site.
