EduHound Weekly: August 18, 2005

TOPIC OF THE WEEK: REFERENCE

"There are times when I think that the ideal library is composed solely of reference books. They are like understanding friends—always ready to meet your mood, always ready to change the subject when you have had enough of this or that."
- J Donald Adams

JUDI'S CORNER

This week features an excellent exhibit from the Smithsonian:

Sports: Breaking Records, Breaking Barriers

Highlighting artifacts from the Smithsonian's sports collection, the exhibition spotlights the pioneering men and women who dominated their sports; championed their country, race, or sex; and helped others to achieve.
