Free e-learning site
The Stingy Scholar is an interesting site with links to online repositories and tutorials, both personal and professional, at a variety of grade levels. For example, the January 31 entry highlights "Science, Optics, and You." While that program is targeted to the elementary grades, those of you who, like me, have taken advantages of the old librarians' trick of looking at children's literature for quick and understandable introductions to a topic may find it and similar links useful.

Here is a funny coincidence--I was searching for a typing course for a loyal patron and came up empty despite checking all WCC and local library courses. Someone suggested using "keyboarding" as the search term, but that yielded mostly piano instructions. Then, I happened to be reading "The Stingy Scholar," and the second thing my eyes fell upon was---instructions on how to teach yourself to type (or keyboard, as the case may be). The patron was quite delighted! (I think, in fact, that he wrote me a personal kudo when he filled out the Patron Survey form).
