Representatives from SULAIR will be at the IT Open House showcasing some of our own "cloud" resources. Folks from Green Library will be speaking about Cloud Computing at the Libraries and Quick Response (QR) Codes as they pertain to SearchWork, while representatives from the Science and Engineering Libraries will be highlighting the Geo Portal, a new portal for discovering, previewing and retrieving geospatial data, and they will be handing out their "word cloud" postcard listing all the Science and Engineering Libraries.
SULAIR has no new positions this week.

2012 marks the centenary of Captain Robert Falcon Scott's last expedition to Antarctica: Scott and his men reached the South Pole on 17 January 1912, only to discover that Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen had beaten them to the prize. Scott and his party perished on the return route. Recently, studies of Scott's expedition and other explorations of the "Heroic Age" have re-emphasized the scientific contributions made by these pioneers.
Vicky Reich, Director of the LOCKSS project, was recently interviewed on the topic, "Why Preservation Matters". The interview can be found at http://www.researchinformation.info/features/feature.php?feature_id=366
