I have a small professional bookshelf next to my desk in the library. I've been slowly cleaning out the former librarian's clutter from this shelf over the past few months. Today, I discovered the book Being Digital on the shelf. Sounds like an interesting book, but unfortunately, the copyright date was 1996. I think I already know much more about "being digital" than the author could have dreamed of 14 years ago.
Goodbye to Being Digital, because I'm already there!

Sometimes I'm so busy, I become oblivious to the objects around me. I started my job as a librarian in last August and have been clearing away decades of clutter left by my predecessors. I've been surplussing (throwing out) books, av equipment and furniture by the truckload, but I really need to make my desk space a place where I can think and plan without physical clutter invading my mental processes.
Here's what's being deselected (librarian-speak for tossed) today:
