Convert Your Files Online with Zamzar

caterpillar butterfly imageOne question I often get asked working in the library, is how to convert files from one file type to another.  For example, many companies will request that you send documents (a resume, perhaps) in a PDF format, but most likely your document is currently in a Microsoft Word format.  With Zamzar, you can easily convert from Word to PDF in less than a minute (no scanner hardware needed!). 

Good News, Good News - Read All About It

smile face with newspaperThey say no news is good news (or at least King James I of England is said to have first uttered the phrase), but I would have to disagree.  Lets face it, the news is often filled with stories that leave us (or at least me) feeling sad, upset, or just plain tired.  So, sometimes, you do need to see and/or hear about good news.  The stories that remind you of all the good happening both close to home and far away.  To that end, check out these two websites that offer good news only; Good News Now and Happy News.
