...una biblioteca es un gabinete mágico en el cual hay muchos espíritus hechizados. Despiertan cuando los llamamos; mientras no abrimos un libro, ese libro, literalmente, es un volumen, es una cosa entre las cosas.      - Emerson

1. Second REFORMA National Conference

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

In its long history of working hard to improve library service to Spanish-speakers, REFORMA has had one national conference.  That's why this August's get-together in Tucson is a very big deal.  This will be a great chance to exchange ideas with some of the most energetic, knowledgeable, and imaginative librarians in this branch of service.  Please check www.reforma.org/refonews.htm to find out more.

2. Indigenous Languages

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From:  flaco@sol-plus.net

I know many of you are working in areas with lots of speakers of languages such as Mixtec, Zapotec, and Nahautl.  Has anyone made outreach or service efforts directed toward these groups?  Is anyone interested in collaborating on same?

3. Lingual Library Links

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

From: Clara M. Chu, Assistant Professor (cchu@ucla.edu)

UCLA Department of Information Studies

Hi, all.  I had not referred you to the "LibraryLand: Outreach: Services for Non-English Speakers," http://www.librarylandindex.org/out/poly.htm

because the list of links is not complete...However, since it was just sitting in front of me I just noticed that they provide a reference to Multilingual World Wide Web Working

Group http://www.vicnet.net.au/multiling/resources.htm  Again, it's not complete but a good resource you should check out.
