I live in the East End of St. John's and will gladly share these books with any classmates that contact me.
I listed the contents because I thought that the names of people and topics might help my classmates with your searches for articles for Assignment # 3. I will be looking for 2010 articles to see what some of these people think now about XML in libraries. People who have been reading my blog know that I have great respect for Roy Tennant so I was especially glad to get that book.
