Will share MUN XML Books with My Classmates

Tonight I signed out the following 3 books from the MUN QEII Library.
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.

Hi This is my first attempt at doing a comment posting - hope it works!

You are lucky to have found books about XML. I had to use Ebsco because the only books in my library system have titles like XML for Dummies - great for learning to write XML but not so great for doing a project about XML applications. What I find interesting is that Roy Tennant's name came up quite a bit in the records my searches retrieved. There were quite a few book reviews about what he had written!
