Stephen Abram from Stephen's Lighthouse blog is pointing out to a post from the Online Education Database ( OEDB) about the most interesting Web 2.0 search engines. The list of search engines is very impresive and so is the mix up ( mashups ) of different services and data that they offer. My favorite one is Topix.net classifying news by zip code and different topix. If you have time to spare this is a list for further exploration.
Library Journal also had a post this week about the "Sirsi Dynix Institute" ( free forum dedicated to library professional development) chaired by Stephen Abram, which has created an international advisory council. For the goals and role of the new council check the Library Journal post here.
