[TriLUG] o'reilly books
Thu, 23 Aug 2001 07:50:09 -0400
O'Reilly is kind enough to provide us with pretty much any books that I
have asked for so far. I believe they have donated around 10 or so thus
far. The books do get checked out occasionally, and it isn't always the
same people checking out books. The difficulty with the library is that
it cannot all be transported to meeting and many of us don't remember to
request books in advance. If you're like me you don't always realize a
book might be useful until you see it on the shelf :)
I am working on a dynamic library/request system for the website in all
my free time ;) I am sure I will have it done one of these days and
maybe that can assist in making it easier to get your hands on a title.
Thanks for the offer. I hope the library can continue to grow and be of
more usefulness to the members of TriLUG and remember, if you want a
book just ask... If we don't have it we may very well be able to get
