Subject: Daily journal helps librarians cope with "information overload."

        The amount of diverse information that a librarian today is expected to
read and understand is staggering compared with even 10 years ago.  And it
comes at a time of staff cutbacks at most libraries.

        Every librarian comes to understand that a person simply cannot process
this deluge of data, and creates or borrows tools to deal with the
information overload.

        Keeping a daily journal of significant ideas, memos and articles is one way
to handle the overload.  While not a perfect solution, it seems to fit with
the work modes and habits of many librarians.

        Keep your journal on any media -- steno pads, notebooks, scraps of paper.
But certain methods ensure maximum value from your journal.  The best
combination is a pocket-sized, folded sheet that goes with you for immediate
entry of notes, and a PC to enter significant notes when convenient.

        For a short memo on the subject [which will add to your information
overload!], email "[log in to unmask]".  Our free software, SquareNote3.5 is
ideal for maintaining a daily journal.  Good luck and best wishes,
