Blisspix lists songs about libraries and librarians and offers, if available, their lyrics. By the way: Tori Amos' new album is named "Tales of a librarian".
There is an interesting conference in Bielefeld in February next year: The overall topic is "Thinking Beyond Digital Libraries - Designing the Information Strategy for the Next Decade". Sessions include "Information Strategy for Universities and Academic Libraries", "Innovative Technologies to Access and Network Academic Online Information", "Intelligent Search Engine & Navigation Technology in Digital Libraries and Information Portals".
For me, the most interesting one is "New Services of Academic Libraries - Institutional Scholarly Publication Repositories" - a current topic in times of restricted budgets and increasing journal prices. The conference will be held in English and German with simultaneous translation.
