Resources for School Librarians and Deuchrie Dod lambs

An excellent source for a wide variety of topics relating to school/teacher librarianship is Resources for School Librarians. This is a site that some/many of you may have visited and it regularly pops up when you search for school library topics. Its areas include Learning and Teaching (including information literacy); Information Access (including collection development); and Technology (including a very good section on Web 2.0). It is USA based but international in nature and certainly worth bookmarking for future use.

Out in the countryside recently, up near Deuchrie Dod (pr. Due-kri), the fresh spring grass was providing excellent food for the sheep feeding their lambs (see picture below). A Dod is a Scottish word for ‘a bare hill with a rounded top’ although it has other meanings which you can search for in the Dictionary of the Scots Language.  Spring lambs in Scotland of course are nice to look at but also (vegetarians stop reading now) make a very nice roast. So put your leg of lamb on a layer of shallots, add stock and good red wine and cook slowly. Serve with new potatoes and Knowes Farm “sun and dung” dirty carrots. Delicious.
