    Dear Mr. Herring,

    Good day! I’m an overseas student of BA LIS at CSU, AU. Just clicked in to see your profile as I tried to recall if we’ve met at the the course intro or IASL meetings in 2005 or 2007. It’s amazing seeing you able to make time for a blog & share your views with us.

    As a Librarian, I really feel myself not knowing enough to maximize the performance & the could be, of my library. Anyway, I’ll push myself to learn from all the others who are willing to share with us.

    Librarians and library patrons may be interested in my Historical Novels website at http://www.HistoricalNovels.info, new since January 2008. It lists over 3500 historical novels organized by time and place. Almost 30 reviews are currently posted, with more on the way.

    I was wondering if you run any courses or offer insets in schools? Or do you know anyone else who does?

    Dear James,
    I am currently studying ETL 501 and I am using your website criteria for assignment 1. I wanted to use ‘About James Herring’ in my introduction. Could you please direct me to where I can find the date it was published for my reference list? I look forward to revisiting your blog for assignment 2 – pathfinders.
    Hope you are enjoying the Olympics – it has been a bit disappointing down here.

    Kind regards,

    Cath Evans

    Hello from James Herring. My wife Googled my name the other day and came across your travel blog. There are some interesting parallels in our lives: same name, both retired in early 2012, and both of us like to travel. I accomplished a goal to play golf in all 50 states in the USA during 2012 – – – something I wrote about in a travel blog located at http://www.golfusa2012.blogspot.com. I will be visiting Scotland this May to play golf at several of your top golf courses: Turnberry, Troon, Muirfield, Carnoustie and St. Andrews. My son set a very full schedule but it would be interesting to share a beer if you will be near any of those destinations the week of 5-10 May. Enjoy your retirement!
