2012 Fall/Winter Newsletter


Dear Friends, fall

The meadow near Bullfrog Films turns russet, and chilly December winds make goldenrod seed heads dance. Juncos and chickadees are back for the winter, waiting for us to fill the feeder. Last week seven whitetail deer appeared at dusk, watching us watching them. Every afternoon the light fades earlier as we move towards the winter solstice. Holiday lights fill the darkness, and the gardeners wait for new seed catalogues to dream by.

With the launch of Docuseek2, our new digital streaming portal, we invite you to take a test drive of the site and let us know what you think. We can stream! Next stop is the ACRL Conference in Indianapolis, April 10-13, 2013. Stop by Booth 1133 for conversation about digital streaming for your library with links to the course management system. By April we'll see green shoots in the meadow. But first the cover of ice and snow.

Enjoy a toasty 20% discount when you order 3 or more titles before January 31, 2013*. Mention "Fall Winter Newsletter" on your order.

We'd like to hear from you.
