Dear Debbie (and others)
I feel I need to clear up a misunderstanding from my message about lack of
responses to replies. The general LM_NET stuff isn't the issue at all - it's
students who have assignments to interview a school-based librarian outside
of the US and that interview comprises questions that can take several hours
to answer because of the necessity to explain the differences between the
US/Canadian systems and that which we have here in Australia. I believe the
purpose of the assignment must be to identify common issues that affect the
professionals around the world and some solutions that might work.

After putting in the time and thought, the response is sent and then nothing
is ever heard again, so you just have to assume that the email reached its
destination and that what you provided was of use.  Even if there was just a
quick "message received" response, at least you would know that it was
received and the person is not sitting there waiting for it, thinking evil
thoughts about you for letting them down and sticking pins in dolls  :>)

I believe I was born for the age of the Internet and every time I respond to
someone for whatever reason, I learn too because it forces me to think and
clarify my thoughts and position so I love being part of this list and
having the opportunity to contribute to the education of the kids who will
lead the world when I am old and feeble and need someone smart enough to
make the best decisions for me.
