LM_NET Archive

It is almost 10:30pm and I just finished catching up on LM_NET messages--always a 
worthwhile endeavor but time consuming none the less.  I noticed several intro 
messages from MLS students.  My comments are not directed at them but at the 
professor or professors that assign students to send messages to the list.

Maybe I am just getting old and cranky but does LM_NET need superfluous messages?  
And is that the best e-mail list assignment that could be devised?  How about 
having students lurk and summarize some of the most discussed topics?  Or what 
about researching controversial issues in the archives?  Or they could lurk on 
several lists and compare and contrast them.  Sending a message to a professional 
list just for the sake of sending a message doesn't seem like an activity worthy of 
a graduate program.

Or is it just me?

What am I reading now?

"When I read about the way in which library funds are being cut and cut, I can only 
think that American society has found one more way to destroy itself." (Isaac
