2. Online government and labor information
From: Anne Fullerton email@example.com
You might want to add a link to HiCitizen en Español.
They theoretically are a directory of all US government information
in Spanish (IMHO, it's incomplete but it's the only thing I've found
so far that does this). The address is http://www.hicitizen.com/content/NavigationalServlet?page=2&NodeId=1150
I have developed a collection of Spanish language labor-related
links at http://www.afscme.org/spanish/enlaces.htm
I'm adding your Bibliotecario to that list. Thanks for your work
in this area.
AFSCME Information Center
[Thanks to Anne, HiCitizen is now on 'Tu Bibliotecario
Electrónico'. Mil gracias also to the good folks at the Librarian's
Index to the Internet for adding TBE this week.]
3. Chomsky and Z Magazine
in Spanish online
Manuel Bello <firstname.lastname@example.org> points us toward the
Biblioteca Virtual Noam Chomsky, with more than 50 translations
of Chomsky's articles available, full text: http://www.galeon.com/bvchomsky/.
Also of interest to folks wary of dominant paradigms is the large
and growing Spanish-language version of Z-net http://www.zmag.org/Spanish/index.htm

5. Travel with Yahoo
Yahoo's Spanish-language portal http://espanol.yahoo.com/ this week adds
a travel section ('Viajes') that helps trotamundos book flights,
lodging, a car rentals.
6. Brag about your catalog!
Do the cataloging practices in your public library
accommodate monolingual readers of Spanish by including 'extra'
access points in their language? Do your Spanish-language and bilingual
materials have records with subject headings, notes, or contents
fields that use Spanish? Let me know, and I'll try to make you famous
so that more libraries can imitate you...
