Michael F. BemisReference Librarian and Writer - Washington County Public Library, Woodbury, Minnesota, USA [May 2015, posted on Guest Book] -- I wanted to compliment you on your annotated bibliography entitled "Information Access Through the Subject." I recently became aware of your work through a notice on LinkedIn, of which I am a member. It is clear that you have put much time and effort into creating this well-researched document. 
I also would like to extend my congratulations on a very well designed and user-friendly website, namely, "Librarianship Studies & Information Technology." I discovered this site while searching for your previously mentioned bibliography.

Sally RobertsonSerials, Cataloger, Reference Librarian at Nashville State Community College, Nashville, Tennessee, United States [July 4, 2015, e-mail] -- I am adding your excellent blog to MERLOT.org ... ...

Ron KrateFounding Head, International Professors Project, UN Visiting Scholar, Vermont, United States [December 25, 2015, e-mail and LinkedIn] -- Thanks for your many highly useful contributions Salman!

José Antonio Carrillo, University of Salamanca, Spain [March 8, 2016, e-mail] -- Dear Salman, My name is José Antonio Carrillo, I am doing a master’s in Translation and Intercultural Mediation at the University of Salamanca (Spain), and am the manager of a translation project conducted within the university. All members of the project group are students, at master’s and undergraduate level. My colleagues and I need to translate contents from different blogs and journals into Spanish to post them on ExperimenTRADO, a website for academic purposes: http://diarium.usal.es/experimentrado/.This website is run by some professors at the University of Salamanca and it concerns topics such as library science, library studies, information science and technology. We have found many interesting articles on your website that would be ideal translation material since they perfectly suit our blog’s points of interest. Let me remind you that our blog is not profit oriented. The initiative has a twofold purpose: to spread library-related articles and to give students the opportunity to translate in a professional work environment. I am, therefore, requesting permission to translate some of the contents of the website you run to include them in the blog ExperimenTRADO. After being translated, we would include the link to the original website and the name of the author. Let me know if you might agree with the terms as described above. I would be very grateful for your permission. If you require any additional information, do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, José Antonio Carrillo

We need this Glossary in our work .

    This is pretty cool. Wish something like this had existed a few years ago to help wrap my head around all the acronyms we had to learn in Library School.
