Missed one! Around year 2000, an FBI agent walked into a Kinko's with a black and white photo and asked for copies. (copyright infringement was being investigated) The employee said, "No problem. How many?" Agent asked about the copyright printed on the front of the picture. Not a problem. The employee arranged the pictured on the copier to omit the copyright in reproductions for a nicer image. The fine was in the millions and now FedEx owns Kinko's.Apr 26, 2013

Great ideas here! I also love Colour Lovers to find great, already organized colour palette's!

Sandra Carswell's curator insight, March 19, 2014 4:17 AM

Selecting color schemes is not limited to presentations. How about your signage and bulletin boards in the library or digital flyers and posters used to advertise and promote the library programs and resources. Even your website may be spiffied up a bit with a new color selection.

Then, after Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight Saga found similar success we started seeing studios fishing for their piece of the pie. Some failed miserably, at least as far as the studios were concerned (Inkheart, The Golden Compass, Eragon) and for others …

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Simply Amazing:  libraries and all things related | Scoop.it
Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.
