In 2008, Rhonda Hendrickson, a film producer with an MLIS, became a board member of Friends of the Troy Public Library, little dreaming she would become part of a 2-year drama that would receive worldwide press. The story she relays in "Troy PL's Battle for Survival: Anti-Tax and Book Burning Threats" has more twists and turns than a James Patterson mystery. Meanwhile, if you often go hunting for information on individuals, check out Ran Hock's article "LeadFerret: Ferreting Out People Information." While not all info that turns up on LeadFerret is up-to-date or accurate, Hock concludes that for identifying leads and doing people searches, its indexing and searchability make this Web site a worthy addition to your search toolkit.
