        Right on Peg!  The lack of knowledge of their customers implied
by our Web site is depressing.  If we don't take effective care of our
own knowledge-based information needs why should our customers/patrons
think we will take care of their knowledge-based information needs

        Most of the medical librarians (& librarians in general) that I
know are OPLs.  Most have more work than time, and most have limited
computer/Internet resources.  If our professional association doesn't
respect our present circumstances and provide real content in an
effective, efficient manner we have lost a great opportunity for them to
teach and us to learn.

        I was hoping to learn from the MLA site how to layout mine.
Instead I get another lesson in how NOT to do it.  Believe me, I have
learned that lesson.   What I have not learned is how TO do it.  I hope
that this is just one more step along the Information Super Highway's
development, and that those of use still mostly on the Information Dirt
Road will not be forgotten.

good day to all
