This is a blog about travel, books, food, politics and activities during retirement.  You can find my YouTube videos here.  I also write occasional information-related posts.  I input into JournalTOCs, the current awareness service for researchers.

  1. Good wishes for your new phase of life after retirement. However I believe your wisdom and insight is precious for library community and hope that this blog will be a good source for us to reach your insight.

  2. Hello Roddy,
    I just want to wish you a good and healthy retirement. We all go through this sooner or later. I also want to thank you for your fantastic contribution to our profession.

    Good luck!

  3. Best wishes Roddy, on your change of direction. The term ‘retirement’ is so suggestive of hanging around in God’s waiting room that I never use it. I too will soon be making a similar move. So much to do and the bliss of doing it on your own terms. We are so lucky to have theses choices. I will miss your Internet Resources Newsletter – so relevant and not bloated like some I have received.

    All the best, with good skiing and no crevices on the slopes ahead – George

  4. Hi Roddy,

    Thanks for the tweet about Musopen. I’d love to chat with you about some questions regarding Musopen and your experience with library resources if you have some time. Is there an email address I could send you some questions to?

  6. Hi,

    I am a student from Lancaster University currently doing some research for
    my undergraduate dissertation on the Edinburgh Tram Project. My aim is to
    look at the costs and benefits of the project.

    I am looking for people who live in Edinburgh to help me with my research.
    I am trying to gain a variety of opinions on the tram project and was
    wondering if I could ask you some questions via e-mail about your opinion
    on the Edinburgh trams to include in my dissertation?
    If you are interested in helping, please e-mail me.
    I will look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind Regards
    Nicola Waller

  7. Hi Nicola,

    Apart from being disgusted by the cost so far, and all the road diggings, I haven’t particularly followed the tram fiasco, but you can email me, and if I can’t answer your questions, I can probably pass them on to another Edinburgh resident.
