National Geographic

Yes, I am aware the library subscribes to the National Geographic. In additon to the subscription, the National Geographic website had CD, DVD, maps and other magazine subscription materials.

The idea of driving people to the website was to buy materials other than the subscription to National Geographic.

... Ah ha, should have read your post better...

... anyway I have updated the text of the post to remove this inacurracy. Hopefully we can have a "Registry" or "Wish list" facility that the librarian can manage. That will have to wait for next release. Now it is just great to get started...
