A Dog Named Zelda

I often visit a blog called HardestLevel. It is a great video game blog with lots of reviews and interesting posts about gamer culture. Today I stumbled on a post about naming pets after video game characters. The author has a dog he named "Zelda". Many others posted, that they too had named their pets after video game characters. So, this got me wondering, have any of you named your pets after games or game characters?

National American Indian Heritage Month

In 1990 President George H. W. Bush approved a joint resolution designating November 1990 National American Indian Heritage Month. Similar proclamations have been issued each year since 1994. The National Register of Historic Places has put together a list of sites promoting the history and culture of Native Americans. The following Special Collection is designed to highlight some of the library's many resources about Native Americans.
