Institution Profiles

Seems like there's been quite a few media profiles of various biblio-institutions recently; here are some of them:

- The Getty Research Institute in LA, covered by Suzanne Muchnic for the LATimes. Her hook is the impending arrival of the Getty's new director, Thomas W. Gaehtgens.

- The Carter G. Woodson branch of the Chicago Public Library earns some ink in the ChiTrib for its ongoing exhibition of the Vivian G. Harsh Research Collection, believed to be the largest collection of African-American history and literature in the Midwest.

- Myrtle Beach Online writes up some big changes at USC's Thomas Cooper Library.
