Recent Library Additions and Updates



29 September 2017

I’m sorry to report that this will be the final “What’s New” update for the foreseeable future. After twenty years of what has become a full-time job and then some, it’s time for me to begin spending what remains of my life enjoying the company of friends and family, particularly my wife Loretta, who for far too long has put up with the limitations on our retirement activities imposed by the demands of the Beer Stein Library. Adding impetus to that decision is the fact that income from BSL membership fees is not nearly sufficient to keep up with advancing technologies, so that at this point both the membership and search programming have become obsolete. Moreover, it has been impossible to even begin adapting the Library to the wide range of devices now being used to access information on the Internet.

The good news is that there’s enough money available to keep the BSL operating in essentially its current form through the end of 2018. However, beginning sometime during the next week, logins will no longer be required, thereby resolving the membership software obsolescence problem, so access will be free to all interested parties from that point forward. Library content will remain largely unaffected, but the current search software will be replaced with Google Search. In all likelihood, the change will produce better and more comprehensive results, though in at least some cases those results will be preceded by the sort of advertisements that are typical of Google searches.

To the many members who have provided photos and related information over the years, your contributions have benefitted us all and were much appreciated. My very special thanks to Dagmar Rives, Jerry Berg, John Hataloski and Andre Ammelounx, whose extensive and ongoing support played a huge role in making the Beer Stein Library what it is today. It would not have happened without you.

Of course it’s my hope that the information so carefully compiled over two decades will not disappear permanently after 2018. If you have any thoughts as how that data might be preserved for future generations of collectors, please pass them along to me in an email addressed to [email protected].

11 July 2017 (7:00 p.m.)
For those who were inconvenienced by the Library’s downtime a couple of weeks ago, please accept our apologies. Unfortunately, our Internet service provider (ISP) fell victim one of the “ransomware” attacks that have been occurring recently throughout the U.S. and Europe. During the period following that attack, the ISP has taken the precaution of reengineering its entire network infrastructure to ensure against any recurrences, so you can be reasonably confident that there will be no similar outages in the foreseeable future.

Although member access to the Library was restored on 30 June, new materials could not be uploaded until late today. Hence the absence of recent postings to the “What’s New” page.

Thank you for your patience. Regular postings will resume here tomorrow morning.
