Cool! Where Can I Find an Item? Use of the Google Earth Plugin by the National University Library of Singapore

A new post on the Google Earth Blog takes another look (with screen caps) at how the National University of Singapore (NUS) Library uses the Google Earth Plugin.

This plug-in was first introduced by the NUS Library in 2008. Learn more in this post from October 13,2008.
