Best of Fall Semester 2011

31/01/2012 § 5 Comments

Carrying on the tradition of past end-of-semester wrap-up posts, we’ve pulled together some articles from Fall Semester, 2011 for your viewing enjoyment. Some of you may be in your last semester in library school (congratulations!) or maybe you’re still in the first year (hang in there!). Either way, to keep you busy we’ve compiled some reading lists you can return to over the next few weeks and get caught up. Think of it as HackLibSchool 101.

And for good measure a few digital books that I’ve seen develop from nothing that came out this fall:

  • Hacking The Academy - a collection of essays on the (re)evolutions occurring in higher ed.
  • #alt-academy - community-building and networked scholarly communication around the theme of unconventional or alternative academic careers.

Best of Semester One

25/04/2011 § 1 Comment

Hi,

Since we are all still students, or very VERY early career LIS pros, this time of year is especially full of things to do. That said, you’ll see new content slow down here, for at least the next week or two. We’ll be planning the summer semester’s worth of writing, recruiting new Editors/contributors, and generally resting after an amazing kick-off semester this Spring.

To keep you busy we’ve compiled some reading lists you can return to over the next few weeks and get caught up on. Think of it as HackLibSchool 101.
