This little article in Chronicle of Higher Education 2 August 2010 tells of the work of Mark McBridge at Buffalo State College of the State University of New York. The work of this "blended librarian" should not be too much of a surprise to readers of this blog. "Mr. McBride teaches a course called Library 300. Its goal is not just to teach college students how and where to find information but how to weigh it—what counts as a reliable source and what doesn't." But there might just be some ideas here which could be of use in developing or justifying a service.

These are the conference notes from the members of the Engineering Libraries Division of the American Society for Engineering Education.

My note:
I just wanted to share some thoughts and reflections of my past 10-11 years of association with ELD.

I did not know when I attended the 1998 conference in Seattle for the first time, I would fall in love with ELD right away. ELD to me is like a big family with everyone is eager to support each other in a variety of ways. We share our experiences with each other, and in the process, develop a bond of togetherness. We try our best to come up with innovative ideas for implementation that benefit our profession tremendously. In every session, I learn something new. Creativity and talent shown by our members always inspire me to contribute in some creative ways in the field of engineering librarianship.

Information permeates all aspects of our lives. The availability of pervasive media and people's ability to create and share it changes their behavior and expectations. Lee shares the latest research of the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project and the predictions of experts about the impact of internet and mobile connectivity. He also covers the Project's findings about citizen content creation and how these new behaviors could shape the way libraries think about their collections and their relationship with the people formerly known as their patrons.

Lee Rainie is the Director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project, a non-profit, non–partisan "fact tank" that studies the social impact of the internet.
