I have a whole pile of science-y book reviews on two of my older blogs, here and here. Both of those blogs have now been largely superseded by or merged into this one. So I’m going to be slowly moving the relevant reviews over here. I’ll mostly be doing the posts one or two per…

It’s very important to get the library message out beyond just the library echo chamber and to the faculty, students and researchers who are out patron community. So I was very pleased to see Elizabeth Brown’s new blog, Social Disruption,…

In this post I like to look forward to next year’s conference and start thinking about some of the sessions I might…

I’m not going to try and…

The press release is here and the about page here. Digital…
