Some great, creative videos from the staff of the Allen County Public Library in Indiana:
I’m attending the DeLange Conference on Emerging Libraries–an excellent conference with lots of prominent speakers–but I have to share this pet peeve. The phrase that has been used by two different speakers to describe the environment we’re currently living in: “the brewing perfect storm of opportunity.” I count three mixed metaphors there. Blech.
This semester I am teaching a new course in the University at Buffalo Law Librarianship Program: Teaching Legal Research. No, it’s not an Advanced Legal Research course: its all about learning to teach legal research. We’ll be working with a wide variety of teaching techniques, from classroom lecture and discussion, to audio and video, to online instruction using CALI exercises, blogs, and wikis. If you’d like to listen in, I’ll be podcasting my lectures at http://tlr07.classcaster.org.
