Wonderful world of blogs …


… or how am I going to keep up! So many interesting things to read, so little time …

Courtesy of the M Word a blog post on ACRL wanting a researcher to review the literature on the value of academic libraries with a view to providing “ACRL members with tools and strategies to demonstrate the value of academic libraries to their institutional leadership”. So this is very much along the lines of the emerging theme of measuring the impact of what we do-  as reported by my colleague Heather in her LIANZA conference blog. “Value” is an interesting concept, I have been talking about it lately but more in terms of building it into our promotional messages. Value in terms of ROI (return on investment) is another concept that libraries are starting to look at.

And also thanks to the M Word, I’ve discovered another blog called In The Library With The Lead Pipe Great looking blog, substantial posts, reference lists and lots of comments! Three very interesting posts for starters:

Stepping on Toes: The Delicate Art of Talking to Faculty about Questionable Assignments

Sense of self: Embracing your teacher identity

Outreach is (un)Dead
