"Transformational Power of Internet Librarians: Promise & Prospect"

 

"Internet librarians have been revolutionizing the Net for many years, and are poised to transform their communities in exciting new ways. As our technologist and keynote speaker David Weinberger says, we have to “build networks that make us smarter.” Hear about leading-edge tools, strategies and techniques for transforming campuses, communities and organizations at Information Today, Inc.’s 16th annual Internet Librarian. This conference provides the ideal opportunity to gather insights and ideas to ignite our imagination and spark innovation. It showcases creative and exciting new internet technologies and techniques and features lots of opportunities for connections and conversations."

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet?

Should we sacrifice our brains to the Internet? | Library Corner | Scoop.it

One of the greatest effects of the Internet is its ability to capture our attention only to scatter it, ultimately producing a generation whose brains are being better hardwired to scan, skim and multitask, causing a weakening in our ability to read and think deeply in a concentrated manner.
