For years Reddit has been used by journalists as a source of stories and ideas — but most outlets have preferred to keep their addiction quiet. Now, thanks in large part to President Obama, it doesn't have to be their dirty little secret any more.

Here is the textbook that I created/curated for teaching my New Media Technology class during the Spring semester of 2012 at Hannam University's Linton Global College. I took great effort to give credit where it is due. I aimed to show my students how they could access enough free info on the web that was of equal or greater value than the wonderful information found in expensive textbooks. Feel free to share and please support the true authors of this book in any way you can (money, likes, blog comments, links, etc.) I am simply the currator of this content.

The library has unveiled CatQuest, a new discovery tool for the Library Catalog and [most] of the libraries' electronic resources. As a reminder..... this tool provides an additional way to search for books, films, journal articles, newspaper articles, etc. provided by the UVM Libraries.

The Quest to Put the World's Libraries OnlineThe AtlanticBut as with any new frontier, formidable challenges attend exciting possibilities—and nowhere has this been more apparent than in the efforts of the Digital Public Library of America.
New key player in organizations: the “data scientist.” It’s a high-ranking professional with the training and curiosity to make discoveries in the world of big data. The title has been around for only a few years. (It was coined in 2008 by one of us, D.J. Patil, and Jeff Hammerbacher, then the respective leads of data and analytics efforts at LinkedIn and Facebook.) But thousands of data scientists are already working at both start-ups and well-established companies. Their sudden appearance on the business scene reflects the fact that companies are now wrestling with information that comes in varieties and volumes never encountered before.

“Thinking twice about our use of digital media, what our practices are doing to us, and what we are doing to each other, is one of the most important priorities people have today—and Douglas Rushkoff gives us great guidelines for doing that thinking. Read this before and after you Tweet, Facebook, email or YouTube.” —Howard Rheingold
By linking different representations of related concepts in the Semantic Web, libraries can draw from that Web and enrich their own metadata and benefit locally. What is even more important is that they are able to really and seriously reach out to many more users in typical internet “places” like social networks, portals, and search engines. This will not only help them fulfill their public mission but also increase traffic back to the library’s site, helping them to monitor and prove their relevance in today’s’ internet based information universe.
