JAMA Network | JAMA | The Evolving Role and Value of Libraries and Librarians in Health Care

Lin's insight:

"Changes in medical information and technology are revolutionizing health care. As clinicians try to incorporate research into practice through comparative effectiveness research and decision support, they increasingly depend on technology to bring evidence to the bedside to improve quality and patient outcomes. Integrating current information into the processes of shared decision making and continuous learning supports the application of evidence in clinical decision making. Health sciences libraries and librarians have an increasingly important role in providing that information to clinicians as well as to patients and their families."

Startup challenges textbook market by packaging open access materials | Inside Higher Ed

Startup challenges textbook market by packaging open access materials | Inside Higher Ed | Library in Digital Age | Scoop.it

Textbook publishers have almost boundless disdain for Boundless Learning, and it's not hard to see why.

The company, which unveiled an upgraded, public iteration of its software Wednesday after a year in beta, offers college students free, open versions of textbooks that would normally cost them scores if not hundreds of dollars. It describes what it does as "textbook replacement."

What is the future of the library? YouTube video

"This thesis won the National Corobrik Architectural Thesis Award 2010. I have made the entire Thesis Document available for download here: http://www.activeingredient.org/pdf/Everywhere%20is%20Here%20-%202009.pdf


This architectural animation explores the question of the role of the public library when digital information is everywhere and is everything. What happens to the spaces of books? and how should traditional spaces of information change for a digital world? Even better... in the developing world, how could the library nurture an information society, when people don't have access at home? Could the future of the library be an urban information bar? or a theatre of knowledge? and what does that really mean anyway?

 

This animation is just an introduction to my architectural masters thesis called EVERYWHERE IS HERE:

I will be blogging some random stuff at www.everywhereishere2009.blogspot.com

Ebooks Choices and the Soul of Librarianship

Ebooks Choices and the Soul of Librarianship | Library in Digital Age | Scoop.it

Here’s my conclusion: ebook models make us choose. And I don’t mean choosing which catalog, or interface, or set of contract terms we want — though we do make those choices, and they matter. I mean that we choose which values to advance, and which to sacrifice. We’re making those values choices every time we sign a contract, whether we talk about it or not.
