Blog Holiday

The holiday's are fast upon us and, as with many blogger's on semesters, I will be taking a break from blogging until after the New Year. Until then, here are a few interesting tidbits and postings from a few of my favorite blogs:
  • ACRLog: Here's What You Told Us
    This post includes highlights from the recent ACRLog poll regarding readership. I found it interesting that many of the readers are new/newer librarians. "And ACRLog readers are mostly a group that is newer to academic librarianship as 52% reported being in the profession 5 years or less. Compare that to the 13% of readers in the profession more than 20 years. That’s an area where we can certainly achieve more balance."
  • ALA Techsource: Google goes to college
    I have a google email and account name and know there is much more I could be doing with the available resources. This post declares, "For librarians who spend much of their time liaising with faculty, this (Google apps for education) has the potential to revolutionize the way we interact with them."
  • Read Roger: For the Alias fans in Mourning
    Roger has been providing links and information regarding digital stories.
  • TechLearning Blog: The future of Academic Publishing
    Somthing of interest to many academic librarians the author takes a look at academic publishing as a whole.
  • Walt at Random: Book Publishing in the U.S., Bigger than we thought?
    Great statistics and information regarding "the book." After standing in line at Borders two evenings ago, I'd say the book is in pretty good shape.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and peace to all.
