Don’t mind me–I’m just clearing out my library-related RSS feeds:
- Library Journal has published its 2008 Placements & Salary Survey.
- On a not unrelated note, my alma mater (University of Michigan School of Information) has just released its 2007 MSI Employment Report. I think the breakdown provided here by industry does put some of the comments about UM in the Library Journal article into better perspective.
- The Social OPAC now has its own website.
- The LII has merged into the IPL.
- Librarians–especially those who work with teens–are buzzing about the Pew Internet & American Life report on teens and video games. Most of the report’s observations aren’t news to those of us who work with teens, but it is gratifying to see our anecdotal experiences backed up by broader research. I liked The Shifted Librarian’s take on this report the accompanying report on the civic potential of video games.
I suspect I had more interesting library-related links, but they were probably lost when I accidentally hit the “mark all read” button in Google Reader last week. Oops! (Wish there was an undo button for that.)
