Below are some links to various reference articles, blog posts and newsletters about reference initiatives.
IGI Global’s ALIS newsletter is a brand new resource that gives a good taste of IGI’s library and information science content. Their inaugural issue focuses on reference.
Welcome to the first issue of IGI Global’s ALIS newsletter. Unlike similar newsletters—which serve as information vehicles keeping librarians in the know about what’s on the publishing horizon—ours is a value-added tool that
gives a pre-publication, no-strings-attached glimpse into our library and information science content. The eight articles featured here in abbreviated form touch on the most pressing issues surrounding the discoverability of reference content, including the changing face of information literacy and user behavior, shifting roles for publishers, and hidden new opportunities for reference librarians.
I continue my series on what reference librarians do. Today I am reporting on real reference questions to illustrate the kind of work we do now. I have kept all client identifying information confidential.
The latest issue [March 2011: 72(3)] of College & Research Library News is now freely available on the web.
Reference and information literacy staff might find the article Promoting privacy: Online and reputation management as an information literacy skill particularly useful.
