My Freshman Year: What a Professor Learned by Becoming a Student

Another item from Stephen’s Lighthouse is a new book written by a college professor who went back to school.

Twelve OhioLINK schools either have it or have it on order. Of course they are all checked out right now.

Faculty and the Net

I use Bloglines to keep track of a number blogs. Stephen’s Lighthouse (blog by the VP of Innovation at Sirsi) pointed to an article published in the September 2005 First Monday, Professors’ Online: The Internet’s Impact on College Faculty by Steven Jones and Camille Johnson-Yale. The article discusses who professors use the Internet for research and to interact with their students.

Library Instruction Wiki

Saw this on the ILI discussion list…

The Library Instruction Wiki was designed to help librarians learn from one another. Use the wiki to find handouts, tutorials, suggested reading, and more!
