Reboot Your LIS Career? According to marketing whiz Mitch Joel, author of Ctrl Alt Delete (Business Plus, 2013), we’re all sort of hanging out in uncharted territory these days, or as Joel puts it “purgatory.” New media technology has forever changed both the way we do business and the way we communicate with each other. Even those companies (and individuals) willing to adapt aren’t quite sure which way to adapt to ensure their future viability – or employability. Joel’s goal is to provide a reboot roadmap for businesses (Section 1) and individuals (Section 2) that will help them successfully navigate future opportunities. To quote the author, …there are bigger forces at play: technology, connectivity, mobility, analytics, data, creativity, commerce, publishing, and more that will continue to reshape and change how we do business. So what does all of this mean to those of us tap-dancing as fast as we can to keep our LIS skills aligned with emerging career opportunities? Ctr Alt Delete: Reboot Your Business.

Museums and the Web | the on-line space for museum informatics Division of Library & Information Science Blog “Likes” are lovely, but do they lead to more logins? Developing metrics for academic libraries’ Facebook pages A lot has changed in the five years since the Rutgers University Libraries set up our first Facebook page. When the university librarian approved our initiative in fall 2006, academic libraries’ outposts on Facebook appeared to be far from common. In the article “Do you Facebook? Networking with Students Online,” Brian Mathews noted that he conducted a global search and found “a handful of other libraries had created profiles” on Facebook.1 So as we launched the Rutgers University Libraries’ Facebook presence, the effort felt like pioneering into relatively unchartered territory. In 2011, the norm has changed, and now it is far more common for academic libraries to have Facebook profiles. In this article I propose a set of simple measures that an academic library can use to gauge the impact of their Facebook activities and offer some suggestions on how to increase the viability of a library’s Facebook page. Are fans lining up?

It also means developing some strong technology skills to support that ‘blendedness.’ In thinking about all the technology skills that are useful for blended librarianship, I came up with 5 particular skills that I consider essential to the profession. There are many more technology skills that I could have listed, but I chose these specifically because I think they represent the breadth of skills needed for blended librarianship. Here they are: PowerPoint. Like this: Like Loading...

Rijksmuseum Digitizes & Makes Free Online 210,000 Works of Art, Masterpieces Included! We all found it impressive when Amsterdam’s Rijksmuseum put up 125,000 Dutch works of art online. “Users can explore the entire collection, which is handily sorted by artist, subject, style and even by events in Dutch history,” explained Kate Rix in our first post announcing it. ” “Not only can users create their own online galleries from selected works in the museum’s collection, they can download Rijksmuseum artwork for free to decorate new products.” But we posted that almost two and a half years ago, and you can hardly call the Rijksmuseum an institution that sits idly by while time passes, or indeed does anything at all by half measures: think of their creation of Rembrandt’s Facebook timeline, their commissioning of late Rembrandt canvases brought to life, or of their accommodation of terminally ill patients visiting one last time.
