This Week in Best of Publib

Best of Publib Current Topics and Archives

This week  in  Best of Publib includes some elegant and thoughtful discussions on collection development, the value of GSLIS programs and the future of public libraries – some of the topics we will be reviewing include:

  • Topic – Cataloging 9/11 ‘conspiracy’ materials – do conspiracy ‘theories’ belong with the official truth, or in their own section?
  • Topic H1N1 sanitation redux – handwashing and inhaling in the swine flu era – librarians behind the mask.
  • Topic Jobs and People- including many permutations – Favorite Books, Library Education, Library Organizational Structure, Library Job Descriptions and Ethics.
  • Topic – Missing the Boat – future  of librarianship/ technology skills and the ups and downs of the MLS/MLIS – do we know enough?
  • Topic – Nuke the Books – will the California  book microwaving trend catch on across the US,  is it just an isolated fad or a recipe for disaster?
  • Topic Is this thing on? – some libraries are allowing print reference to go out – what does this mean to circulation and collection provenance?
