Movie trailer: The Global Librarian – Updated with slides

I am doing a video lecture for Dr. Michael Stephens LIBR 200 –
Information Communities class with the subject:
The Global Information Professional.

Here is what you can expect:

Key points:
Global librarianship enhances the dynamic capabilities of libraries
23 Mobile Things – an example of global librarianship
Supporting learning on all levels -> learning as strategy
Getting started – Connect – Unconnect – Reconnect

I was playing around with iMovies –  trailer feature 🙂 Fun!

My slides – With correction of some embarrasing typos:

New book: Information Services Today: An Introduction

 Information Services Today An Introduction“As a collection of 39 chapters addressing 7 key areas within the LIS field, I truly believe the success of this book lies within its historical context of the field, its current relevance to today’s complex LIS environment, its identification of essential and emerging issues, and its wealth of resources, tips, and strategies that will guide LIS students and professionals in their academic and professional pursuits. Promotion of the book has already begun and includes a combination of brochures and flyers, advertisements, and press releases across various platforms.” Writes editor Dr. Sandra Hirsh from San Jose State University School of Information.

I am excited about this book because there are so many great authors and interesting subjects – and because I have a chapter in the book myself. Chapter 38: Global Learning Networks.

My slides from Bergen, Norway: Global librarianship, Digital skills & 23 Mobile Things

I was lucky to have the chance to speak to and talk to Norweigan librarians at Neptunseminaret in Bergen today – Thanks for having me. Since Scandinavian languages are very alike (Finland excluded!) – A lot of the slides are in Danish and a few in English.
