Two cool Atlas related pieces of news:
1. MIT Press has decided to do a second print run of the Atlas of New Librarianship. Note this is not a second edition (seeing as it was just released last month) so no new matieral.
2. But, speaking of new content for the Atlas, I’ll be adding some new Agreement Supplements to the Atlas Website (and the iPad app in a little bit). These were produced by some amazing doctoral students here at Syracuse. They will be going live over the next week or so, please check back. Agreements include:
- Web 2.0
- User-Centered Design
- Issues of Institutional Repositories
- Community as Collection
- Hybrid Environments
These supplements provide additional resources and perspectives (sometimes differing) of topics discussed in the Atlas. For faculty out there, they also make a great assignment and I’d love to work with you to get them on the site. As always, they are really points to start conversations about the profession.
I’ll mark them as “proposed” supplements – meaning they are open for discussion and consideration for any future editions of the Atlas.
