Time for Some Reading

"Colleges Going Cybertech" from USA Today [via Youth Specialties] While this article doesn't mention academic libraries, is anyone using the library as a means of recruitment for high school students?

Mike's Funnies -- Good clean jokes [via Youth Specialties] Free subscriptions.

Finally, this next article is from the Winter 2005 issue of Reference & User Services Quarterly. The Impact of low-level skills on information-seeking behavior: Implications of Competency Theory for Research and Practice, by Melissa Gross. The research provided shows why we have so much resistance to learning the research process from students who believe they are competent and provides suggestions for taking action. Read it; it will change the way you approach instruction.
