I worked with Chris, the “owner” of Feral Librarian, for a number of years. Closely for perhaps the last 2 years at Stanford. She is a very intelligent person with great insights on a number of topics. Yes, she’s a librarian, but she sees the bigger picture quite well. That’s a rare combination – specialization and competency in one focused discipline and the ability to look at a much broader scope.
This post is notable for a lot of reasons. First, check out the full list from Beloit College. Second, note that even I was surprised with #34 – [Today’s students] have always been able to read books on an electronic screen.
Always? That’s a long ways from “usually” or “often.” Wow.
