Truth Lies and the Internet: Update

It seems Joyce Valenza and I were not the only ones surprised by the omission of librarians from the recent Demos report Truth, Lies and the Internet. Not that I actually expected we would be; contrary to the media stereotype of the mousy librarian, most librarians I know are very capable of standing up for themselves and their users when necessary.

Carl Miller, one of the Demos researchers, has graciously responded to librarian’s concerns and is inviting comments from school librarians regarding their involvement with digital fluency. It’s heartening that he has responded so quickly, and I am working on my response as we speak. đŸ™‚

About thegreatnorthernlibrarian

I am a newly qualified librarian and law student currently living in Scotland. The name of this blog was inspired by my extreme northern location at the time of the blog's creation. Savvy readers will recognise that it is also a Twin Peaks reference. I do not necessarily categorise myself as "great."
