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. 🙂
