Editorial: Protecting Public Access to Environmental Information and Saving the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Libraries
"The loss of the information arm of the EPA Libraries will impact not only issues like climate change but also the presence and impacts of chemical in our environment, and other threats to health of our oceans, lands, lakes, and rivers. For now the best thing readers can do is to follow American Library Association's suggestions and contact members of the House of Representatives to address this issue. Go to the website of the House of Representatives at http://www.house.gov/ to locate your representative and voice your concerns over the possible loss of this vital resource. As you read this, libraries are closing or reducing access to their collections, institutional memory is walking out of doors voluntarily and a decades-long reputation of excellence is facing extinction." By Frederick W. Stoss, Associate Librarian: Biological and Environmental Sciences and Mathematics, University at Buffalo, State University of New York.

College Students' Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources
"College Students' Perceptions of Libraries and Information Resources examines the information-seeking habits and preferences of international college students. This report is a companion piece to the December 2005 OCLC report.... Overall, respondents have positive, if outdated, views of the 'Library.' Younger respondents -- teenagers and young adults -- do not express positive associations as frequently. These findings, and more, are valuable insights for anyone seeking to know more about the library usage and perceptions of college students and young people."

    Tuesday, 16th September 2014

    SharePoint is much more than just a document collaboration tool; its social and collaborative elements are continually being strengthened and it now also serves as a social computing platform. But how many companies are actually taking advantage of all of its features?
