Our Changing Role No more Buffet model!
The library is not just a place to get stuff, it is a place to make and share stuff. Think outside the box about the concept of “collection.” Your collection--on- and offline--includes student work. Collection might include: ebooks, audiobooks, open source software, streaming media, flash sticks, digital video cameras, laptops, and much more! You help students use bookmarking sites and RSS feeds. Joyce Valenza
