  • As media formats change…so do the terms for literacy --- information literacy, digital literacy, media literacy and a new term I am hearing – transliteracy (See http://librariesandtransliteracy.wordpress.com) Print is, of course, still important- but are they always the best choice for learning? This giant dictionary is now an antique!

    62. 62. Embedded Librarians can be Physical or Virtual “The embedded librarian combines proactivity and energy with strong working relationships, close alignment with team goals and objectives, shared responsibility for outcomes, and full membership in the team.” Shumaker, D. (2012). The Embedded Librarians. Online, 36(4), 24-27.
    63. 63. The library and the librarian are not synonymous. Take a risk and go where no librarian has gone before! “It may be that the great age of libraries is waning, but I am here to tell you that the great age of librarians is just beginning. It’s up to you to decide if you want to be a part of it.” ~T. Scott Plutchak
