Say Hello to BookThing

Starting in February, we’re going to be running a second parallel program within Nebraska Learns 2.0. The regular program of online “Things” will continue as usual, but we’ll also be running a new program, called “BookThing”.

2012-01-27_10-01-38_929Each month we’ll pick a single title that we feel has relevance to librarianship and/or information theory. Some of the titles will be very obviously related, while others may not seem so on the surface but there is a connection.

Your assignment will be to read the book and answer the following questions:

  1. What did you / what can librarians learn from this book?
  2. How might the focus of this book impact library service?
  3. How might the focus of this book impact library users?

Each title will be assigned a variable number of CE credits based on the length of the book. To earn the CE credits, participants must either write a blog post answering those three questions (minimum of 300 words) or create a video (YouTube or other video service of your choice) of at least three minutes long answering those three questions, which is then posted to your blog.

If you’ve previously read the month’s choice, that’s great! You don’t have to re-read the book, unless you really want to. You are still welcome to participate by writing your post or creating your video about the book. You will only earn CE credit if you’ve not previously earned CE credit for that title.

BookThing was inspired by Michael Stephens.
