A Good Issue

The new American Libraries is out and I’m pleased to report that I read through an entire issue without getting annoyed by anything, and this was the self-congratulatory conference wrap-up issue.  Either I’m mellowing out or they’re actually getting better.

In all honesty there actually are a few decent, albeit brief articles in this one.  Adam Bennington has one on the value of Wikipedia, that actually includes recomended information literacy lessons using the site.  There’s also a nice article by Scott Nicholson the compares gaming and storytelling activities in libraries, which isn’t the most original idea within the gaming community, but is probably novel in the library context.  Even some of the conference write ups were pretty good, particularly the long summary of Ron Reagan’s opening speech.
