7 thoughts on “New Textbook for LIS701”

  1. I’m not exactly thrilled with Chapter 13 referring to us as “the best Googlers in the world” even if the contents go into detail about our nuanced and sophisticated information retrieval skills.

  2. Great! Now my Dean can buy the book, fire me and get a work-study student to do my job [it’ll be 8 years before he realizes that approach won’t work]

  3. Just ordered this for myself. Can’t thank you enough for all your posts about professional reading – you’re really helping me keep up.
