If you’ve seen my earlier posts about The New Digital Scholar: Exploring and Enriching the Research and Writing Practices of NextGen Students, you’ll recall it as a book we published this spring (on behalf of ASIST) that I’m particularly taken with. The editors, Randall McClure and James P. Purdy, were so great to work with, and delivered such an excellent text, that I immediately started scheming for a followup. (Success! — but that’s a story for another time.)
A handful of days ago, Library Journal had some really nice things to say about the book. (Don’t miss the “verdict” rendered by Paul Stenis.) This follows some other nice things LJ’s Barbara Fister said back in April.
I’m very happy to see The New Digital Scholar receiving the praise and attention it deserves. Please join me in congratulating Randall and Jim and their contributors, and if you have friends and colleagues who might be interested in this stellar new title I hope you will bring it to their attention.
Onwards & Upwards!
