Based on a diagnosed need, retrieve, interpret, and/or repackage relevant information resources, and evaluate their use and impact.
Evaluation, evaluation, evaluation. That has been a key theme of my time at SLIM. And it should be.
For the first artifact, I have chosen a bibliography I developed on open source software for Global Information Infrastructure, that evaluated several sources on open source software, a relatively new (but extremely exciting!) movement in the library world. As more libraries look to open source solutions, helpful resources need to be at hand to educate those who are uncertain about open source software’s benefits.
For the second artifact, I have chosen an information architecture analysis on three campaign websites (in 2007) that was written for Structure and Organization of Information Technologies.
