Libraries on the Move

Google has digitized the Scripps Institution of Oceanography Library, the world’s largest oceanography library. The digital materials include books, journals, and expedition reports dating to the 18th century. Press Release, May 20, 2010, http://scrippsnews.ucsd.edu/Releases/?releaseID=1073.  

The New York Public Library has partnered with Hathi Trust to add its digitized books to their collection. The NYPL is the 27th library to join the partnership. Press Release, May 24, 2010, http://www.nypl.org/press/pressrelease/2010/05/24/nypl-takes-giant-steppreserving-its-digitized-collections.

The Welch Medical Library at Johns Hopkins University is moving its 10 clinical and public health librarians from serving as liaison librarians for their assigned departments toward becoming embedded informationists within those departments. The embedded informationist service model comprises customized information services delivered at the researcher’s location and at points of research, teaching, and clinical care. The embedded model enables the informationists to answer questions faster, to fill information needs more effectively, and to act as information experts on research and care teams.
