Subject: [CNI-ANNOUNCE] EDUCAUSE E-Book on Net Gen Students

EDUCAUSE has announced the availability of a new e-book, in which I have
a chapter on Net Generation Students and Libraries. The book is
available at:

Joan Lippincott

Educating the Net Generation, a new EDUCAUSE e-book, will help you
understand the unique characteristics of Net Gen students and their
implications for your institution in such areas as instruction, service,
learning space, faculty development, and curriculum.

The e-book-edited by Diana G. Oblinger, vice president of EDUCAUSE and
director of the National Learning Infrastructure Initiative (NLII), and
James L. Oblinger, chancellor of North Carolina State University-is
available online in PDF and HTML formats. It is downloadable in its
entirety or chapter by chapter-as are a variety of related multimedia
resources-at no charge.

Cites & Insights 5:4 available

  This is one newsletter that I usually read from page 1 to the end.

– Bill Drew

Cites & Insights 5:4, March 2004, is now available for downloading at

The 22-page issue is PDF, as usual–and now requires at least Acrobat
Reader 5, since it includes the text-to-speech support and bookmarks
added in Acrobat 6 and 7. Download 7: it’s faster than 6.

Taking Seth Finkelstein’s suggestion (for tabloid-style marketing) to
heart, here’s what’s included:

* Did NIH back down to Big STM–or was this a reasonable compromise?
Library Access to Scholarship

* Who gets first-name treatment in C&I?
Bibs & Blather

* You call this a community?
Perspective: The Dangling Conversation

* Does anyone care about multichannel sound or ethics?
Following Up

* Chills, thrills, public-domain flicks
Off topic Perspective: Family Classics 50 Movie Pack, Part 1

* Is a short story a book–and would you read Moby Dick on a cell phone?
Ebooks, Etext and PoD

Geez, I really suck at coming up with tabloid headlines. This is
probably the first and last attempt at this!

This issue also has a few more test HTML files–the selective form that
may or may not continue. Go to the home page for those selections (which
I’ll probably leave available permanently):
