Would You Include Libraries?

The Chronicle of Higher Ed’s The Wired Campus blog featured a post last week about a list of the Top 100 Tools for Learning and how libraries were not included. The question posed to “e-learning experts” was What are your Top 10 tools for your own personal learning or working and/or for creating, delivering or supporting learning? I personally think that the Top 100 respondents focused more on the technical production of the e-learning experience, not the inspiration or the intellectual, research-driven component of e-learning. As was pointed out in the comments, the majority of the experts don’t work in academia, so they may not have access to a research library.

I think that they should ask students the same thing. I would expect slightly different results. What do you think?

I'm the library guy. No, seriously, I'm the only male reference & instruction librarian. I also have the pleasure of serving several campus committees, the Academic Staff Assembly and the Chancellor's Task Force on LGBT Issues, among others.
