It is with great enthusiasm that I announce the appointment of Philip Evan Schreur, currently Head of the Metadata Department, as Interim Assistant University Librarian for Technical and Access Services following the retirement of Catherine M. Tierney. Phil is an expert in modern and emerging metadata standards and issues. Furthermore, he comes with Catherine Tierney’s strong endorsement for his ability to undertake this new role without missing a beat.

Cubberley Education Library has developed a series of orientation modules for incoming students available on the Stanford University Libraries YouTube channel. We created these videos because of faculty interest in online instruction and response to student feedback about the deluge of information provided to them during orientation.
Students have access to Stanford resources starting August 1. However, some, especially masters students, need to start their research as soon as possible. The hope was that if we could supply them with all the information they need to get to these resources, the students could begin their exploration even before they arrive on campus.

Is the battle for information literacy over? Is info lit still library territory? Or should it be under partial or total occupation by some other power?
Join us (and the greater library community) in conversation for this month's Chalk Talk in our traditional August reading-group discussion format to consider the command and control of information literacy over time and into the future.
