A Weblog about the Invisible Web and Information Availability on the Web
New Year’s Resolution
This is my first post in 2006. I wish everyone a Happy New Year. My new year’s resolution should be “get a move on and get the job done”. So, I get back to work; I still have got a lot to do. Wish me luck!
Today I had a workshop at the main library of our university about Current Awareness Services (CAS) and Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) in academic libraries. In this workshop I tried to introduce a number of simple and practical steps that we can employ in our libraries to develop these services and provide our users with more relevant and pertinent information resources. I believe librarians should not necessarily wait for the advanced and perfect infrastructure facilities to develop these services. In contrary, we can put these services into operation through a number of creative and simple steps. As a result we will be able to make a positive difference in the level and usefulness of what we do.
