PHT Journal Club: November 2009
Among the many needs voiced in the PHT Membership Survey was needing to know from an educational perspective – topics like best practices, benchmarking, ROI, marketing and technologies. These ideas are being incorporated in multiple ways – news & updates on the blog, Annual and Spring meeting planning, as well as in setting up learning events during the year.
Starting with the November issue of CapLits, we will also highlight at least one article addressing librarianship that you might not be aware of – articles which can help either strategically or tactically. These are intended to be not only instructive, but conversational – articles will also be posted here on the PHT blog in order to act as a forum for asking questions and sharing thoughts!
All members are encouraged to submit articles for discussion – suggestions should go to the Professional Development Chair, Praveena Raman (Praveena.email@example.com).
For this month, here are the articles for discussion:
- Cost-Effectiveness and Cost-Benefit Determinations in Special Libraries – White, HS. Special Libraries 70 (April 1979): 163-69. http://www.sla.org/speciallibraries/ISSN00386723V70N4.PDF#page=23
- The Funding of Corporate Libraries: Old Myths and New Problems – White HS. Special Libraries 78:3 (Summer 1987): 155-61. http://www.sla.org/speciallibraries/ISSN00386723V78N3.PDF#page=29
