About this site
Explore, question, teach. This site is an idea board, a lab notebook, a resource aggregation, and a mini-tutorial collection. It’s an exciting time for libraries! Emerging technologies open new modes of knowledge discovery and creation. I explore ways librarians can harness new tech to serve our patrons — and ways we manage old tech, too. I also question technology, particularly regarding usability and patron privacy. Lastly, as a rookie teacher, I incorporate digital literacy into library instruction.
I’m Robin Davis, the Emerging Technologies & Distance Services Librarian at Lloyd Sealy Library, John Jay College of Criminal Justice. I’ve been at John Jay since September 2012. I am also a student in the Computational Linguistics MA Program at the Graduate Center since August 2013. You can read more about me on my personal site. I post my professional presentations there, too.
