The Blended Librarian: John D. Shankl Center for Learning Technologies, Penn State Berks Lehigh Valley College
Library Journal, v130 n5 pS19 Mar 2005
Early in his library career, John Shank realized that not only were students choosing Internet resources over library, resources, but Faculty members were, too. Shank is now widely recognized as a librarian who's likely to change that. In his current positions as instructional design librarian at Penn State Berks--Lehigh Valley College and director of the college's Center for Learning Technologies, he has an unusual platform for building Faculty-library partnerships. He directs the college's Technology Grant Curriculum program, in which 30 Faculty have participated; manages its technology-enhanced curriculum initiative grants; and assists more than 80 faculty in adopting the course management system, through workshops and instruction. This article briefly describes the current work of John Shank.
