McHaney, Roger – Stylus Publishing, LLC, 2011
Two seismic forces beyond our control--the advent of Web 2.0 and the inexorable influx of tech-savvy Millennials on campus--are shaping what Roger McHaney calls "The New Digital Shoreline" of higher education.

Solway, David – Academic Questions, 2011
This author asserts that the problem of reading among today's twittering, digital-minded, and half-literate generation of students cannot be solved by the vaunted hypertext revolution in screenal reading practices as advocated in contrived and facile efforts like George Landow's influential "Hypertext: The Convergence of Contemporary Critical…

Seifert, Kelvin – Online Submission, 2010

Roth, Wolff-Michael – Reading Psychology, 2010
Reading multimodal (popularized) scientific texts is studied predominantly in terms of said-to-be-required technical decoding skills. In this article I suggest that there are other interesting approaches to studying the reading of multimodal (popularized) scientific texts, approaches that are grounded in social psychological concerns. These…

Mitchell, Erik T. – Journal of Web Librarianship, 2010
One of the first big shifts in how libraries manage resources was the move from print-journal purchasing models to database-subscription and electronic-journal purchasing models.

The recent creation of Web 2.0 applications dramatically alters the ways in which universities recruit and educate students.
