Nicol, Erica Carlson – Public Services Quarterly, 2009
As librarians work to make their services more user-centered, to put forward their best and most approachable faces in order to meet user needs, they are still met with students who approach them hesitantly and apologize for asking them questions, and by students who are obviously intimidated by the libraries in which they work. A good part of…

Guder, Christopher – Public Services Quarterly, 2009
In terms of exploring the status of Second Life (SL) usage in libraries, it would be useful to not only look at how and why the virtual world is being used but also how SL compares to successfully implemented innovations of the past.

Falls, Sarah E. – Public Services Quarterly, 2009
Art libraries face similar issues to other types of libraries during the digital transition but have unique twists driven by the needs of their collections.

Hernandez, Edmee Sofia; Germain, Carol Anne, Ed. – Public Services Quarterly, 2009
Circulation is the library's tireless foot soldier: it serves as the front gate to the library's services and resources. This service point is where most patrons enter and leave; and experience their first and last impressions--impressions that linger. In an age when academic libraries are facing meager budgets and declining usage statistics, this…

The post-2.0 landscape has provided something of a reality check. It is now necessary to translate the familiar series of pleasant-sounding buzzwords into what Stephens describes as "conscious, carefully planned implementations" (2008). User-centered, culture of assessment, learning organization, transparent technology, point of need, community of…

Mahaffy, Mardi – Public Services Quarterly, 2009
Encouraging pleasure reading is not traditionally seen as the role of academic libraries. Those students who take time for reading, however, are better poised to succeed in college. Declining rates in reading among young people are cause for alarm, and many libraries at academic institutions are developing programs to promote this pastime. This…

Matuozzi, Robert N. – Public Services Quarterly, 2009
Though the core mission of a university library--to provide essential support for teaching and research remains unchanged--the library cannot escape budgetary constraints.

This will be my first time authoring this column, and I'm delighted to have the opportunity it presents to explore the intersection of library technology and public services.
