Credo Reference Tests literati to Enhance Library Information Literacy
by Barbara Quint
How do you train today's and tomorrow's knowledge workers to use online content effectively? How do you teach them to evaluate content sites accurately? Credo Reference ha already massed a collection of high-quality digital reference tools from about 80 publishers worldwide. Now the company has begun beta testing a new service called literati by Credo that will improve the use of its own and non-Credo sources, educate users, and enhance the role as well as the image of librarians. Beta testing will extend through November, and a launch of the new service is scheduled for January 2012.

Mine the Web Like a Journalist
by Paula J. Hane
I recently had the opportunity to sit in on two webinars aimed at journalists. One was sponsored by the Donald W. Reynolds National Center for Business Journalism, titled "Beyond Google: Mining the Web for Company Intelligence." The other was a "LinkedIn for Journalists" training session, which is offered frequently by Krista Canfield, senior manager of corporate communications at LinkedIn. Both proved to be well worth my time. I thought I might share some of the best suggestions I picked up that are applicable for many researchers, journalists or not.
