Wiley Enriches TED Studies for Instructional Use
by Barbara Quint
TED is a fascinating organization, powered by the internet, of course, but it's completely human in its goals and creations. It relies basically on good minds, often prestigiously good, to come up with really good ideas for achieving really good advances for humankind. TED is Third Millennium Cool. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. has more than 2 centuries of experience in recording and distributing solid, high-quality scholarship. Wiley is Second Millennium Authoritative. Now they are banding together. TEDTalks consist of 18-minute video presentations of new, intriguing ideas. TED has grouped subsets of its TEDTalks into TED Studies for integration into curricular presentations. Wiley will be adding text material designed to enhance instructional use and written by highly qualified experts. And all this, including Wiley's contributions, is still available free to anyone on the open web.

The Information Advisor's Guide to Internet Research

Edited by Robert Berkman, The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research explores, evaluates, and provides critical analysis of free and fee-based information resources, web-based services, and search strategies to help you maximize your time and keep you up-to-date on the internet's role in research.

IAG

In addition to at least one feature by business specialist Berkman, each issue of The Information Advisor’s Guide to Internet Research includes an in-depth article by Ran Hock, author of The Extreme Searcher book series and well-known seminar speaker, who checks out a major web resource.

Four regular columns are rotated; two appear each issue and give readers suggestions for cool internet tools to check out (Brian Smith McCallum, M.L.S., public and academic librarian); sites to turn to for more scholarly research needs (Briana McGuckin, reference and instructional librarian); sites to go to that provide information for the common good (Susan Fingerman, retired librarian instructor, STEM); and sites that give you “big data” facts and figures on a range of topics (Jackie Shane, former reference librarian).
