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.

Concrete Steps Toward a Digital Public Library of America
by Paula J. Hane
The dream of a national digital public library is inching closer to reality. The Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) initiative was launched in December 2010 with generous support from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Since then it has been working to transition from a planning initiative to a fully independent 501(c)(3) organization and has crafted a draft job outline for DPLA Executive Director. The DPLA plans to make the cultural and scientific heritage of humanity available, free of charge, to all via a large-scale digital library.
