Libraries = Education: An Interview With Valerie Gross
by Dave Shumaker
Valerie Gross is president and CEO of the Howard County Library System in Maryland. Shortly after she was hired in 2001, a sympathetic member of the county council told her that the library system was "not even on the radar." To change this attitude, Gross formulated a strategy based on the principle Libraries = Education. The results were impressive: massive increases in library use and funding, designation as the 2013 Gale/Library Journal Library of the Year, and five-star ranking as a Library Journal Star Library for 5 consecutive years.

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).
