Duke iPod follow-up
A few days ago, I posted (as did many other bloggers) a note about Duke University giving all incoming freshmen iPods already loaded with relevant content. Cathy De Rosa, the VP of Marketing and Library Services, mine and Alice's boss, and one of the authors of the Environmental Scan visited Duke University very recently to give a presentation on the Scan. David Ferriero, the University Librarian (and soon to become the Director of the Research Libraries at the New York Public Library), told Cathy in a conversation that the iPod was a library-driven initiative. Nothing I've seen written on this yet has credited the library. So, Mr. Ferriero, kudos to you and your staff!
