Doug Johnsons Library and Technology Laws
Doug Johnsons Little List of Library and Technology Laws
As far as I can tell, cynicism, pessimism, or hypocrisy have never served any teacher or student well. But a little clear-eyed honesty well-stated certainly can. Harry Truman said it best: "I don't give them hell; I just tell them the truth and they think it's hell."
Well, it's not really my intention to give anyone hell, but here are a few "truths" that may seem a bit curmudgeonly. I believe these are my own, but if anyone recognizes the same sentiment stated in a similar fashion by someone else, I'd like to know about it.
As one example from this list:
The Drill Bit Rule: You don't buy a drill bit because you want a drill bit; you buy it because you want a hole. You don't buy technology because you want technology; you buy it because you want a more effective school.

Ask a Librarian
Why ask a librarian? Because librarians have the answers! Public libraries in the UK run reference and information services staffed by librarians who are experts at finding information for you. Whatever the subject of your enquiry, our librarians will come up with an answer or guide you to other sources of information that will help you.
Your electronic reference library Ask a Librarian is online 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Our digital enquiry service is no substitute for a face to face consultation with the librarians at your local reference library, particularly if you need advice on how to research a complex subject, but it is sometimes more convenient. We're accessible at all hours of the day and night and we'll deliver a response to your enquiry direct to your desktop. The Ask a Librarian service has added a new electronic dimension to the information services which public libraries have always provided and will continue to provide.
