Feeling Squeezed by Political Pressures Libraries in Cuba face daunting challenges, but are overcoming some of them thanks to the passion and ingenuity of their librarians.(Link)

Information Outlook
February 2012

One of the greatest challenges facing contemporary librarians is information overload, the large and growing volume of content being transmitted to and by organizations and individuals. But imagine working in a library where the opposite is true--where information resources are limited, access to and sharing of information are restricted, and information technology is outdated and unreliable.

Last October, we and several of our colleagues visited the island nation of Cuba and saw firsthand how librarians cope with these and other challenges that are mostly unknown to information professionals in the developed world. We came away with mixed emotions--admiration for the dedicated information professionals who often struggle to meet their users' needs, and frustration over our inability to take even the smallest steps to assist these professionals and improve their lot.

Computers In Libraries
February 2012

This is the inside story of how a handful of volunteers with no budget generated 4 million hits, 400,000 unique visitors, and 365 posts.In 2011, volunteers within the Special Libraries Association (SLA), including the authors, who spearheaded the project, set out to find how information professionals are adapting to the opportunities and challenges of the new knowledge economy. In 2011, every day—including weekends, holidays, and birthdays—we asked one question: How are you “future ready”?

In this article, we share insights that we crowdsourced from our colleagues on how information professionals are preparing for the future. We also document the lessons we learned from implementing a daily, distributed social networking project and discuss how you can apply them in your own environment.
