The current peer review process is broken and unless changes are made it will soon die. Do We Still Need Peer Review? examines the evolution of peer review from the earliest attempts by the Church to evaluate scholarly works to the creation of academic peer review and finally to the current status of the process. Gould argues that without an immediate effort by scholars to institute reform, the future of peer review may cease to exist.

The Experiential Library: Transforming Academic and Research Libraries through the Power of Experiential Learning features contributions—in a relatively conversational, practical, and "how-to" format—from various academic libraries across broad educational levels that have implemented experiential learning programs, services, or resources to enhance the learning and development of both students and library employees. As academic libraries and academic librarians are seeking ways to transform themselves and create collaborative synergies within and without their institutions, this timely book suggests exciting ways to integrate experiential learning into the library’s offerings. Ranging from integrated service learning and Information Literacy instruction that "takes the class out of the classroom," to unique experiential approaches to programming like Course Exhibits and the Human Library, the book is a one-stop-shop for libraries looking to expand their repertoire. It will also help them create connections between experiential learning and their institutions' missions and contributions to student success, by grounding these programs and services on a sure methodological footing. Librarians and educators wishing to learn more about the connections between experiential learning/experiential education and academic libraries would benefit from the advice from authors in this book. Covers experiential learning for academic and research libraries Presents diverse aspects of experiential learning in academic libraries across the spectrum of educational levels Offers a one-stop-shop for librarians keen on bringing experiential learning to their institutions Adds to current conversations in both LIS and experiential education, enabling further synergies in both disciplines

Garr Reynolds ist wieder da. Autor des über 150.000 Mal verkauften Bestsellers über Präsentationsde- sign und Vortragskunst. Er zeigt uns in dieser neuen Auflage seines Klassikers "Zen oder die Kunst der Präsentation", dass man sein Publikum mit klarer Darstellung und guten Geschichten am besten erreicht. Garr greift die gängige Vorstellung von "Folienpräsentationen" an und zeigt, wie wir anregende und erfolgreichere Präsentationen gestalten und vortragen können. Er inspiriert mit neuen Beispielen und zeigt Techniken, mit denen wir Lärm und Ablenkung des modernen Lebens ausblenden und die Zuhörerschaft fesseln können. Garr verbindet seine Argumente mit den Lehren des Zen und weist damit den Weg zu einfache- ren und effektiven Präsentationen, die vom Publikum angenommen, erinnert und - vor allem - beherzigt werden. "Presentation Zen änderte mein Leben und das Leben meiner Kunden. Die Philosophie, die Garr in seinem Buch so elegant erläutert, wird Ihr Publikum inspirieren. Denken Sie nicht einmal daran, eine Präsentation ohne dieses Buch zu halten!" (Carmine Gallo, Autor von "The Presentation Secrets of Steve Jobs") "Garr hat hinsichtlich der Art, wie wir über die Macht von Präsentationen denken, Neuland betreten. Noch wichtiger: Er hat eine ganze Generation von Kommunikatoren gelehrt, wie sie ihre Aufgabe besser erledigen. Verpassen Sie dieses Buch nicht." (Seth Godin, legendärer Präsentator und Autor von "We Are All Weird") "Wenn Ihnen Qualität und Klarheit Ihrer Präsentationen wichtig sind - und das sollten sie - nehmen Sie dieses Buch, lesen Sie jede Seite und beherzigen Sie seine Lehren. Presentation Zen ist ein zeitgenössischer Klassiker." (Daniel H. Pink, Autor von "Drive" und "Unsere kreative Zukunft")
