Origgi, G., Holmes, S. and Arikha, N.: Reputation: What It Is and Why It Matters (Hardcover and eBook) | Princeton University Press
"Reputation touches almost everything, guiding our behavior and choices in countless ways. But it is also shrouded in mystery. Why is it so powerful when the criteria by which people and things are defined as good or bad often appear to be arbitrary? Why do we care so much about how others see us that we may even do irrational and harmful things to try to influence their opinion? In this engaging book, Gloria Origgi draws on philosophy, social psychology, sociology, economics, literature, and history to offer an illuminating account of an important yet oddly neglected subject. Origgi examines the influence of the Internet and social media, as well as the countless ranking systems that characterize modern society and contribute to the creation of formal and informal reputations in our social relations, in business, in politics, in academia, and even in wine. She highlights the importance of reputation to the effective functioning of the economy and e-commerce. Origgi also discusses the existential significance of our obsession with reputation, concluding that an awareness of the relationship between our reputation and our actions empowers us to better understand who we are and why we do what we do. Compellingly written and filled with surprising insights, Reputation pins down an elusive subject that affects everyone."

"Reframing Library Instruction: Applying Metacognitive Pedagogy to One" by Heather K. Beirne and Nicole Montgomery
"Metacognition, or the ability to think about one’s own thinking, is being adopted across higher education. Teaching and Learning Centers are offering campus wide workshops and initiatives, nationally known speakers are being brought in, and the language is even being incorporated into QEP plans. But can these same strategies that are being embraced by subject faculty be used to assist students in the research process? The session will discuss metacognition, what it is, some of its key strategies, and how it is being applied in higher education. The presenters will provide successful (and unsuccessful) examples of metacognitive pedagogy from their own library instruction. The presenters and participants will brainstorm together, using facilitation methods, about how metacognitive strategies can add value to library instruction, even helping to address the threshold concepts of the new ACRL Framework. Extended discussion and brainstorming will surround the different levels of collaboration with faculty, helping participants create a take away list of good, better and best concrete strategies for incorporating metacognitive pedagogy into their library instruction."

Metaliteracy: Reinventing Information Literacy to Empower Learners | ALA Store
"Today's learners communicate, create, and share information using a range of information technologies such as social media, blogs, microblogs, wikis, mobile devices and apps, virtual worlds, and MOOCs. In Metaliteracy, respected information literacy experts Mackey and Jacobson present a comprehensive structure for information literacy theory that builds on decades of practice while recognizing the knowledge required for an expansive and interactive information environment. The concept of metaliteracy expands the scope of traditional information skills (determine, access, locate, understand, produce, and use information) to include the collaborative production and sharing of information in participatory digital environments (collaborate, produce, and share) prevalent in today's world. Combining theory and case studies, the authors Show why media literacy, visual literacy, digital literacy, and a host of other specific literacies are critical for informed citizens in the twenty-first century Offer a framework for engaging in today's information environments as active, selfreflective, and critical contributors to these collaborative spaces Connect metaliteracy to such topics as metadata, the Semantic Web, metacognition, open education, distance learning, and digital storytelling This cutting-edge approach to information literacy will help your students grasp an understanding of the critical thinking and reflection required to engage in technology spaces as savvy producers, collaborators, and sharers."

What can you do to help with troublesome knowledge? Librarians and Threshold Concepts The Ubiquitous Librarian - The Chronicle of Higher Education
"But… I am not interested in applying this to “library instruction” (aka instruction we do about using library resources and developing research skills) but rather, to the enterprise level of learning across campus. Let’s frame it this way: how can the library help students cross through the difficult thresholds and learn critical concepts that will enable them to succeed with their chosen major?" Annotated link

The Alexandrine Dilemma | the human network
In fact, because the library is universal, library science now needs to be a universal skill set, more broadly taught than at any time previous to this. We have become a data-centric culture, and are presently drowning in data. It’s difficult enough for us to keep our collections of music and movies well organized
