About This Site

The Newman Library Idea Lab offers a platform for the exchange of ideas and sharing of information related to library and information science. The library staff at Baruch College can post items that foster professional development and that are relevant to our work here at the Newman Library. By harnessing the collective professional interests of library staff, the posts on this blog feature news and analysis that would benefit any academic librarian.

The staff of the library contribute to several other blogs whose aims and scope differ from this one:

  • Reference at Newman Library offers items that are written by and for staff who provide reference services in the library at Baruch College. Posts on this blog tend to offer updates on library services and resources pertaining to reference services.
  • The Newman Library, Graduate Services blog is written by Linda Rath, the Graduate Services Librarian, for the benefit of graduate students at Baruch College and the faculty who work with them.
