“All Roads Seem to Lead to Libraries and Librarians”

“All Roads Seem to Lead to Libraries and Librarians”

This month’s School Library Journal cover story is an interview with HLSL director John Palfrey: Excuse Me, Do You Speak Digital?

John and SLJ’s Christopher Harris have a great conversation about his research and “hypothesis of wonderfulness,” the role of online hangouts, the term “digital natives”, copyright law and downloading, and, of course, the importance of libraries and librarians.

Born Digital: Understanding the First Generation of Digital Natives written by John and co-author Urs Gasser is the One Book, One Conference selection at the American Association of School Libraries’ annual conference in Charlotte, NC in November.
