We are excited to announce that for 2015 we have not one, but TWO DLIG Visionaries! John Burke and Beth Tumbleson of Miami University Middletown were jointly nominated for their vast contributions to distance librarianship. They frequently co-present at national, state and regional conferences on topics that include marketing embedded librarian services, working within your institution’s LMS, and other hot topics in e-learning.
Additionally, John and Beth have co-authored several well-cited journal articles and, in 2013, they published Embedding Librarianship in Learning Management Systems: A How-To-Do-It Manual for Librarians (ISBN 1555708625). Whether you are just getting started in distance librarianship or you are looking for ways to streamline your services, you’ll find inspiration and guidance inside.
We’re looking forward to their presentation at our DLIG Spring Workshop on Friday, May 15th at the Voice of America Learning Center in West Chester, Ohio (just north of Cincinnati).
Please join us in not only congratulating John and Beth, but in thanking them for their service to distance librarianship!
