From Goucher College, Workshop 2 in Participatory Design

We’re just getting starting, and I wanted to provide you with some links to resources that will be useful to you for participatory design:

the AnthroLib Bibliography, a bibliography of resources related to user research and paticipatory design especially in higher education and academic libraries;

the AnthroLib Listserv, for folks who’ve been in the CLIR workshops and others in higher ed and academic libraries;

the AnthroLib Map, a map of projects that have extended the work done at the University of Rochester and taught in the CLIR workshops.

I’m going to share a number of resources from the workshop today and tomorrow, so stay tuned for more, as it happens,

Cheryl LaGuardia About Cheryl LaGuardia

Cheryl LaGuardia always wanted to be a librarian, and has been one for more years than she's going to admit. She cracked open her first CPU to install a CD-ROM card in the mid-1980's, pioneered e-resource reviewing for Library Journal in the early 90's (picture calico bonnets and prairie schooners on the web...), won the Louis Shores / Oryx Press Award for Professional Reviewing, and has been working for truth, justice, and better electronic library resources ever since. Reach her at claguard@fas.harvard.edu, where she's a Research Librarian at Harvard University.
