The Iraq Study Group Report – Blog Edition

I read about this on Laura Cohen’s blog, Library 2.0 – An Academic’s Perspective. http://liblogs.albany.edu/library20/2007/01/blogs_for_current_events.html.

What a great idea!!! The Institute for the Future of the Book has created this blog version of the Iraq Study Group Report. Reviewers are contributors to the blog and can add their comments to each section of the report. In this way, an annotated version is created. Click here to look at it. The Iraq Study Group Report

She goes on to suggest a couple of ways to implement this in the library. My mind is already spinning. We could use this for our Coffee With the Times program and invite faculty and students to comment on current articles in the Times. Imagine a blog edition of a faculty member’s latest lecture. The possibilities are endless.
