    I wanted to like this book more than I did, and I think if I had read it in the context of 10 years ago I would have. Many of the principles seem very obvious in today's educational and library climate though. With that said, the ideas of campus collaboration, technology, and instructional design cannot be under emphasized today in librarianship. It's good to go back and see where it started and how it has evolved.

    I thought I would like this a lot more than I did. I didn't read the whole thing, I wound up occasionally picking it up and trying out one chapter, then coming back another time and trying out another chapter. For some reason, this just didn't resonate with me. Had I stopped to think about the fact that I rarely get through an entire post on the Design Thinking blog, I probably would have realized all of this ahead of time. But to be fair, I don't think I read much about this book before I reque I thought I would like this a lot more than I did.

Had I stopped to think about the fact that I rarely get through an entire post on the Design Thinking blog, I probably would have realized all of this ahead of time. But to be fair, I don't think I read much about this book before I requested it - I expected something different, based on the "blended librarian" mention in the subtitle. (What I expected is an entirely different, equally unanswerable, question.) A lot of the book focuses on collaborations with faculty, but the types of things presented (getting stuff embedded into the CMS, getting more involved in campus collaborations) don't really apply here for a variety of reasons. The chapter on Digital Learning Materials would probably be good to read if we were doing more with screencasting and whatnot, but we're not doing much with it at all (which I think is a shame given how many off-campus students we have). So this might be something to come back to in the future, but for now it's not quite where I am.

    Call it a 3.5. There's a lot to recommend in Bell and Shank's work. Tackling the concerns about academic libraries loosing their important place by engaging in instructional design thinking strikes me as a great solution. There are strong overviews of how design thinking works, how to create library resources like a designer, how to get faculty buy-in. All good stuff. Still, there are some problems with the book. Unsurprisingly, a lot of the examples are now out-of-date. But even though many of Call it a 3.5. There's a lot to recommend in Bell and Shank's work.

Unsurprisingly, a lot of the examples are now out-of-date. But even though many of them have been successfully implemented it's questionable how much design thinking was implemented with them and worries about the relevancy of academic librarianship continues. Further, in such a short work having what is essentially a filler chapter on their online community for blended librarians is a waste. Still, it is worth a read and can be a great starting point for learning about librarianship and design thinking.
