23 Things - D12 Learning 2.0 - start

I actually began this project in April, inspired by many things. One was this quote:

ACRL releases essay on technology and change in academic libraries

The full essay and an expansion of that conversation are at

The summit identified three essential actions libraries must take to achieve the necessary transformation and remain vital forces on campus in the years ahead:

* Libraries must evolve from an institution perceived primarily as the domain of the book to an institution that users clearly perceive as providing pathways to high-quality information in a variety of media and information sources....

I'd found the "23 Things" list at the Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County blog.

I viewed the "7 1/2 Habits Tutorial" at that point. Here is the list, for reference:

7 1/2 Habits of Lifelong Learners
Lori Reed
Training specialist, Public Library of Charlotte & Mecklenburg County

1. Begin with the end in mind - determine what your goal will be
2. Accept responsibility for your own learning
3. View problems as challenges
4. Have confidence in yourself as a competent, effective learner
5. Create your own learning toolbox (books, classes, technology, mentors, friends)
6. Use technology to your advantage (should be a tool to make your life easier)
7. Teach/mentor others
7 1/2. Play, be curious, read!

I like their "Learning Contract," as well:
