1. Year in Review: Top Articles of 2012 (Plus a Free Ebook) | LJ Insider
by Josh Hadro
Everyone does a year-end list, and I don’t like being left out. But I also don’t like lists that are short on context, or worse, short on content. So I channeled my inner Nate Silver and sliced the LJ universe of data in a couple of ways that I hope are more illuminating than just a raw, short list of articles that got a lot of attention in 2012. (For those just interested in the free ebook, see embedded at the bottom an exportable version of the Top 20 Opinion Posts of 2012.)
Here’s what was big in 2012:
Top LJ Posts of 2012
Movers & Shakers 2012
A Guide to Publishers in the Library Ebook Market
Librarians Feel Sticker Shock as Price for Random House Ebooks Rises as Much as 300 Percent
Penguin Group Terminating Its Contract with OverDrive
NY Library To Adopt Ad-Supported Toilet Paper
Tumblrarian 101: Tumblr for Libraries and Librarians
Automation Marketplace 2012: Agents of Change
America’s Star Libraries, 2012: Top-Rated Libraries
Ebook Strategy and Public Libraries: Slow Just Won’t Work Anymore
Princeton Review Student Survey Ranks College Libraries
