The Blended Librarian Portal
Blended Librarianship is a novel form of librarianship practice first advanced by Steven Bell and John Shank in January 2004. In April 2004 Bell and Shank delivered a three-session workshop on Blended Librarianship [note: more recent webcasts are 90 minutes] that was sponsored by the TLT Group and ACRL. With support from the LearningTimes Network, the Blended Librarian Online Learning Community also became available in April 2004. At the end of 2009 the community had approximately 4,000 members and is still growing. The seminal article on Blended Librarianship appeared in the July/August 2004 issue of College & Research Libraries News.
