About Kim Duckett
Kim Duckett is Principal Librarian for Digital Technologies and Learning at North Carolina State University where she takes a lead in pushing the library's resources, services, and librarian expertise into online learning environments. She is a truly "blended librarian" -- equal parts librarian, instructional designer, and learning technologist. Most recently, her work involves serving as co-project manager and product lead for NCSU Course Views (branded Library Tools), a system that combines dynamically generated and librarian-authored content to create course-centric set of library resources for 6000+ courses. She's also integrally involved in a number of e-learning resource development projects that focus on providing more "back story" to how information is created and accessed. She feels passionately about giving students more context for understanding the economics that surround information and the technologies used to access it. She was selected as a 2009 Library Journal Mover and Shaker (coming soon!).
