Links last week - 080615

The following is a selection of links collected from 9th to 15th June. Shared via Google Reader, FriendFeed and Twitter. Organised roughly by library category: Systems and the elements - People, Information and Technology.

Theme for this week? Quality. Some outstanding posts. They must have put something in the water...


People (and cognition)

Information (and process)
