Link Roundup

An interview with the man behind Google Scholar. (Hat tip:

How many books should you start?, by Tyler Cowen, who is on the economics faculty at George Mason University. More LIS folks should read econ blogs like Marginal Revolution. One of the big movements in economics right now is behavioral economics—drawing on both psychology and economics to understand why people do what they do with the resources they control, including their time. I think that if more LIS folks understood the incentives that people respond to, they'd have an easier time designing services that get used and selling their services to their funding authorities.
