Integrating Social Media as Authoritative Information into Research Pathfinders

Don't be put off by the title : this is an extremely good post from Unquiet Librarian drawing attention to the value of the social Web 2.0 media as valuable sources of information.
Just take a look at the Netvibes page created for the Iran election.

POdcasts, blogs, twitter, video, and Google Map.
"By using both traditional and emerging sources of authoritative information, we can provide our students a broader menu of information sources for exploration and to ignite learning through research."
