Joint statement on school libraries and teacher librarians

On June 14 the Australian Education Union, Australian Library and Information Association and Australian School Library Association issued a
joint statement on the importance of school libraries and the role of teacher librarians. It is available in a PDF format from http://www.asla.org.au/policy/ [Joint statement on school libraries and teacher librarians].

This statement has been forwarded to all Education Union branches in Australia, other associated bodies and to the current Government and the Opposition party.

Seth's Blog: "Perhaps your anxiety is specific to magicians"

I found that quote in a strangely-translated instruction manual for an obscure but beautiful trick. But it has wide applicability. Perhaps your anxiety is specific to artists or musicians or to anyone who has to stand up and stand out...

Meet the Bookless Mobile

Meet the Bookless Mobile | 21st Century Tech Tools | Scoop.it

After a month of taking the car apart, rewiring it, and putting it back together, LiLi (short for Library Live) was tricked out with an embedded, articulated 37 inch LCD TV; an Xbox, computer monitor, gadget bar, two 3G Internet-connected laptops; and, yes, external speakers. “They’re not held on with suction cups,” Miller laughed. She even has a few books on board, donated by First Book Canada, but they’re not for loaning, they’re for giving away.
LiLi and Miller started Library Live and On Tour! On April 25, and already they’re booked solid. Their dual mission combines traditional PR venues (parades, festivals, etc.), where Miller preaches the message that today’s library is anything but stodgy, with what she calls “the quieter heart”: delivering library services to marginalized populations at food banks, soup kitchens, transition houses, etc. She registers people for library cards, forgives fines ($1000 so far), teaches senior citizens how to use technology, and so on. The key, she says, is to have a conversation rather than delivering a dissertation, and to meet people where they are – literally as well as figuratively. “I’ve issued kids’ first library cards while their mothers are in line at the food bank,” she says.
