Lourense Das's curator insight, February 17, 2013 5:23 AM

From Prof. Woody F. Horton: Colleagues, it is with a great deal of both gratitude and pride that I call your attention to our ePub announced today by UNESCO entitled "Overview of Information Literacy Resources Worldwide."  Many of you either contributed one of the 42 language lists that are contained in this publication,or advised me on the content and format. The publication is available both in ePub format and as a pdf file.  I will be back in touch with you to solicit your ideas for how to use this tool to help ordinary citizens worldwide, who are not fluent in English, and would prefer to search for information literacy resources in their own native languages.  If you are a member of this Google Discussion group but do not see your native language in the database
in the ePub, please communicate with me because we intend that as many
languages as feasible be added to the database going forward, and also put in place a tool so that the "starting entries" can be kept up-to-date, perhaps using a wiki. We would welcome volunteers to prepare lists of IL resources in languages which are still missing from the database.

Here in brief is the UNESCO announcement:

"WEEKLY NEWSLETTER SERVICE

E-pub brings together worldwide Information Literacy resources
available in 42 languages

15.02.2013 - A collection of Information Literacy (IL) Resources from
around the world is now available on UNESCO’s website in e-Pub and PDF
formats. The publication titled “Overview of Information Literacy
Resource Worldwide” is divided into 42 language lists and includes
selected resources – from websites, books, journals and other kinds of
publications – that were provided by contributors from different
countries and institutions and compiled by Dr Forest Woody Horton Jr."

A more complete UNESCO article describing the publication background
and content appears if you click on the 3rd link below, and the pdf
and ePub file links appear on the right side of the screen on the
webpage containing the full article, under "Files."  Also if you wish
you can contact Irmgarda Kasinskaite, the senior UNESCO staff
programme officer in charge of the IL programs of UNESCO.

Pinterest vs. Facebook for Visual Social Supremacy

Pinterest vs. Facebook for Visual Social Supremacy | 287mwm | Scoop.it

"Visual content has become one of the most desirable types of content -- because it's so darn easy to consume. But it's not enough to just create beautiful, funny, engaging visual content ... marketers are now wondering where the best place to promote that visual content is.

 

Just about every major social network allows marketers to share visual content in some capacity, but that doesn't necessarily mean that particular network is the best medium for visual promotion. And in a world of hundreds of social networks, marketers need to optimize their time to promote the most appropriate types of content on the most appropriate channels.

 

Until now, it's seemed like Pinterest really takes the cake in terms of the best social network for visual content promotion. But recently, Facebook launched a little something called Collections, which is a Pinterest-style feature that allows users to add products to a wishlist or curate them into a particular list. Sounds kind of like Pinterest, doesn't it"?

Wrong. Not any more. At least, not wholly, as an updated study from those good people atSearchmetrics has revealed just how important social media signals are to a strong SEO ranking, with well-positioned URLs almost always having a high number of Likes, shares, tweets and +1s.

"Fandrop, a new content sharing site, is debuting today to help you find out what’s trending across the web. The site surfaces things like tweets and Facebook posts, YouTube videos, images from sites like imgur, articles, web pages, and more. In some ways, it’s similar to other social networks and social sharing sites, in that you can friend and follow other users, create profiles, build collections of content, and post things you find to the Fandrop platform.

All the content on Fandrop’s site is user-submitted, either through an online form, bookmarklet, or through the import of feeds from Facebook, Twitter, for example.

When you go to the homepage today, it’s a mix of clickable distractions – funny videos, gifs, photos, posts, music videos and more. You can explore different categories such as “celebs,” “tech,” “sports,” or “aww,” the latter which features a lot of cute animal photos and videos. You can also create an account in order to build and share your own collections. When you find something on the site you like, you can vote it up Digg-style, or share it to social networks.

Viral Facebook post revives library - Tribune-Review

Viral Facebook post revives library - Tribune-Review | 287mwm | Scoop.it

Last month, Sheila May-Stein, a librarian assigned to Manchester this year, posted a photo on Facebook with a comment that the library had only 40 usable books in its fiction section.

She wrote: “Feeling overwhelmed and despondent when I see pictures of iPad labs and brand-new books and all the other privileges white suburban kids have when I compare it to what the kids at this school have. They are learning every day that they aren’t worth clean, fresh paint and unstained carpets and books that aren’t 65 years old.”

May-Stein’s posting went viral, drawing donations from as nearby as Bethel Park’s Lincoln Elementary School, where students raised money to buy books about football, and from as far away as Manchester, England, where a woman said she felt an affinity with a neighborhood with the same name.
