10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic]

10 Tips To Build A Responsive Website [Infographic] | 404 BC -- Finding the Missing Links | Scoop.it

Want your website to look great on smartphones, tablets, PCs and even TVs? Learn how to go fully responsive.

 

The Web and the mobile browsers remain one of the top ways that users interact with websites and if they have trouble on their smartphone, there is a good chance they are not coming back.

That’s where responsive design can help.

Responsive design is a concept where you build your website once and then format it so it can adapt to any screen size that accesses it. Designers use HTML5 and CSS to build the sites and set parameters so the content will resize itself whether the user is in vertical or horizontal viewing mode, on a tablet, desktop or smartphone or even a screen as large as a television...

MOOCs and Libraries: New Opportunities for Librarians

"This video is of the "New Opportunities for Librarians: What Happens When You Go Behind the Lines in a MOOC?" session at the 18-19 March 2013 "MOOCs and Libraries: Massive Opportunity or Overwhelming Challenge?" event hosted by OCLC Research and the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. As we learn about new platforms and new modes of working, librarians are going into the trenches to see for themselves how MOOCs work. How do library resources and research skills fit into MOOCs and other online learning environments? Where do library collections and service fit? How can we use the experience gained in MOOCs to think about the future of the library in an evolved teaching environment? Featuring Marjorie Hassen, Director of Teaching, Research, and Learning Services, University of Pennsylvania Libraries; Sarah Bordac, Head, Instructional Design, Brown University; Jennifer Dorner, Head, Instruction and User Services, University of California Berkeley; and Lynne O'Brien, Director of Academic Technology and Instructional Services, Duke University. See the slides from this session at http://www.youtube.com/redirect?q=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.oclc.org%2Fcontent%2Fdam%2Fresearch%2Fevents%2F2013%2F03-18moocs-opportunities.pptx&session_token=A1Eu6Th7tly6ob5UAKEKumCdPRp8MTM2NjExNzQ1MEAxMzY2MTAzMDUw and see the MOOCs and Libraries event page at http://www.oclc.org/research/events/2... for a complete overview of this event.

4 ways open access enhances academic freedom

4 ways open access enhances academic freedom | 404 BC -- Finding the Missing Links | Scoop.it

Are politicians stealing our academic freedom? Is their fetish with open access publishing leading to a "pay to say" system for the rich?

Will the trendy goal of making publicly financed research freely available skew the world of scholarship even more in the direction of the natural sciences?

I don’t think so. But it took me a while to get there. (...) - by Curt Rice, Blog "Thourghts on university leadership", March 27, 2013

BishopBlog: Blogging as post-publication peer review: reasonable or unfair?

BishopBlog: Blogging as post-publication peer review: reasonable or unfair? | 404 BC -- Finding the Missing Links | Scoop.it

In a previous blogpost, I criticised a recent paper claiming that playing action video games improved reading in dyslexics. In a series of comments below the blogpost, two of the authors, Andrea Facoetti and Simone Gori, have responded to my criticisms. I thank them for taking the trouble to spell out their views and giving readers the opportunity to see another point of view. I am, however, not persuaded by their arguments, which make two main points. First, that their study was not methodologically weak and so Current Biology was right to publish it, and second, that it is unfair, and indeed unethical, to criticise a scientific paper in a blog, rather than through the regular scientific channels.

11 Creative Ways to Build Links

11 Creative Ways to Build Links | 404 BC -- Finding the Missing Links | Scoop.it

Ricard Lloria's curator insight, April 2, 2013 7:15 AM

Conclusion

The possibilities of link building are endless. You can build links in many different ways, you just have to be creative. What I’ve learned over the years is the best link builders are the creative ones.

Just look at Matt Inman, no one would have thought that he would rank a site for online dating, but he was able to do it in a matter of months because of how he built links.

All you have to do is think outside the box as the list above is just scrapping the surface. What other creative ways are you building links?

yukiyinyin's comment, April 5, 2013 12:45 AM
About buliding links, it is a big knowledge, we need to learn large. Also, need to cultivate creative thinking.

La técnicas que se muestran para crear links y tener éxito en el intento son aplicados constantemente de manera exitosa, además de ser maneras creativas son bastante viables. Pienso que son excelentes tácticas para crear tráfico dentro la web y tu negocio.

Academic Librarianship: Complete Archive of College & Research Libraries Now Freely Available Online (1939-Present Issue)

Academic Librarianship: Complete Archive of College & Research Libraries Now Freely Available Online (1939-Present Issue) | 404 BC -- Finding the Missing Links | Scoop.it

The online C&RL archive now contains the complete contents of the journal from its beginnings in 1939 through the current issue.

 

C&RL archival contents from 1939 through 1996 were digitized through the generous volunteer efforts of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Library. The library’s Digital Content Creation department performed scanning and metadata creation for the approximately 340 back file issues of the journal in 2011 and 2012. The digitized files were added to the journal’s online presence with the financial assistance of the ACRL Friends Fund.

 

C&RL will become an online-only publication in Jan. 2014.

After starting with a brief history of storytelling this post provides great resources as it explores digital storytelling in primary and secondary education, for higher education, for business and creative professionals, and storytelling for a new generation.

In the section for primary and secondary education you will find links to great resources at the University of Houston which has a site dedicated to "educational uses of digital storytelling" as well as a site from the National Writing Project that provides many resources. 

A number of resources are also available in the section on higher education as well as as the section for business and creative professionals, which also suggests several Web 2.0 tools you might use to tell your story.

In September 2011 I returned to work after a year on maternity leave. Many things needed sorting out, not least my digital presence at my home institution, which had switched to a content management system that seamlessly linked to University College London’s open-access repository, “Discovery.” The idea was we should upload open-access versions of all our previously published research, and link to it from our home pages, to aid in dissemination. (...) - by Melissa Terras, Journal of Digital Humanities, Vol. 1, No. 3 Summer 2012

"Today we are excited to announce that Mendeley is joining Elsevier!"
for $100M?

For a suppose partnership is quite a considerable amount; I’m open to make some new friends, as always, special they  are willing to pay me $100M :)

 

To the ones that find this figure reasonably high (like I did initially), here’s a “heads up”: Elsevier, more than “just” acquiring Mendeley software, it’s “acquiring” Mendeley COMMUNITY (and the value we’ve been adding all this time).

Pierre Levy's curator insight, April 9, 2013 8:00 AM

Henning says Mendeley will continue to source data from different places — not just focus on what’s published or owned by Elsevier. “If people want to source the latest research on neurobiology, it wouldn’t make sense to limit this,” said Henning. “Elsevier will help us by enriching our content, but when it comes to other publishers it will also increase the transit routes into them.”
