Combining America's Digitized Libraries, All In One Place : NPR - Digital Public Library of America

Combining America's  Digitized Libraries, All In One Place : NPR - Digital Public Library of America | anz23mthings | Scoop.it
Libraries have been digitizing their collections for years, but the materials can be hard to find. Enter the Digital Public Library of America.

[...]

"Part of a series, Keys To The Whole World: American Public Libraries

Buried in the archives of America's public and academic libraries are historical treasures — old papers, photos and records — that flesh out a detailed picture of our past.

Many libraries are trying to make it easier to find that material by putting digital copies online. But with so many different websites and databases to turn to, it may still require a research degree in Web searching to find anything. This spring, a program launched that aims to put all that great stuff in one place: the Digital Public Library of America.

The DPLA has already drawn scholars like Lincoln Mullen, a graduate student at Brandeis University who is researching the history of religious conversion in the United States. Mullen says the DPLA uncovered some hard-to-find documents at the College of Charleston in South Carolina — handwritten letters by a slave owner, William H.W. Barnwell, in which Barnwell discussed religious instruction to slaves and how the North misunderstood the South in these matters."

Darryl Barnaby's insight:

Library students put forward the case for Digital Storytelling in libraries, excellent references of course. I love Deert Van Den Boogaard, the project manager for DOK Library Conference Center’s  notion of libraries being the place where knowledge, information, culture and stories come together in this form where we can bring to light material supplied from users. Maybe we can use this as the next step on from our Heritage photo hunts. A digital stories programme  teaches technical and literary skills while engaging users and connecting libraries to their communities memory.

10 Golden Rules To Take Your Library’s Twitter Account to the Next Level

10 Golden Rules To Take Your Library’s Twitter Account to the Next Level | anz23mthings | Scoop.it
If you’re reading this, I’m sure you’re already aware how important Twitter is to libraries. 32 percent of Internet users are on the platform, but more importantly, they’re OUR type of Internet users!
Darryl Barnaby's insight:

Do we follow these guidelines? Do we tweet only about ourselves or do we direct users to other third party content? Do we tweet important information in different tweets over a 48 hour period. Do we tweet at different times of the day and include photos embeded in the tweet? Have a look at TweetStats.com to see how we stack up in the retweeting department.
