R.I.P. Sally Ride, an astronaut who changed the future

R.I.P. Sally Ride, an astronaut who changed the future | Collegecate | Scoop.it

When I was in 2nd grade I did i book report on a biography of Sally Ride.  Thanks to her, and other women like her, I never questioned that I could be anything I wanted to be when I grew up.  Lately, reading Neil DeGrasse-Tyson, I've been thinking more and more about the space program.  I hope young women and girls today still learn about Ride and decide to dedicate themselves to science and space.

How Do We Want Students to Feel About the Library? - The Ubiquitous Librarian - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Collegecate | Scoop.it

"Let’s link the library to feelings of accomplishment rather than to collections. Let’s play the empathetic card, rather than the info lit one....The relationship has to be forged before they arrive and then reinforced once they get to campus."

 

This is one of a couple of pieces I want to explore about creating library habits.

Inflammatory Statement: Transliteracy is Information Literacy for latecomers | Pegasus Librarian

The difference between Bibliographic Instruction, Information Literacy, and Transliteracy.

"Telling me that I should stop doing that stuffy old Information Literacy, with its emphasis on where exactly to click in which databases, tells me that you never really understood Information Literacy in the first place. It’s not called Database Literacy for a reason, you know."

In wake of Pottermore releases, Harry Potter piracy fought by community, Mike Shatzkin reports | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics

In wake of Pottermore releases, Harry Potter piracy fought by community, Mike Shatzkin reports | TeleRead: News and views on e-books, libraries, publishing and related topics | Collegecate | Scoop.it

And this is why DRM is useless

 

From the article: "Apparently, Potter ebook files started showing up on file-sharing sites pretty much right away after they opened. But before they could serve any takedown notices, Charlie says the community of sharers reacted. They said “C’mon now. Here we have a publisher doing what we’ve been asking for: delivering content DRM-free, across devices, at a reasonable price. And, by the way, don’t you know your file up there on the sharing site is watermarked? They know who you are!” And then the pirated content started being taken down by the community, before Pottermore could react. And very quickly, there were fewer pirated copies out there than before."

Shakespeare's long-lost Curtain Theatre has been unearthed in London

Shakespeare's long-lost Curtain Theatre has been unearthed in London | Collegecate | Scoop.it

I would like to point out 2 things about this article:

1) The reason people think of the Globe theater first when the think of Shakespeare is because it was the theater he built.  This was true long before Doctor Who wne tthere on TV...some people read.

2) There is a Museum of London Archaeology...not the London Museum of Archaelogy, but rather a museum dedicated to stuff they dig up in London.MY city doesn't have it's own archaeology museum.

Aurora, a most ignored princess IMO, is fantastic in her matter-of-fact pose. I like Belle and Jasmine too. I'm disappointed that Cinderella is a knife master, I think she'd do better with some sort of found-object martial art.
