"QR Codes ("Quick Reference" Codes) are essentially 2-dimensional barcodes. They can contain hundreds of times more data than conventional 1-dimensional barcodes. Initially created for use in the shipping industry, they are gaining popularity for marketing to people with smart-phones."

Ebook Platforms in Libraries: A new report in the works

November 2nd, 2012 · by Mirela Roncevic · 2 Comments

I am in the midst of developing a library technology report for ALA TechSource (a unit of the publishing department of the American Library Association), due out in the Spring of 2013. The focus: ebook platforms in libraries. As I am amassing information about various products from publishers and aggregators on the specifics of each platform, I’ve decided to open it up to a broader audience in the early stages of the writing process and obtain feedback from all who may benefit.

Publishers and aggregators: Please take a moment to read the proposed contents of the report (below) and let me know where your products fit and why. I plan to cover a variety of resources.

Librarians: What are your main frustrations when selecting ebook platforms? Please take a moment to consider if the details I plan to include about each product will help you make informed purchasing decisions.

Jump start your professional learning AND kill some zombies along the way! #win http://t.co/YTnZ94I0dB #tlchat #edchat #edtech #nced

 

"...here are a few ways to jump start your professional learning :

1. Focus on the LEARNING not on the credit

2. Learn to love the hashtag

3. Join professional organizations

4. Think outside the box

5. Make time for learning

6. Follow your passions

7. Rethink failure

8. Take it from theory to practice

9. Share. Share. Share

 

[...]

"As Zombie Fighters we can't be afraid to have honest conversations with our colleagues who are stuck.  Like my friend and colleague Jennifer Northrup said in a recent post on her blog, there's no need to be confrontational or to go on the attack.  However, we can't be passive either and hope that Zombie Librarians will simply be inspired by our stellar examples."

Library Patrons Want More E-books, But They Want to Keep Print Books, Too

Library Patrons Want More E-books, But They Want to Keep Print Books, Too | De Informatieprofessional | Scoop.it
Americans are all for more technology resources in libraries, so long as they don't have to fork over space occupied by print books.
Annemarijs's insight:

Wensen van gebruikers van openbare bibliotheken in de VS tonen oa aan dat hoewel de vraag naar bijv. eBooks stijgt men niet bereid is om daarvoor de gedrukte versie op te geven. Veel van de wensen komen bekend voor en zullen ook voor de Nederlandse situatie gelden, maar waar ze ook in de VS mee worstelen is het dilemma voor welke zaken moet de realisatie van de wensen dan plaatsmaken?

Libraries and Their Landscapes - Library Journal

Libraries and Their Landscapes - Library Journal | De Informatieprofessional | Scoop.it
Cicero was suggesting a garden in the library, where he could spend his time in a natural setting, reading, writing, and conversing with his colleagues. This ancient idea can also apply to contemporary thinking about libraries and their landscapes. How do we thoughtfully place a library in the landscape? And how can we create outdoor spaces that work in concert with the library interior?

When a new public library is planned, it is not only the design that must be considered. The placement of the building in its setting (its landscape) and the design of the landscape together with the building are fundamental parts of the planning process. Unfortunately, architectural endeavors sometimes focus almost exclusively on the building itself. How the building might relate to its setting is often an afterthought. As a result, important opportunities to enhance both the building and its site are overlooked.

Personal branding oftewel welke uitstraling qua kennis, deskundigheid en ervaring wil je naar buiten stralen / profileren? Niet echt een issue dat tot nu heel erg populair was onder informatieprofessionals, maar nu zoveel bibliotheken op de rand van sluiting/opheffing staan, misschien toch eens over nadenken of daar niet meer een op de toekomstgericht tintje aan gegeven kan worden. American Libraries Magazine, the magazine of the American Library Association, delivers news and information about the library community.

Practical Tips For Online Privacy | LISNews - from a librarian's perspective

Blake:

"Staying Safe Online" that will cover a million and one tips on how to keep you and your computer safe.

Privacy is a relative term. That is, the things that I consider important to my privacy, someone else might not care about. As librarians we usually key in on Confidentiality Threats. We want our patrons records safe. We also don't share that information with ANYONE else. In general, we are fierce about protecting our patrons’ privacy. This is something that has always set us apart from everyone else. Amazon won't do it. Google won't do it. Do I even need to say Facebook won't do it? People who come into the library or use our web sites don't worry about what's going to happen with their information (or at least they shouldn't need worry about it). They should know we are doing our best to guard their privacy. Keeping all our IT resources secure should be a large part of guarding that privacy."
