QR codes - Pinterest Board created for libraries and librarians by 23 Mobile Things | De Informatieprofessional | Scoop.it

"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."

Libraries, like other consumers, should be free to buy any published e-content at competitive prices, to keep these items in their collection, and to loan them to their patrons.

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.

eBooks: Kansas State Library Launches Facebook Campaign Against Unfair Practices By Big 6 Publishers | LJ INFOdocket | De Informatieprofessional | Scoop.it

In de VS  is de Kansas State Library met een sociale media campagne gestart tegen oneerlijke praktijken om goed verkopende eBooks uit de bibliotheken te houden. Herkenbaar ook in NL?
The Kansas State Library has launched a social-media campaign against what it says are unfair practices to keep bestselling electronic books out of the hands of libraries and their patrons.

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 for Librarians | American Libraries Magazine | De Informatieprofessional | Scoop.it

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.
