Narabot uploads images to Wikimedia Commons - GCN.com | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

By Stephanie Kanowitz  "Since 2011, the National Archives and Records Administration has uploaded more than 100,000 digitized records. To maintain the effort, the agency is working to develop new technology with the help of Wikipedia and the public.Specifically,  volunteers are working with NARA on Narabot, an upload script to port images to Wikimedia Commons, a sister project to Wikipedia and a repository of free media.[...]


However, archivists don't choose and upload images themselves. They are developing a workflow so that digitized records can flow from NARA's online catalog to the Commons.

They are developing a workflow so that digitized records can flow from NARA’s online catalog to the Commons. The agency has billions of analog textual records that have yet to be archived, so this effort will also help bring them online."

40 Maps That Explain The Internet

40 Maps That Explain The Internet | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

The internet increasingly pervades our lives, delivering information to us no matter where we are. It takes a complex system of cables, servers, towers, and other infrastructure, developed over decades, to allow us to stay in touch with our friends and family so effortlessly. Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet — where it came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world.

Here are 40 maps that will help you better understand the internet

Deb Nystrom, REVELN's curator insight, August 22, 10:00 AM
Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

IFLA to build libraries’ capacity to positively influence digital information policy through new International Advocacy grant | World Library and Information Congress #wlic2014 | Digital Collaboration and the 21st C. | Scoop.it

"New grant will help build capacity within the profession to advocate for positive policy change to support public access to digital information in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation Global Libraries Initiative.

 

LYON, – 19 August 2014

 

World Library and Information Congress in Lyon – The International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) today announced a new grant for international advocacy activities in support of access to digital information. The investment will develop libraries’ ability to react to emerging issues in the digital environment, increase awareness within the public library community of the link between this emerging environment and their work, and create capacity to undertake advocacy activities in support of policy change.

Public access to ICTs, copyright and licensing or eBooks and eLending are just some of the issues being tackled by policymakers at national, regional and international levels, often without satisfactory results for libraries and their users. As a result, libraries can often find themselves having to work in policy environments that are not sensitive to their issues and services to the public in the digital information environment are degraded."

Selena Prior's curator insight, August 21, 7:44 PM

This is a really compelling article that challenged me to reflect on the challenges of leadership.

Miklos Szilagyi's curator insight, August 22, 12:25 AM

It's a very intersting topic and mostly I undersign it... though it's culture-dependent too... the context, the connotation you might have by reading e.g. this title... that  might  count too...  coming from a region where story-telling might be a substitute of lots of things, among other things, lying, or - as one of my cross-cultural researcher friend said once - saying "no", I have some reserves... but even in the Anerican culture, whether the executives of Enron e.g. weren't (surely not authentic but) excellent story-tellers? If you are with me on that... 

 

Of course, the message goes better into the deep with emotions and what is better than the story-telling like emotion-vehicle? of course... but to say that the future leader's main characteristics are courage and story-telling capacity is, I don't know, IMHO, not only simplistic but simply not enough...

 

Starting by the main point what story he/she should so well and authentically tell? What the content is of this famous story? I would start here when drawing this profile... and yes the sellability, the motivation-power, the capacity of  being able to attract the followers, to be able to align their energy are also important but somehow the content of all these has a certain priority in my mind...

S'Marie Young, CPCC's curator insight, August 22, 12:00 PM

This article highlights some of the qualities successful leaders of the present and future must cultivate, such as courage, resiliency, permeability and transparency. These qualities create a powerful presence, one that people can trust.


Presence is knowing yourself, your values, passions and goals, and being able to communicate them authentically. Presence is also being empathetic to the aspirations of others.
