A delight!

Intriguing Networks's curator insight, July 20, 2013 5:41 AM

This is such good news but why does the National portrait Gallery not follow suit? I hope they will !

Intriguing Networks's comment, July 20, 2013 5:43 AM
Great News should be a requirement for all collections surely funded by the public?

#smwMuseSocial – Defining and Measuring Social Media Success in Museums and Arts Orgs

#smwMuseSocial – Defining and Measuring Social Media Success in Museums and Arts Orgs | Digital Humanities | Museums | Libraries | Scoop.it

Social media practitioners from local museums and arts organizations gathered for a lively discussion about the value of social media to our institutions. Are our current social media practices engaging online communities to their greatest potential? What outcomes are we hoping to achieve? And how can we better evaluate the success of our efforts and take our social media engagement to the next level?

Our panelists shared recent research about how social media has transformed the arts in America and presented lightning talks on the social media outcome that matters most to them.

John Shank's comment, February 14, 2013 3:05 PM
Great question! I thought of the term as I was reading the above article this morning and did a quick Google search and did not find any relevant uses of the word. Although, I am thinking the term Creatorium might work better and sound better. The basic meaning behind the word is similar to the terms imaginarium or exploratorium. With a twist instead of only inspiring imagination and exploration let enable creation of ideas, tools, and products digital and physical. The library could become a community hub or nexus for innovators, educators, and inventors taking data,information, and knowledge then using tools provided by the library to create or turn their ideas into books, videos, and now with 3D printers create models and working products.

Another way to reduce student costs -- use the library!
