MOOCs - Opportunity or Threat for Librarians?

MOOCs - Opportunity or Threat for Librarians? | Digital libraries and new technologies | Scoop.it

by Leigh Bunton

Libraries and information professionals have been adapting to the impact of online resources for some time now. In my own academic library, we have a Mobile Technology Group to monitor developing trends and ensure that staff are equipped to create, access and advise upon anything from Blogs and Instant Messaging; QR codes, Wikis and RFID, to Smart phones and the mobile version of the library website. There is still a physical connection with our users, however, with a campus full of students attending lectures, accessing online resources provided by the library, receiving research advice, making enquiries at service desks, borrowing books and filling every library space when exams and deadlines loom.

CGS Library's insight:

Setting up a mobile technology group sounds like an exciting advance that a Library could use to enhance its research advice to students

Another challenge for librarians, but should definitely not be shunned!

Gettysburg Workshop's curator insight, October 12, 2014 1:33 AM

A good informative graphic, but I feel it overstates the current quality of offerings of  Campus Created Apps.  Also, the slow process of eText adoption slows this.  This comment is part of a tech demonstration.
