Children’s Librarians in the Digital Age – Part I: A Call to Action | The Digital Media Diet

Children’s Librarians in the Digital Age – Part I: A Call to Action | The Digital Media Diet | eBooks in Libraries | Scoop.it

There is resistance to digital books for kids from many teachers and parents … and in many ways, librarians are no different than others who work closely with children. But there is a growing understanding in the library community that digital content is arriving in a big way, like it or not. And libraries, of all the traditional curators in print, are truly the ideal gatekeepers of quality kids digital content. Librarians are trusted, objective, skilled in evaluating content and part of a large network of potential curators. They are also very concerned about the impact of the digital shift on readers of all ages.
