Llandrillo Library's insight:
Fewer and fewer school in Wales have full time librarians (if any at all) but the benefits are immense. We should be taking some of these lessons and map them to our activities in FE and HE too.

Principles, Values, and the Academic Library in the Age of Trump | Technology and Learning | Library and Information DigiLIt CPD | Scoop.it
A view from outside of the academic library.
Llandrillo Library's insight:
This was originally shared by a contact on LinkedIn - we've noticed a big increase in advocacy based shares on professional platforms since the election and the Brexit result. Stressing that libraries are an inclusive space where factual, objective and non-partisan information can be found should be a central tenet of our professional promotion activities - especially in FE and HE. Librarians are the original fact checkers!

I, Daniel Blake reveals the rich complexity of literacy – and why it matters

I, Daniel Blake reveals the rich complexity of literacy – and why it matters | Library and Information DigiLIt CPD | Scoop.it
Pencil by default: the digital skills demanded by the welfare system may baffle Daniel Blake, but he is resourceful, creative and willing to work.
Llandrillo Library's insight:
The issues of literacy and digital literacy raised in this film are evident to many working in the public library sector. It is also evidenced in the FE/HE sector, where access to resources and even teaching time (blended learning) is affected by your literacy/digital literacy skills. This is a thought provoking piece and should lead us all to reflect on our place in the relationship between our users and the information they need.

Pushing the Social Media envelope in 2016 | Library and Information DigiLIt CPD | Scoop.it

You might ask "Why would a library get involved in social media?" The simple answer is communication. To make the connection we strive not only to be understood in our library, but also to truly understand the needs of our patrons.


Via Karen Bonanno
Llandrillo Library's insight:

To reach users and non users we need to be communicating on the platforms that they use and share messages on their peer network.

Fake news, real violence: 'Pizzagate' and the consequences of an Internet echo chamber | Library and Information DigiLIt CPD | Scoop.it
Millions of people have read about a crazy conspiracy theory called "Pizzagate." An untold number of them actually believe it. One person apparently took matters into his own hands and showed up to the pizza place that the conspiracy theorists say is at the center of the web with guns.

We need to be supporting our learners to identify and call out fake news stories - to understand echo chambers and the reasons false information is published in this way. Could you confidently to these things too? This link was originally shared through the LIS-INFOLITERACY JISCmail list
