Rosie Peel's curator insight, June 8, 2013 3:07 AM

This is very insightful when creating an effective, authentic and reliable curation collection.  It is resources like this one that I feel will benefit others in their teaching and learning journey.

In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library?

In the Digital Age, What Becomes of the Library? | Future of agriculture knowledge resource centres | Scoop.it

As for virtual librarians, Capizzo suggests that what a real librarian does is more useful. “Would you ask, ‘What makes teachers so vital to schools?’” she asked. “Librarians are committed to promoting lifelong learning in order to create a community of well-informed individuals. Librarians are catalysts to enlightenment for their communities.”

Libraries Changed My Life

Libraries Changed My Life | Future of agriculture knowledge resource centres | Scoop.it
Real life accounts from library patrons whose lives have been changed for the better by libraries.

 

Libraries Changed My Life (LCML) is the brainchild of two librarians from two parts of the country. Ingrid is a children’s and teen librarian from New York City. Natalie is a systems librarian from rural Florida. Together we’re hoping to create a place where people can tell their library stories, and those who are questioning the value of libraries can see their amazing impact. LCML is an independent, grassroots movement to spread library love across the country.

Why we’re here:

Libraries are valuable—and valued. In addition to traditional services like book lending, research help and children’s programs (still the services Americans value most), libraries offer free wifi, technology training, free or low-cost public meeting spaces, affordable printing, access to music and the arts, and other services our neighborhoods need.
