Around the Web: 18 recent reports relevant to libraries and librarianship | Future of School Libraries | Scoop.it
I’m always interested in the present and future of libraries. There’s a steady stream of reports from various organizations that are broadly relevant to the (mostly academic) library biz but they can be tough to keep track of. I thought I’d aggregate some of those here. Of course I’ve very likely missed a few, so…

At Local Libraries, Teens Pursue – and Publish – Their Passions ~ Educator Innovator

At Local Libraries, Teens Pursue – and Publish – Their Passions ~ Educator Innovator | Future of School Libraries | Scoop.it

by Maureen Kelleher

 

"Rachel Kaplan, a 16-year-old from Northbrook, Ill., a Chicago suburb, started plotting mysteries almost as soon as she could hold a pencil. Her short stories have won regional awards in Scholastic’s annual art and writingcompetition. Last week, she became an e-author, published on Scribd and in the iBooks store.

 

"Serena Dinh, an 18-year-old college freshman in Albany, N.Y., started playing violin at age 9. A few months ago, she taught herself a little guitar. But it wasn’t until this month that she wrote her first complete, original song.

 

"Both teens followed their passions at the library, during Teen Tech Week 2014."

Sarah McElrath's insight:

School libraries need to work hard to have the policies, resources, staffing, and setting to encourage this type of independent learning.

For many of us, at least some of those things are lacking.

In the Library with the Lead Pipe » How Well Are You Doing Your Job? You Don’t Know. No One Does.

In the Library with the Lead Pipe » How Well Are You Doing Your Job? You Don’t Know. No One Does. | Future of School Libraries | Scoop.it

In Brief: The outputs librarians are measuring are not directly associated with specific practices that lead to improved lives for the people we serve. If we cannot make that connection, we have no way of knowing how well we are doing our jobs. This article suggests four measurable outcomes that libraries and librarians could use to make sure their activities are improving their constituents’ well-being, and also use in comparing their effectiveness with each other, allowing less effective libraries to learn from libraries that are achieving greater levels of success.
