What Librarians Lack: The Importance of the Entrepreneurial Spirit

What Librarians Lack: The Importance of the Entrepreneurial Spirit | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it

I have been around libraries for a while now.  I have been an administrator at both a public and academic library.  I have done some consulting work.  I write, publish, and present on a variety of library topics.  I am preparing to embark on teaching LIS at St. Catherine University in St. Paul, MN.  From all of this experience, I have reached one important conclusion!  Libraries and librarians, by in large, lack entrepreneurial spirit.

Feedly. Your News. Delivered.

GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Big data- "“Information management has gone ‘cross-platform content delivery’, and this line of innovation hasn't ended yet. For example, mobile devices offer location-based context to select the right data, and augmented reality and mashups,” said Mr. Buytendijk. “However, mobile content delivery is only a part of the impact on information managment. Mobile devices will develop to become a prime source of data collection.”

Business analytics are moving forward at an astonishing rate. Yet, analytics are not limited to business use only. Increasingly, analytics will become available for consumers too. One example of this is the use of graph analysis, which helps determining rich relationships between data elements."

Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation - Avoiding a lost generation June 2013 - EY - Global

Young entrepreneurs pinpoint five imperatives to help spur jobs and avoid an entire lost generation.
GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Entrepreneurship & Innovation- "3. Create a culture of risk-taking

Treps are crucial job creators, and their governments need to promote this. In fact, 50% of young treps think this action would have a high impact on supporting entrepreneurship in the G20. Society, too, needs to be more tolerant of failure and recognize treps as providers of innovative products.

As youth unemployment reaches crisis levels, schools and universities can help. "The key is to start earlier and to really engage students in unlocking their entrepreneurial mindset, whether or not they are going into large employment opportunities or starting their own businesses," says Amy Rosen, Chief Executive of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE)."

GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

TNCs - Transnational wealth:  "

In early 2013, Oxfam reported that the fortunes made by the world’s 100 richest people over the course of 2012 – roughly $240 billion – would be enough to lift the world’s poorest people out of poverty four times over. In the Oxfam report, "The Cost of Inequality: How Wealth and Income Extremes Hurt Us All," the international charity noted that in the past 20 years, the richest 1% had increased their incomes by 60%. Barbara Stocking, an Oxfam executive, noted that this type of extreme wealth is “economically inefficient, politically corrosive, socially divisive and environmentally destructive...We can no longer pretend that the creation of wealth for a few will inevitably benefit the many – too often the reverse is true.”   The report added: “In the UK, inequality is rapidly returning to levels not seen since the time of Charles Dickens. In China the top 10% now take home nearly 60% of the income. Chinese inequality levels are now similar to those in South Africa, which is now the most unequal country on Earth and significantly more unequal than at the end of apartheid.” In the United States, the share of national income going to the top 1% has doubled from 10 to 20% since 1980, and for the top 0.01% in the United States, “the share of national income is above levels last seen in the 1920s.”"

GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's insight:

Scott Silverman blogs - " . . . Are there any contributions academic libraries in particular have left to make to the shaping of critical thinking? I will not say I have a comprehensive answer. I cannot even say that I have an original answer. But I am certain that libraries are more relevant to and prominent in the knowledge eco-system than ever. Conventional wisdom holds that books—once the almost exclusive object of critical thinking—are losing luster and utility; with content becoming a commodity anyone can access (often at high cost), the local efforts of librarians should shift to the unique, to special collections and archives. I agree that treasured materials require and deserve intensive effort. Despite the relentless, wholly commendable expansion of digitization, physical books are not being rushed headlong to the dustbin of history, and librarians are partnering with—sometimes prodding—authors and publishers to achieve a comprehensive copyright, economic and technological environment working to the mutual advantage of creators, scholars and learners."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s curator insight, May 3, 2013 12:49 PM

SCUP will soon publish the monograph, "Research on Learning Space Design: Present State, Future Directions," by Susan Painter, Janice Fournier, Caryn Grape, Phyllis Grummon, Jill Morelli, Susan Whitmer, and Joseph Cevetello. This team received the 2012 Perry Chapman Prize to support their work.


From the introduction to the report from the 2012 recipients:


"Although several hundred articles and a number of books on these topics had been written by the fall of 2012, the field is still at an early stage of development. A first step in creating value from this existing body of work is to gather, summarize, and evaluate how far the field has come in identifying the elements that will allow us to thoughtfully design learning spaces and evaluate their impact. This was the purpose of the project being reported here: a literature review undertaken by a small group of researchers and campus architects/planners who had applied for and been awarded a small grant from the Perry Chapman estate, administered through the Sasaki Foundation in honor of M. Perry Chapman and administered by the Society for College and University Planning."


GIBS Information Centre / GIBSIC's curator insight, May 7, 2013 2:41 AM

Library spaces - "The researchers used mapping exercises, student-gathered photographs, surveys, interviews, and design charrettes. Their findings paint a detailed picture of students’ study lives that has implications for institutions that want to make the library relevant to those lives: 

Students are highly scheduled and on the go all of the time. There is no “average” day for a student. Academic, social, recreational, work, volunteer, and personal activities are all in the mix and each day is different. They eat on the go and carry their belongings with them, although they don’t carry their laptops. Students’ schedules are “offset” from librarians’ schedules. Students study in the library, at home/in their dorms, and in the computer lab. They use computer technology throughout the day and in multiple locations.

 The researchers also reported results from the design charrettes that show student needs and preferences:

Flexibility: spaces that meet a variety of needs. Students want to move easily among the spaces. Group and individual study areas are important, as are spaces to relax, a café, and computing and media viewing areas.   Comfort: spaces that provide comfort and have a “family room” atmosphere. This includes easy access to coffee and food, natural light, and an environment with soothing textures, sounds, and great warmth. The space should support sitting, slouching, putting one’s feet up, and lying down.  Technology: technology and tools should be intuitively integrated into the space. This includes high-end technology such as media players, smart boards, and plasma screens as well as low-tech items such as power outlets, staplers, and three-hole punch tools.Staff support: Students rarely made distinctions between the types of staff they needed in the library; rather, they expected to interact with a generic staff member who would be able to provide reference assistance, check out materials, answer IT questions, and brew a great latte. There were very few mentions of a reference or information desk. Librarians cannot assume that they know how students do their academic work or what they need.Resources: students included library materials in their designs, ranging from academic and reference books to leisure magazines and DVDs.  " Ackn.

In Praise of Traditional Libraries

In Praise of Traditional Libraries | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it

Some librarians like to disparage something they call the “traditional library.” The reasons vary depending on circumstances, and understanding the criticism is made more difficult because no one seems to agree on what a “traditional library” is.

 

This article speaks of traditional libraries rather than “the traditional library” because libraries vary widely, and the only fair way to discuss academic libraries is in generalities. There might be one single library somewhere that would embody everything “traditional,” but most libraries are amalgamations of changes over time. It’s only by looking at the whole that we can make such general statements about libraries.

 

Traditional academic libraries discovered problems and solved them, adapting to the demands of new scholarship, embracing new media of communication, and developing appropriate organizational and cooperative schemes, in a steady march of progress over the course of the twentieth century away from the tiny, inaccessible, and inadequate historical libraries that had preceded them.

 

Perhaps, as some now say, the traditional library is dead, which is not so, given the enormous benefit traditional libraries have provided for research and education in the country over the past century. If it is so, whatever replaces them is as successful at collecting information, organizing it, and making it as accessible and useful as possible to scholars and students as traditional libraries were. They were good things, traditional libraries, and we will miss them when they’re gone.

Why Content Curation Is a Waste of Time

Robin Good's curator insight, June 16, 2013 1:47 PM



I share a lot of feelings and views with Lauren Fairbanks though I do not see things exactly the same way she does. But then again she is a content marketing specialist and I am an explorer of how curation can help us beyond business goals.


I can't but agree and applaude her when she writes: "...big issue that mass curation creates is a problem that Doug Kessler of UK content marketing firm, Velocity Partners, calls “the deluge of content marketing“.


This means that companies and individuals who create half-assed content (think: rehashing old news or someone else’s original idea just to have something to post) create a mass of garbage online that’s more difficult for potential customers and clients to sift through to find information that’s actually going to be useful for them."


Likewise when she advises to pay more attention to what is being curated: "... there aren’t any software solutions that I’ve seen that actually do a smart job of curating content.


Yeah, you can pull in a bunch of content that revolves around a certain keyword ... but curating content in a smart way that will actually help drive your business goals takes putting in actual time and effort to find really great, really useful content..."


And when she begs brands and self-proclaimed curators to stop to simply copy and paste pieces of content from other magazine articles while not adding anything of their own: "Copying and pasting from multiple articles isn’t going to help you create useful content that’s going to help build your brand or sell your services.


Neither is trying to automate the content curation process so that you take all of the work out.


You get what you put in, and if you’re not willing to invest time and money into curating the right way, you shouldn’t expect to see a positive ROI from it."


Problem is, as I see it, that they might get back for a while a lot more than what they invested for, simply because there are still to many people unable to appreciate or distinguish rehashing, copying and pasting and simple republishing from true curation. But we will get there, as the taste of true lemons, isn't the one of limes.



Rightful. Provocative. 8/10

How Boolean Search can revolutionise the hiring process

How Boolean Search can revolutionise the hiring process | GIBSIccURATION | Scoop.it

Anyone who uses search engines should be thankful to George Boole for inventing relational logical combinatorial systems for key search variables (key terms, phrases, and buzz-words).

 

All recruiters will know how to use Google Search, but many do not know just how powerful the Boolean operators are when it comes to drilling down a manageable list of query results.

 

How you use a Boolean search can determine how successful you are in sourcing job candidates within automated tracking systems (ATS) and resume databases.
