Valerie Hill's insight:

The acquisition of people as "resources" is a phenomenon that fascinates me as an information professional.  No longer is it always necessary to enter a physical library to gather information.  Now we interact with others through personal networks that we choose ourselves.  Choose wisely, digital citizens!

“Minecraft can help students visualize concepts, work on communication and collaboration skills, foster positive online behavior, [and] differentiate for students who need more than just words in a textbook”

Makers Gonna Make: The Rise of Makerspaces in Libraries - CEA

Makers Gonna Make: The Rise of Makerspaces in Libraries - CEA | Future of Libraries: Beyond Gutenberg | Scoop.it

Folks who haven’t spent a lot of time in their local libraries this century might still be under the impression that they are just repositories for musty books and shushing staffers.
 
But library use is on the rise, thanks in part to modern institutions reimagining themselves as places for creating, not just accessing, information. High-speed internet access and public computers are just the tip of the iceberg: Many libraries are now providing their patrons with tools including 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC routers, audiovisual gear, sewing machines and more.
 
A 2013 study by the Information Policy and Access Center at University of Maryland College Park found that nearly 17 percent of public library systems have some kind of makerspace. Clive Thompson’s recent piece in Wired further piqued my interest about the rise of makerspaces in libraries, so I set out to talk to some of the experts in the field.
