The librarian bonus - Doug Johnson's Blue Skunk Blog | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

If you hire a professionally trained librarian and give them tech integration responsibilities, you get an experienced teacher who is knowledgeable about technology and how it can be used in a variety of ways in the classroom, can do a little trouble-shooting, and can offer professional development experiences on the use of technology.

Every time a government agency is taken to task in a courtroom for losing files, mishandling records or mismanaging documents, department heads line up to take the stand (and sometimes the fall).

 

So why aren't the information professionals on the hot seat too?

You Will Never Get Enterprise Content Management Right

You Will Never Get Enterprise Content Management Right | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it
No one will. At least not in the way we typically think about it. We all seem to want to solve it narrowly, tactically, with concrete steps we can begin taking today, making progress step by step until we’ve got ECM down. We think we need to find the right systems, or migrate this or that swamp of content from where it is to a better place, or get our user interface more intuitive. And then, with that heavy lifting done (and the promised land reached), we can run and maintain our opti Topic: Information Management.
RuthEastham's insight:

"The goal of doing ECM well is not to get it right once and for all, it’s to foster an ongoing attention to how managing information impacts an organizations core value chain activities and then to work continuously to improve it."

#InformationChaos -- The game has changed.  

Information is the world’s new currency.

 

Read just about any business publication and you will quickly conclude that how an organization manages its information assets is now just as fundamental a source of competitive differentiation as how it manages its physical assets, its human assets, and its financial assets. Amidst all of this opportunity, organizations are drowning in a sea of content and information. #InformationChaos reigns supreme.

The Public Library Wants To Be Your Office, by Anita Hamilton

The Public Library Wants To Be Your Office, by Anita Hamilton | Information makes the world go round | Scoop.it

"D.C. Public Library president Richard Reyes-Gavilán defends libraries’ growing role as business incubators, despite their tenuous connection to books, literacy, and information access. “Libraries have always been a place for personal betterment. We are providing a space for people to get a leg up on their lives, whether that’s someone running their own business or getting their library card for the first time so they’re better able to tackle first grade.”

Adds NYPL President Marx, “libraries should be providing free access to information and physical space to engage in the life of the mind whether it is a new business idea or thinking up a new novel.” It’s a nice idea. But as demonstrated by the failed plan to gut the stacks at the crown jewel of the New York Public Library system, trying to accommodate everyone in a finite space is just begging for a turf war."

Libraries are becoming de-facto business incubators, and a few are actively targeting that market.

The case of the library as office space! Definitely the library of the future! There should be a work-around between the library loyalists and the library as community space enthusiasts!

Olga Kudriavtseva 's curator insight, July 14, 7:06 AM
Библиотекари - учителя.  Во многих библиотеках  есть компьютеры, которые библиотекари используют для обучения различных категорий пользователей. Библиотекари   научат как использовать Microsoft Office, как безопасно пользоваться Интернетом, как настроить учетные записи и оставаться в безопасности в социальных медиа , и многое другоеБиблиотекари  - технически продвинутые специалисты.   Мы должны знать, по крайней мере, основы компьютерных технологий. В большинстве случаев, мы знаем больше, и если мы не уверены в  точном ответе , то знаем, как его найти.Библиотекари - рекламодатели.  Библиотеки в основном  сами управляют своими связями с общественностью и рекламой собственных услуг и событий ( обычно почти без бюджета). Библиотекари  пишут пресс-релизы, ведут страницы в соцсетях, налаживают связи, а также создаютсвои собственные логотипы и графический дизайн. Когда дело доходит до графических программ,   библиотекари изучают их самостоятельноБиблиотекари - организаторы мероприятий.  Библиотеки каждый год проводят десятки мероприятий , поэтому  персонал библиотек должен рассчитать бюджет  и план  события,   привлечь  добровольцев или платных ведущих. Библиотекари  планируют   тему мероприятия, ,пишут сценарий, готовят угощение ... . Большинство деталей оформления, обычно, также сделано руками сотрудников библиотеки и т.д и т.п.Библиотекари исследователи.  Библиотекари не только знают, как организовать и найти информацию. Мы знаем, как собирать и анализировать информацию. Мы видим закономерности и может извлечь из них информацию. Например, вы когда-нибудь приходили в библиотеку с просьбой  рекомендовать почитать, что-нибудь такое же интеречное? Если это так, вас, вероятно, спросили о том, какой  тип книг вам нравится, если у вас  любимые авторы,   что привлекло вас в книге (место события, символы, юмор ...) и т.д. Все это были те вопросы,   которые помогли библиотекарю проанализировать ваши  вкусы  в книгах, для того, чтобы   предоставить вам книгу автора, творчество которого вы полюбите.
