Bordeaux lance « Biblio.bato »

Bordeaux lance « Biblio.bato » | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

Le réseau des bibliothèques de la Ville de Bordeaux est l’un des plus grands de France : il compte une bibliothèque centrale (Mériadeck, 27 000 m⊃2;), et neuf bibliothèques de quartiers. A partir du 25 octobre 2011, il faut rajouter à cette inventaire, dans la rubrique "bibliothèque mobile" un bateau bibliothèque répondant au doux nom de Biblio.Bato ! Biblio.Bato est un projet de bibliothèque expérimentale destinée aux 15-35 ans, sur un bateau amarré aux Bassins à flot, l’I-Boat. Pour les porteurs de ce projet, réalisé en partenariat avec le Ministère de la culture, « Biblio.bato » amène la lecture au cœur de ce quartier en évolution et "crée les conditions d’un autre rapport à la culture, détendu et convivial, où l’écran a une large place".

Micah Towery | Why E-books are not Books (and will probably change publishing) | the the poetry blog | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

Books are like the news -- it's better when they are social | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it
Are books just packages for ideas, or physical souvenirs designed to market an author, or can they become social in the same way the news is becoming social?

Are School Libraries Expendable? | TeachHUB | Information Science and LIS | Scoop.it

When budgets are hurting, arts are always the first to go. No Child Left Behind made social studies the low subject on the totem pole. Now, it seems, libraries are on the chopping block.
