The Evolving Role of University Libraries - Martha Bedard / UConn Advance (blog)

The Evolving Role of University Libraries - Martha Bedard / UConn Advance (blog) | Information Science | Scoop.it

By: Suzanne Zack:

Martha Bedard: "It is a really exciting time for libraries. In all the years I’ve worked in libraries it has never, ever been boring. I remember the first time I barcoded a book, well before everything we bought had a barcode, and I added records to the first online catalog which replaced the print card catalog. Librarians were active on the Internet pre-graphical interface, pre-web."

Libraries That Matter | Project for Public Spaces

Libraries That Matter | Project for Public Spaces | Information Science | Scoop.it
By Cynthia Nikitin and Josh Jackson
...new libraries serve as centers of discovery and communication–places where people gather and where information comes alive through teaching and personal interaction. Indeed, to distinguish themselves in a world where Google is well on its way to digitally scanning most of the books ever written, libraries are learning to take advantage of the simple fact that they are centrally located in almost every community. In other words, libraries now see success being linked to their role as public places and destinations.
