New York City’s Municipal ID Will Do Double Duty as a Library Card

New York City’s Municipal ID Will Do Double Duty as a Library Card | Information Science | Scoop.it
On Monday, January 12, New York City began taking applications for its long-awaited municipal identification card (IDNYC). Not only will this be the first photo ID card ever issued by the city, it will also serve as a library card at all three New York City library systems—the first time a single card will grant access to Brooklyn Public Library, New York Public Library, and Queens Library.

That's what I call library marketing!

Do Libraries Change the World? Should They? Short Answer: Yes | Peer to Peer Review

Do Libraries Change the World? Should They? Short Answer: Yes | Peer to Peer Review | Information Science | Scoop.it
For the sake of argument, let's all agree that the answer to this question is yes: libraries have a central mission to change the world—to make it a better, more intelligent, more tolerant, more open-minded place, one that is (thanks in part to our professional efforts) increasingly filled with well-informed critical thinkers who will, themselves, take the tools and skills with which the library has provided them and go on to make the world even better. This is what the library exists to do.

An Awfully Big Blog Adventure: Why fund libraries when it's all online? - by Nicola Morgan

A reminder to those who have forgotten the role of the librarian, the role of the library and the reason for their existence. And most of all, a message to those who never bothered to realize it.

Γιατί να μην διαβάζω από το tablet πριν κοιμηθώ

Γιατί να μην διαβάζω από το tablet πριν κοιμηθώ | Information Science | Scoop.it
Γνωρίζαμε ήδη πως η εκτεταμένη χρήση του tablet μπορεί να κουράσει τα μάτια. Νέα έρευνα Αμερικανών επιστημόνων τώρα δίνει και μια άλλη αρνητική διάσταση στη χρήση του tablet πριν τον ύπνο.   Έρευνα που έκαναν επιστήμονες από το Πανεπιστήμιο του harvard έδειξε πως το φως που εκπέμπουν τα ηλεκτρονικά βιβλία προκαλεί διαταραχή ύπνου. Έτσι, αν και το διάβασμα των ηλεκτρονικών βιβλίων μπορεί να είναι η νέα μόδα πρέπει όμως να αποφεύγεται.

Hard Times Ahead for the Library of Birmingham

Hard Times Ahead for the Library of Birmingham | Information Science | Scoop.it
The award-winning Library of Birmingham (LB), which garnered applause and approval across the U.K. when it was built in 2013, is about to fall on hard times. After opening to great fanfare a little over a year ago, the library has been finding it hard to keep up with costs, citing a lack of private sponsorship and the Birmingham City Council’s (BCC) failure to raise promised money from land sales. Then at the end of 2014 the BCC announced a round of austerity measures that will cut some £72 mill
Afroditi Fragkou's insight:

The fact that a library is new or modern doesn't ensure its present nor its future. I would hate to see this happening to another library only because somebody thought that the problem lies under an old building instead of understanding that first you have to create the readers and then figure out where to "house them".
