Sexology, the interdisciplinary scientific study of sex has been an integral component to the study of humanity. If you are currently researching any topics relating to the areas of sexology, sexuality or sex, consider visiting The New York Public Library's research collections! Whether you find sexology to be deeply fascinating or awfully embarrassing, there is a plethora of resources available to conduct your research.

toraki's curator insight, Today, 8:09 AM

Συμφωνώ πως φράσεις του τύπου "Άνοιξη των βιβλιοθηκών στην Ελλάδα" εμπεριέχουν έως και ναρκισσισμό, θα τολμούσα να πω. Νομίζω πάντως πως υπάρχει μια μεγαλύτερη κινητικότητα ή καλύτερα εξωστρέφεια τα τελευταία χρόνια, η οποία όμως και αυτή φοβάμαι ότι είναι κάπως επιφανειακή, χωρίς μπούσουλα και ακολουθεί το ρεύμα, έτσι απλά. Πολλές δημόσιες σχέσεις, πολλές εκδηλώσεις, πολλές δημοσιοποιήσεις (όχι απαραίτητα κακά αυτά), όμως το ζητούμενο σε μια βιβλιοθήκη ή για τις βιβλιοθήκες μιας χώρας τον 21ο αιώνα είναι μόνο αυτό; Και πού είναι η Πολιτεία σε όλα αυτά; Και οι βιβλιοθήκες και οι άλλοι φορείς τι κάνουν; Τελικά τα λέμε κάποιοι γραφικοί και αρκεί;

toraki's curator insight, March 28, 5:02 AM

"...If you want a truly great library, you have to design spaces that emphasize that librarians have expertise in a huge range of areas vital to scholarship and teaching – from data and metadata, to digital preservation, to publishing, to online learning, to software development, text-mining, project management, and yes even reference.

Ensure your library is designed to make library experts visible and accessible to scholars and students. Include in your designs plenty of information and technology rich environments for faculty and students to collaborate with library experts.

My second bit of advice is that you recognize that the best future we can imagine (for higher education or for libraries) is likely to come from more diverse and inclusive conversations than the ones we usually have.

And I mean more diverse along all the usual axes of diversity that we think of – race, class, gender, sexuality; and some that we sometimes forget – conversations that include a range of neurodiversity, and that include people with different physical abilities and disabilities.

...

But of course, my whole point is that the future of libraries is about much more than finding the right balance between print and digital; or designing the right kinds of study and collaborative spaces for students — those are important parts of it; but I challenge you to imagine a future library where every scholar and every student has the maximum opportunity to work with experts in the library who bring unique skills and knowledge that could jumpstart new research and transform learning.

I said at the beginning that the future is incredibly fragile, uncertain and nearly unpredictable. But the one thing that I am certain of about the future is that it will be better through radically inclusive collaboration."
