Η πρόταση του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ για τον πολιτισμό :: left.gr | Information Science | Scoop.it
"Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ, ως ο κύριος εκφραστής της Αριστεράς και του ρόλου που αυτή έχει διαδραματίσει, διαχρονικά, στον πνευματικό και πολιτιστικό τομέα, προτάσσει μια πολιτιστική πολιτική απαλλαγμένη από τις αγκυλώσεις, τη διαπλοκή, τις πελατειακές σχέσεις και την καθοδηγούμενη “ενιαία άποψη”. Μια πολιτική που δεν αποσκοπεί να κατασκευάσει “οργανικούς” διανοούμενους, δημιουργούς και καλλιτέχνες, ούτε να δημιουργήσει ηγεμονίες"

Try Your Local Library Instead of a Coffee Shop to Get Work Done | Information Science | Scoop.it
When you think of a library, most people think of a quiet place to study. If you want to get work done and spread out, you go to a coffee shop. Newer libraries offer the same amenities as coffee shops, and sometimes even more.

Politics & Libraries: Every great librarian is a politician | Blatant Berry

Politics & Libraries: Every great librarian is a politician | Blatant Berry | Information Science | Scoop.it
In a collection of old political campaign buttons I found a pink one with the number “321.8” across it in dark blue. The discovery triggered memories of activist times in librarianship four to five decades ago. In our view then, the Dewey number 321.8 was the classification for “participatory democracy,” the system of government in which our small cadre of librarians believed. We were one of dozens of groups that formed within the new Social Responsibilities Round Table of the American Library A

Why a leading professor of new media just banned technology use in class

Why a leading professor of new media just banned technology use in class | Information Science | Scoop.it
Anyone distracted in class doesn’t just lose out on the content of the discussion but creates a sense of permission that opting out is OK, and, worse, a haze of second-hand distraction for peers.

Βιβλία: χαρτί ή/και e-book

Βιβλία: χαρτί ή/και e-book | Information Science | Scoop.it

Πέτρινες πλάκες γραφής, πλάκες από πηλό, περγαμηνές, πάπυροι, χαρτί, οθόνη… Η πορεία της γραφής και των υλικών που χρησιμοποιήθηκαν στην ιστορία, ακολουθούν την πορεία εξέλιξης του ανθρώπου.

Σήμερα, βρισκόμαστε στο απόλυτα μεταβατικό στάδιο. Οι υπολογιστές, τα laptops, τα tablets και η δυνατότητα για την ύπαρξη των ηλεκτρονικών βιβλίων, οδηγούν στην εξάλειψη του βιβλίου. Του βιβλίου από χαρτί. Ή μήπως όχι; Ίσως είμαι κάπως υπερβολική, από τον φόβο μου, μήπως καταργηθεί το χαρτί από τη ζωή μας, μιας και είμαι ταγμένη οπαδός του.
