Las bibliotecas pueden llegar a cambiar la vida de las personas

Las bibliotecas pueden llegar a cambiar la vida de las personas | Information Science | Scoop.it
En la Unión Europea hay unas 65.000 bibliotecas públicas, que reciben cada año a un total de más de 100 millones de personas. Son unos excelentes datos y que hay que tener muy en cuenta, no por el simple hecho de los datos en sí… sino por el poder de transformación que esas personas pueden llegar a experimentar en sus vidas. La siguiente infografía (y de la cual están sacados los datos) muestra como las bibliotecas pueden llegar a cerrar las brecha digital en Europa, como se ayuda a los ciudadan

Britain's libraries can't face any more cuts after this election

toraki's curator insight, Today, 6:46 AM

Ας προσέξουμε αυτό:

 

"The internet offers a route to a mass of random and often inaccurate information. The filter of expertise, whether of a librarian or professional publisher, is absent. Even when mediated by a library portal, internet searching is a solitary experience, and to assume that actual libraries can be supplanted by virtual ones is premature. Both local historians and academic researchers rely on paper and print. Perhaps even more important, libraries offer human contact and personal support that the internet has not yet managed to replicate."

 

Αλλά και αυτό που αφορά τις εκλογές όπου κι αν γίνονται:

 

"Finally – isn’t this election about democracy? Libraries are a natural home for local pressure groups and community forums, while the internet can be a place of trending hashtags and the zeitgeist as bully. Let’s hope that these unsung havens of study and self-actualisation don’t suffer yet again at the hands of our political leaders."

toraki's curator insight, April 29, 1:44 AM

Φυσικά έχει ενδιαφέρον. Αξίζει πάντως να συνδυάσουμε την ανάγνωση της έκθεσης αυτής με την ανάγνωση του βιβλίου ενός επίσης Γάλλου ανθρώπου του πολιτισμού Jean Clair "Χειμώνας στον πολιτισμό". (Είχα γράψει εδώ: http://katerinatoraki.blogspot.gr/2013/03/jean-clair.html.)

s.pierros's curator insight, May 2, 6:01 AM

H katerinatoraki προτείνει για παράλληλη ανάγνωση  http://katerinatoraki.blogspot.gr/2013/03/jean-clair.html

 

Δεν έχει άδικο, είναι εμπορευματοποίηση αυτό που γίνεται στα μουσεία, άλλωστε το αρχικό άρθρο γι αυτό το πράγμα μιλάει, για τα έσοδα κι όχι για την χρησιμότητα, την αξία, την ωφέλεια·  σκέφτομαι πως το αντίγραφο της Νίκης της Σαμοθράκης, στο Μουσείο της Σαμοθράκης, δεν διατρέχει τέτοιους κινδύνους: είναι στριμωγμένο σε μια γωνία, στηριγμένο στον τοίχο μ΄ ενα καδρονάκι, είναι ελάχιστοι αυτοί που θα μπορούσαν ταυτόχρονα να το δουν και γλιτώνει από τον κίνδυνο της εμπορευματοποίησης. Εδώ ακριβώς συνειδητοποιώ ότι δεν είναι συνειδητή επιλογή πως δεν εμπορευματοποιήσαμε κάποια πράγματα, δεν είναι συνειδητή επιλογή πως δεν έχουμε αυτοκινητοβιομηχανία, δημόσια διοίκηση κλπ.
