Managing Multiplicity | Library Systems Landscape 2015

Managing Multiplicity | Library Systems Landscape 2015 | Information Science | Scoop.it
Selecting a library management system is never an easy decision. Vendors of integrated library systems (ILS) offer solutions tailored to public, academic, school, and special libraries, but even when organized by type, libraries are hardly one-size-fits-all organizations. Choosing a new vendor tends to mean a major investment, with a multiyear commitment to a solution that often will require new training, adaptation, and trade-offs among cost, features, and functionality. Still, it’s a tough cho

How to Research Like a Journalist When the Internet Doesn't Deliver | Information Science | Scoop.it
The internet is full of information, but sometimes what you’re looking for needs a different approach. Whether you’re looking for public records, family trees, or really old archives, it’s time to do some offline digging like an old-school journalist. Here’s how to get started.

Από τις βιβλιοθήκες ξεκινά η καλλιέργεια της φιλαναγνωσίας

Από τις βιβλιοθήκες ξεκινά η καλλιέργεια της φιλαναγνωσίας | Information Science | Scoop.it
Αν και δεν είμαστε από τους πολύ τυχερούς πολίτες, αφού υπάρχουν άλλα κράτη όπου σε κάθε γειτονιά υπάρχει και μια παιδική βιβλιοθήκη, αν κάποιος αναζητήσει παιδικές βιβλιοθήκες και στην Ελλάδα θα βρει, αν όχι σε κάθε γειτονιά, αλλά κάπου κοντά του.

Υπάρχουν βέβαια και φωτεινές εξαιρέσεις, δηλαδή πόλεις με ολόκληρα δίκτυα παιδικών βιβλιοθηκών. Αναφέρω ενδεικτικά την Καλαμαριά και την Καρδίτσα με δέκα παιδικές βιβλιοθήκες, μια σε κάθε γειτονιά.
