Hosea Tokwe | Movers & Shakers 2015 — Change Agents

Hosea Tokwe | Movers & Shakers 2015 — Change Agents | School Library Digest | Scoop.it
Hosea Tokwe arrived at the Matenda School on July 6, 2007, carrying two boxes of books donated by a former student; he was determined to launch the poor rural school’s first library. It was a tumultuous time in Zimbabwe, however, and the community in Matenda greeted him with suspicion. They feared he was not actually a librarian at Midlands State University Library but an opposition political agent sent to stir up trouble.

The New School Library

The New School Library | School Library Digest | Scoop.it

Without question, the Internet has changed the way we think and learn, and will continue to do so as our technology evolves. In particular, the ability to access enormous amounts of information at any time from almost any place is forcing schools to redefine the idea of a classroom and the way we approach teaching. It is also reshaping the notion of school library services — what libraries look like and how they and librarians best serve schools.

Librarian’s Worth Around the World: Infographic « Dysart & Jones

Librarian’s Worth Around the World: Infographic « Dysart & Jones | School Library Digest | Scoop.it

Click here to edit the content

Obizmedia creates infographics – real “a picture paints a thousand words” infographics.  Below is an infographic they recently created for Masters in Education.Org depicting Librarian’s Worth Around the World. Interesting.  Have a look.  And then consider using a firm like Obizmedia – or a communications/graphics specialist –  to convey a message to your customers — your Board — your community — your campus — your Provost — your Council…consider the possibilities. Save the thousand words; people stop listening after 10.

Obizmedia also has an Anatomy of a Librarian infographic. Check that out too. I love the heels — I’ll bet Bobbi Newman does too!
