Books are like the news -- it's better when they are social

Books are like the news -- it's better when they are social | Kerala state central Library,Tvm | Scoop.it
Are books just packages for ideas, or physical souvenirs designed to market an author, or can they become social in the same way the news is becoming social?

Steven Johnson Unveils A Twitter-like Network For Sharing Long Reads | Co. Design | Kerala state central Library,Tvm | Scoop.it

"As a daily writer and reader, I can't live without Twitter: I get story ideas there, I drum up freelance work there, I get inspired and educated there. But man, that 140-character limit is a bitch sometimes. And let's face it--in Twitter's big tent, there's a helluva lot of noise. What if there were something like Twitter, but populated solely with unabridged snippets of interesting books, articles, and essays? Findings.com is exactly that: Instead of exchanging hashtagged brain farts and link-shortened headlines, users can post full-length quotations from whatever literary source they like (provided it's electronic).

 

How can libraries leverage this kind of technology to encourage and support reading and promote their collections and interests? DW

The Public Library, Completely Reimagined | MindShift

The Public Library, Completely Reimagined | MindShift | Kerala state central Library,Tvm | Scoop.it

"You’ll hear a lot of talk about the “death of the public library” these days. It isn’t simply the perpetual budget crises that many face either. It’s the move to digital literature, and the idea that once there are no more print books (or rather if there are no more print books), the library as an institution will cease to exist.Librarians will remind you, of course, that a library is much more than a book repository. It’s an information center (free and open information, I should add). It’s an educational center. It’s a digital access center. It’s a community center. It’s fairly clear when you describe the library like this that none of these roles are going away (nor should they), no matter what format our reading habits may move to.

But these new formats will indeed change libraries — how they operate as well as how they look. As our books become digitized, there may be less need for row upon ofbookshelves. And as such, that’s a great opportunity for libraries to re-think how to use that space."
