In Omaha, A Library With No Books Brings Technology To All

The privately funded, $7 million Do Space provides free access to computers, high-end software, 3-D printers, and laser cutters. It's a learning and play space, as well as an office for entrepreneurs.

Via Luciana Viter
Freek Kraak's insight:
Het gaat er niet om of je al dan niet fysieke materialen hebt (behalve computers etc. dan). Het gaat om toegang en inspiratie.
Die kun je overigens nog steeds ook uit papieren (wat is dat?) boeken halen!
Maar het gaat om de functies van de bibliotheek. Die zijn nuttig en dus moet je de bibliotheek niet afschaffen, maar zich laten ontwikkelen!

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN

Reinventing libraries for 'hanging out, messing around and geeking out' - CNN | Kijken hoe dit gaat | Scoop.it

Collections, staff and space dedicated to teens have existed in libraries for years. Now, libraries are shifting those resources to developing learning spaces where teens can create content instead of consume it. Research has shown the widespread positive impacts of afterschool programs on academic achievement and social behavior, especially in low-income communities. The need for spaces that engage teens becomes even greater during summer break, when teens have more free time, said Elyse Adler with the Nashville Public Library.

It's so good such infographics like the one presented below are created. They don't only list challenges both librarians and library patrons face in times

Has the library outlived its usefulness in the age of Internet? You'd be surprised

The popularity of libraries has not diminished. Numbers show more people are going to libraries than ever before. Here's why.
Freek Kraak's insight:
Dit artikel heeft in de eerste plaats betrekking op wetenschappelijke bibliotheken in de VS. Maar het lijkt me net zo goed interessant voor Nederlandse bibliotheken, ook de openbare: het gaat over trends en vernieuwing. Bibliotheken, fysiek en/of digitaal, moet je echt niet zomaar afschrijven!

Met dank voor de tip aan John Shank in zijn Scoop: 'Blended librarian': http://www.scoop.it/t/blended-librarianship/p/4063766158/2016/05/12/has-the-library-outlived-its-usefulness-ala-acrl-highered-libraries-education-learning?utm_medium=social&utm_source=pinterest

"For various reasons, libraries have largely ignored the volume of new content whose creation has been enabled by the internet. We have failed to recognise that the same systems that created all those creative opportunities also offer opportunities for us. Among those potential boons are tools that could help us deal with the floods the internet unleashed, and a great many more opportunities for us to help serve our communities besides. This article outlines the big-picture issues at play in this conversation; then, rather than explore the practical implications in a monologuegraph, links to an open document so readers can participate in developing those opportunities..."
