Try something new with your students this year. 

I normally don't like to create "click bait" blog post titles, but this one
seemed to fit. Twenty-five resources can be overwhelming, but there is a
good mix of different types of items. There are links to websites with
lesson plans, iOS apps, books, videos, and samples of student work to fit
your learning style.

Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York | Librarian Resources and Information | Scoop.it

Digital Culture of Metropolitan New York (DCMNY) provides online access to digital collections of libraries, archives, museums and historical societies located in and around New York City. Participating institutions are located in the following counties of New York State: Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Westchester. The collections include photographs, maps, letters, postcards, manuscripts, scrapbooks, programs from events, catalogues, memorabilia and ephemera, and much more.

Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by

Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by | Librarian Resources and Information | Scoop.it

By Pawan Deshpande "Recently, Kimberley Isbell of the Nieman Journalism Lab cited a Harvard Law report and published an extensive post on news aggregation and legal considerations. From a curation perspective, the whole article is interesting, but what was the most surprising was that her recommendations for being an ethical content aggregator, were the same as being an effective content curator."

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, July 15, 8:07 PM

The author makes a strong case for his assertion that ethical content aggregation and effective content curation are synonymous. Deshpande's "5 Rules to being an Ethical Content Curator" are a solid start on a list of best practices for curation.
