Study Ties College Success to Students' Exposure to a High School Librarian - The Digital Shift

Study Ties College Success to Students' Exposure to a High School Librarian - The Digital Shift | librarianonthefly | Scoop.it
Training high school students in digital research and partnering them with a school librarian can instill a high level of confidence during college, according to preliminary observations of a study underway by EBSCO.
Cindy Rogers's insight:

"Being prepared as early as their high school freshman year had a positive impact on the higher education experience.When training happened in a partnership with a teacher and a school librarian, the impact was even greater. Sending students to the library to ask their media specialist questions wasn’t as effective as having teachers and librarians working together to instill research skills."

Why It’s Difficult For Your Library to Stock Ebooks

Why It’s Difficult For Your Library to Stock Ebooks | librarianonthefly | Scoop.it
A pilot program operating in Massachusetts has library officials excited about the prospect of expanding access to ebooks and digital content for the state’s library patrons.
Cindy Rogers's insight:
Every time I hold an orientation for my patrons on how to access our ebooks, I try to explain why it seems so complex. This article will help. As a reader, I love the convenience of ebooks, but as a librarian I long for simpler times.

Conference Paper: “Reference Librarianship on the Fly: Taking the Librarian out of the Library” | LJ INFOdocket

Conference Paper: “Reference Librarianship on the Fly: Taking the Librarian out of the Library” | LJ INFOdocket | librarianonthefly | Scoop.it

With the advent of mobile technologies, reference and information services to library patrons have finally come of age. However, it is no longer enough that the ubiquitous virtual reference web chat is open 24/7, or that a library’s website is geared to mobile device access. What, in fact, true digital and mobile assimilation means for reference and information services of the 21st century is the ability for the library to reach out beyond its physical and mobile device- oriented structures, to extend a hand of reference and information greeting to the human user, quite literally, in the street.
This is the realm of the “Embedded” or Itinerant Librarian, whose new role is to take the library with her out into the city to meet her patrons as they go about their busy day-to-day lives. This paper presents case studies, practical professional advice and vision statements of how such services can be achieved to produce a truly 21st century library.

ALA releases 2014 State of America’s Libraries Report | News & Press Center

“Libraries continue to transform to meet society’s changing needs, and more than 90 percent of the respondents in an independent national survey said that libraries are important to the community. But school libraries continue to feel the combined pressures of recession-driven financial tightening and federal neglect, according to the survey by the Pew Research Center’s Internet and American Life Project, and school libraries in some districts and some states still face elimination or de-professionalization of their programs.These and other library trends of the past year are detailed in the American Library Association’s 2014 State of America’s Libraries report, released today during National Library Week, April 13– 19. Sections of the report include: Libraries and Community Engagement, Public Libraries, Ebooks and Copyright Issues, School Libraries, Academic Libraries, Social Networking, Library Construction and Renovation, Outreach and Diversity, Washington Scene, and Intellectual Freedom including the list of “Top Ten Most Frequently Challenged Books” in 2013.” The full text of the 2014 State of America’s Libraries report is available at http://www.ala.org/news/state-americas-libraries-report-2014.
Via Karen du Toit, Joyce Valenza, Dennis T OConnor
Cindy Rogers's insight:
“On one hand, budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or de-professionalize school libraries,” said Barbara K. Stripling, ALA president. “On the other hand, the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology have opened an unprecedented door to school librarian leadership.”

Read, Kids, Read | librarianonthefly | Scoop.it
It’s not a chore. It’s a path to fulfillment that fewer are traveling.
Cindy Rogers's insight:
Who is teaching a LOVE for reading? Certainly fewer and fewer schools. As a teacher I read aloud to my students daily, an experience my children rarely report happening in their classrooms. My eldest once asked if I ever became frustrated with my classmates for making too much noise during SSR when I was a kid.... No, my classmates and I looked forward to that time, our chance to escape to whatever world we wanted. But we were also not subjected to standardized tests, practice standardized tests, ridiculous "strategies", mind-numbing questions, and libraries without librarians.
more...
Sarah Field's curator insight, June 10, 4:25 AM

It's so sad that reading for pleasure is almost non existant among children. Has it been that long since Harry Potter or The Hunger Games were released?!  I love that "The fault in our stars" has been released as a movie and I hope it will inspire teenage girls to read the book. Novels are vegetables for the mind and it seems if more people, especially children, read, then we wouldn't be seeing such an abundance of incorrect grammar, spelling and lack of punctuation across social media, from newspapers and newsreaders and school work. Reading relieves stress, fires the imagination and engages in a way that 'screen time' simply can't.
