Curation’s two most important PR assets?

What does PR have to do with curation? Curation offers PR strategists two critical assets: intelligence and discovery. It’s getting harder and harder to search and find valuable nuggets of intelligence in a haystack of information that has simply grown too large and less relevant.

Thank you Silvia. Well said. It's not just students who think anything on the net is there for the taking. I use my own media as much as possible, or Creative Commons images, but even with my knowledge it's a steep learning curve. Awareness is the first step.

Lighting Quality, Not Quantity | Library by Design

Lighting Quality, Not Quantity | Library by Design | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it
When it comes to thinking about lighting, two common misconceptions dominate library design. The first is that cutting energy consumption equals sustainability—it doesn’t. Then there’s the notion that everything in a library space should be equally lit, which in practice just means that lighting fails to draw attention to or emphasize any part of the space. Dashing these notions guided the lighting design during the renovation of Madison Public Library’s (MPL) Central Library, WI. The result is an architecturally integrated lighting system that helps to transform a decrepit 1965 building into a state-of-the-art facility, registered for Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) Gold certification, with a highly flexible architectural interior and an operational lighting demand almost half of what is allowed by code.

Thank you so much for referencing my work and for highlighting, as we all must learn to do more often, the good stuff you found in it.
David Collet's curator insight, May 6, 8:24 PM

I like this.

 

Long ago, in a former life, I used to get newspaper articles passed to me each day that were relevant to my job and/or my aspirations. I would take the necessary hour or so each day to remain current with world affairs related to what I did or where I wanted to go.

 

Curation is a lot like that except it is more global in concept. 

 

This article talks about how to do this in the best way.
