Content curation - the process of finding, organizing, and  sharing topical, relevant content for your audience that supports your nonprofit's engagement or campaign goals (or your professional learning) begins with "Spotting the Awesome."

Thanks for scooping the post - and modeling good content curation skills ...

1.) changed headline (way better than the original)
2.) Photo to illustrate headline
3.) Summarized the key points
4.) Added additional links from the source
5.) Shared it through channels

Thank you Beth, hehe. It was meant to be "in the ocean", but then I found that great picture and decided to move onto "sand".

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, 2014 11:24 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.

Will Libraries Exist in the Future? If So, They’ll Be Very Different.

Will Libraries Exist in the Future? If So, They’ll Be Very Different. | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it

What are libraries for, if not storing and circulating books? With their hearts cut out, how can they survive? Libraries as the third place, focused on learning.

Library Staff's insight:

The new emphasis on makerspaces, user generated and collaborative is driving change within public libraries. The traditional community space are adapting to the digital age, positioning themselves to serve everyone's needs - equal access for all.

This article in a local newspaper highlights how libraries are being embraced as community-based learning AND living centres. The role, programs and services are expanding like never before. Here we have examples of library management and staff who are listening carefully to the needs and interests of their users. This ensures the library 'grows with' and responds to the changing needs of its community. This same approach should be implemented by school libraries.

How to Buy Ebooks From Anywhere and Still Read Them All in One Place

How to Buy Ebooks From Anywhere and Still Read Them All in One Place | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it
Most ebook sellers try to lock you into a particular ecosystem. If you don't mind buying from the same company every time, this isn't too bad, but you lose the ability to comparison shop, as well as making it difficult to switch apps. Fortunately, there's a way around this problem.
