My favorite is A Librarian's worth:
This great infographic, created by Masters in Education and ObizMedia, gives a lot of new light on the role of libraries and librarians, as it changes a reference point totally. What would we do without librarians? There is only one answer to this question: nothing.

Carey Leahy's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:29 AM

beyond the BER - we need the Librarian to support the best use of the libraries.

FLIP THE MODEL (a pre-print), By Brian Mathews - The Ubiquitous Librarian

FLIP THE MODEL (a pre-print), By Brian Mathews - The Ubiquitous Librarian | Libraries | Scoop.it
"FLIP THE MODEL (a pre-print)" About new operating models for academic libraries http://t.co/Q2YiGles1B

 

“Academic libraries are encountering a critical inflection point. In our case it isn’t a single technology that is disrupting our established system, but a barrage of advancements in publishing, pedagogy, and user preferences. The landscape is shifting around us, and the future of scholarship requires us to develop new skills, design new environments, and deliver new service capacities. In short, we need new operating models.” Read the pre-print.

This is the draft version [...] submitted to the editors. The final (authoritative) copy will be out in January 2014 in the Journal of Academic Librarianship. It is a themed issue on innovation, startup thinking, and that sort of thing."

Looking Through the Labrary Lens: Lessons from the Library Test Kitchen ... - Library Journal

Looking Through the Labrary Lens: Lessons from the Library Test Kitchen ... - Library Journal | Libraries | Scoop.it

Looking Through the Labrary Lens: Lessons from the Library Test Kitchen ... In fall 2012, the Harvard Labrary—a temporary “pop-up” space in an empty storefront in Harvard Square, Cambridge, MA—was opened as a public gallery for design student projects from the semester-long Library Test Kitchen (LTK) seminar at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design. Describing the Labrary, LTK instructor Jeff Goldenson said that it’s “a place where libraries can outsource risk and innovation,” a “pop-up R&D department” that explores ideas too disruptive for a traditional library location (for more, see “Making Room for Innovation” by Goldenson and Chattanooga PL’s Nate Hill). By bringing student projects to the public and inviting interaction and response, the Labrary became an exploration of what it means to be a library space. Though it was only open briefly, the Labrary suggested new ways of looking at non­traditional library space design.

Boolean Logic - http://tiny.cc/BooleanOperators | Libraries | Scoop.it

This short tutorial is intended to teach you about the Boolean Logic, a system for searching most databases.

Beulah Muller's insight:

The best way to eliminate unwanted results.  The famous three words, AND, OR, NOT will make search so much easier.

 

Definitely well worth the watch
