Will Libraries Exist in the Future? If So, They’ll Be Very Different. | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it
“ Around the turn of the 20th century—a golden age for libraries in America—the Snead Bookshelf Company of Louisville, Ky., developed a new system for large-stack library shelving.

Important to reflect on this statement from the article - "Libraries will only survive if the communities they serve want and need them to."

Mayra.Loves.Books's curator insight, June 6, 7:22 AM

I disagree with several parts of the article but do agree that libraries will remain as long as the communities that surround them want them. But then, who wouldn't want a library?

Librarypedia: The Future of Libraries and Wikipedia - The Digital Shift

Librarypedia: The Future of Libraries and Wikipedia - The Digital Shift | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it
The Wikipedia Library is an open research hub started in 2010 when Credo Reference donated 500 free research accounts to Wikipedia's most active editors. Partnerships with HighBeam, Questia, JSTOR, and the Cochrane Library followed. Now, the Wikipedia Library is developing into a portal to connect editors with libraries, open access resources, paywalled databases, digital reference tools, and research experts. Two of the project's leaders discuss the potential for collaboration between libraries and Wikipedia, as well as the new Visiting Scholars pilot program.

Interesting! I still steer my students away from Wikipedia in favour of Epic. I still believe that Wikikpedia used on its own is narrowing students ideas/thought process. Eventually will we only have google and Wiki?

On design: "Library leaders nationwide are adapting to this shift by reimagining the library as an engaged community center. The role of librarians is being re-branded to reflect their expertise as content curators and trusted navigators in an ever-expanding ocean of information — in whatever format it may exist."
