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. | 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. Snead’s multifloor stack systems can still be seen in many important libraries built in that era, for instance at Harvard, Columbia, the Vatican,...”

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, April 28, 7:03 PM

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?

At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries

At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it

Th A new future is coming to education. Online shopping, searching and social networks came first—education is next. OCLC's newest user perceptions study, At a Tipping Point: Education, Learning and Libraries, explores how empowered consumers, fueled by economic incentives, are using online learning platforms and MOOCs to set new expectations for education—and for libraries. The report explores the behaviors, perceptions and motivations of online learners: how they are evaluating the cost/value trade-offs of higher education, how they are using and succeeding with online education—and their use and perceptions of the library.

L2_S2S's insight:

"The Library is books .... And a place to get work done."

Do you agree?

The Story of Claudette Colvin: Students as Historians

The Story of Claudette Colvin: Students as Historians | Libraries and Learning | Scoop.it
"Studying history" isn't enough -- students should "do history" by actively immersing themselves in gathering information, interpreting sources, and developing original ideas.
L2_S2S's insight:

"Deep, impactful learning is learning by doing, learning by experiencing, and learning by discovering. When learning is built around these beliefs, classes can be structured so that creation and discovery happen both inside andoutside of the classroom walls."

The best educator teams have the library as part of their game plan.
