Great post! I especially like the part about setting goals... I want all of our goals to be "user-centered" goals!

Neil Gaiman: Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming | TheGuardian.com | Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

It's important for people to tell you what side they are on and why, and whether they might be biased. A declaration of members' interests, of a sort. So, I am going to be talking to you about reading. I'm going to tell you that libraries are important. I'm going to suggest that reading fiction, that reading for pleasure, is one of the most important things one can do. I'm going to make an impassioned plea for people to understand what libraries and librarians are, and to preserve both of these things.

 

And I am biased, obviously and enormously: I'm an author, often an author of fiction. I write for children and for adults. For about 30 years I have been earning my living though my words, mostly by making things up and writing them down. It is obviously in my interest for people to read, for them to read fiction, for libraries and librarians to exist and help foster a love of reading and places in which reading can occur.

 

So I'm biased as a writer. But I am much, much more biased as a reader. And I am even more biased as a British citizen.

 

And I'm here giving this talk tonight, under the auspices of the Reading Agency: a charity whose mission is to give everyone an equal chance in life by helping people become confident and enthusiastic readers. Which supports literacy programs, and libraries and individuals and nakedly and wantonly encourages the act of reading. Because, they tell us, everything changes when we read.

 

And it's that change, and that act of reading that I'm here to talk about tonight. I want to talk about what reading does. What it's good for.

Digital Libraries to School Libraries

Digital Libraries to School Libraries | Libraries and Technology | Scoop.it

This project’s aim is to explore ways in which school librarians can use DL open content to expand and enrich the school library’s resource base and instructional support. This project uses the newest web-based technologies to help school librarians identify DL open content, integrate open content metadata into their OPACs, and help use open content for learning.
