The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes

The League of Extraordinary Librarians: media specialists are leading the way as tech superheroes | Libraries & Archives 101 | Scoop.it

Meet the latest tech superheroes: school librarians. According to School Library Journal’s 2012 School Technology Survey, media specialists are leading the charge to bring new media, mobile devices, social apps, and web-based technologies into our nation’s classrooms.

 

So far, the results have been pretty impressive: 87 percent of school librarians report that they’re in charge of their library’s technology, with 60 percent adding that they’ve also introduced it into the classroom. Furthermore, 44 percent now serve on their school’s tech team, and in these budget-troubled times, when many library positions are on the line, that role may mean increased job security. In fact, 55 percent of the elementary, middle, and high school librarians that responded to our survey say that their tech skills have increased their value in administrators’ eyes.

The digital open source library of tomorrow: Phil Shapiro - opensource.com

The digital open source library of tomorrow: Phil Shapiro  - opensource.com | Libraries & Archives 101 | Scoop.it

"Opensource.com moderator Nicole Engard attended a talk by Phil Shapiro at the 2014 All Things Open conference in Raleigh, NC in which Phil laid out his vision for how libraries need to adapt to the changes ..."

 

"Phil Shapiro, one of my fellow Opensource.com Community Moderators, gave a talk at All Things Open 2014 about open source and libraries. This is a recap of that talk.

Too many people ask, "What is the future of libraries?" and not, "What should the future be?" A book that we must read is: Expect More: Demanding Better Libraries For Today's Complex World. If we don't expect more of libraries, we're not going to see libraries change. We have to change the frame of mind that libraries belong the directors—they actually belong to the people and they should be serving the people.

Phil asks how we get some communities to participate in managing libraries. Start looking at your library's collection and see if there is at least 1% of the collection in the STEM arena. Should that percent be more? Maybe 5% or 10% more? There is no set answer here, but maybe we need to make a suggestion to our libraries. Maybe instead of just books our funds should go to empower the community more in the technology arena. Maybe we should have co-working space in our library—this can be fee based even—and could be something as low as $30.00/month. That would be a way for libraries to help the unemployed and the community as a whole."
