Fawn B Morgan's curator insight, March 27, 1:01 PM

Family Search is now digitizing the books in the Family History Library SLC collection. I also find many sources on Google Books. Is that considered a digital library?

Web internet search engines 180+ listed and updated

Web internet search engines 180+ listed and updated | Libraries & Archives 101 | Scoop.it
I've just updated my list of search engines (arranged alphabetically) and it's over the 180 mark, closing in on 200. I deleted 31 engines that have gone out of business since I last updated the page in the Autumn of last year, but I added some in as well, so the numbers are staying fairly static. I've given a single line pen picture of each engine, so if you're looking for an alternative to try out, please do give it a whirl.

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."
