"Yet the promise of libraries is in peril because school libraries are in crisis; a threat to one type of library is a threat to all libraries. School libraries across the country are at a critical point. On one hand, budget and testing pressures have led to decisions to eliminate or de-professionalize school libraries. On the other hand, the increased emphasis on college and career readiness and the integration of technology have opened an unprecedented door to school librarian leadership."

I AM A {SOCIAL} LIBRARIAN infographic

I AM A {SOCIAL} LIBRARIAN infographic | Libraries | Scoop.it

Social today means so much more than sending a tweet or posting to Facebook. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon. In this complex, dynamic and demanding environment, librarians are extending themselves and empowering library users. In recognition of this, Elsevier's Library Connect Newsletter and Joe Murphy, Librarian & Technology Analyst/Trend Spotter, offer up a visual portrait of The Social Librarian, and invite you to download and post, share on your social streams, and discuss with your library stakeholders.

New Librarianship MOOC: Partnerships in Creativity, Innovation, and Learning

New Librarianship MOOC: Partnerships in Creativity, Innovation, and Learning | Libraries | Scoop.it

The further we move into R. David Lankes’s “New Librarianship Master Class”—a massive open online course (MOOC) under the auspices of the University of Syracuse School of Information Studies— and his book The Atlas of New Librarianship, the more obvious the overlap between librarianship and the entire field of training-teaching-learning becomes—which makes me wonder why I don’t see more interactions and sustainable collaborations between colleagues in the American Library Association (ALA)  and the American Society for Training & Development (ASTD) and others involved in the professions those two associations represent....

Fe Angela M. Verzosa's curator insight, July 26, 2013 12:31 AM

New Librarianship is about knowledge and training; everything we do is about helping people develop their own knowledge. As Lankes says, “I think a lot of instruction in libraries should be about things within the community and not about the library itself.”

Linda M's curator insight, July 29, 2013 3:22 PM

The 20 most spellbinding university libraries in the world

The 20 most spellbinding university libraries in the world | Libraries | Scoop.it

You can't have a university without a library. The hub of any academic's life, some of these libraries have been feeding the minds of scholars for nearly 500 years.

 

From Duke Humfrey's Library at Oxford, built in the 16th century, to the Joe & Rika Mansueto library built only a couple of years ago, to the Stirling Memorial library built in the 1930s, each has its own unique look and feel.

 

How we expect our libraries to appear and function has changed. Irrespective of age, these spellbinding library buildings each demonstrate unusual and beautiful approaches to the focal point of any university.

 

All these libraries stand testament to the brilliance of books.

How can we replicate the grand feeling of "being in the library" virtually - still much to be said about "library as place of learning"

Mary Coghlan's curator insight, September 2, 2013 3:06 PM

The library as a "sense of place". Libraries will continue to inspire and encourage learning in an age of digital technoogy.

This great infographic, created by Masters in Education and ObizMedia, gives a lot of new light on the role of libraries and librarians, as it changes a reference point totally. What would we do without librarians? There is only one answer to this question: nothing.
