Looking for Some Action in Your Library? Launch a Minecraft Club

Looking for Some Action in Your Library? Launch a Minecraft Club | Libraries YYC | Scoop.it

"Lately, there’s been more drama than usual in our library. At the moment, one of my students is swapping some diamonds—yes, diamonds—for a hefty amount of railway ties. Another is secretly plotting to swipe an unsuspecting classmate’s body armor. And a group of friends can’t believe their luck: they’ve just stumbled across a trove of valuable chests in an abandoned mineshaft. Welcome to our Minecraft club. Every Friday afternoon, 28 middle school and high school kids get together in our library’s computer lab to feast on candy and play one of the world’s hottest video games."

I've hosted Gaming Group at our library for a few years & it's the easiest and most popular program I do.  Expanding into coding is my next move! Will be encouraging more Minecraft play at our next meeting.  (Related craft fyi:  Perler Bead phone charms/key chains - the pixelation is perfect!)

Research libraries evolving for new digital world

Research libraries evolving for new digital world | Libraries YYC | Scoop.it
Welcome to the modern research university library, where new skills and even new spaces are being developed to serve the needs of scholars, scientists, and students working in the digital age.

 

To keep research libraries relevant amid the rapid expansion of web-based information, Tech officials are using architects and student advisory committees to develop spaces and services that draw the campus into the library.

 

More and more print books and journals are shifting out of library buildings and are being replaced by digital classrooms, sequestered study rooms, and open areas for all kinds of group and individual work. Library collections are moving from paper to cyberspace and can be accessed on a growing list of electronic devices, from iPads to Kindles.

 

But moving into the future requires a lot of jumps, among them reconfiguring the library building floor by floor for new uses, diversifying the skills of librarians through hiring and training, and planning for how to curate and preserve traditional print and emerging digital resources.

 

Read more on the implications of these changes to students, scholars and researchers here:  http://www.ecampusnews.com/top-news/research-libraries-evolving-for-new-digital-world/?
