Know or die: risk and opportunity of Knowledge 2.0
“And the web stormed the enterprise and disrupted roles, tasks and jobs: it cast speed, openness, flexibility and efficiency throughout, sparing no business processes: manufacturing, logistic, accounting, customer relation management, lead generation…”

Some good tips that we can all follow over the summer.    I really like #2: READ.   Reading transports us to places and introduces us to situations that can inform our worldview in the most significant ways.

Mike King's curator insight, July 1, 2013 7:50 PM

Libraries are becoming more creative at using social media to engage library users in a new manner. Open Education Database recognized my library as one of the "most loved" libraries on Pinterest.  Libraries can pin reading lists, book suggestions, and activities to their boards.  Users can then re-pin, sharing suggestions to their followers and spreading the library's message.

UpClose: Designing 21st-Century Libraries | Library by Design

UpClose: Designing 21st-Century Libraries | Library by Design | Library happenings | Scoop.it
“ Public libraries are busier and more popular with patrons than ever. Today’s library is a place for social interaction as well as quiet reading. It is a community cultural center, not simply a repository for books. It is a welcoming building with a design focus on transparency, not a series of isolated spaces. These changing operations directly affect the layout and organization of library buildings. So, libraries today must be designed to accommodate more simplified administrative operations and new staff functions.”

Pew/Gates Foundations’ Library Studies Close with Look at User Engagement | Library happenings | Scoop.it
“ The last of a series of Pew Research Center studies examining the changing face of library service in the 21st century was released in March, offering a look at library use that breaks Americans down into nine different groups of library users. The report, “From Distant Admirers to Library Lovers,” caps three years of Pew research on libraries funded by the Gates Foundation, and looks to identify what users—and some non-users—value about library service, and where they may see room for improvement.”

Breaking Out of the Library Mold, in Boston and Beyond - NYTimes.com

Breaking Out of the Library Mold, in Boston and Beyond - NYTimes.com | Library happenings | Scoop.it
BOSTON — An old joke about libraries goes like this: A boy walks into a library and asks for a burger and fries. “Young man!” the startled librarian reprimands. “You are in a library.” So the boy repeats his order, only this time, he whispers. So much has changed in libraries in recent years that such a scene may not be so far-fetched. Many libraries have become bustling community centers where talking out loud and even eating are perfectly acceptable.
