Poly Library to Be a Digital Resource, by Mary Toothman - The Ledger

Poly Library to Be a Digital Resource, by  Mary Toothman - The Ledger | Library web services | Scoop.it

By Mary Toothman

"Polytechnic University will be non-traditional in many ways, but one of the most dramatic alternatives to a typical university setting will be seen in the library. Or, rather, not seen.

When the university opens its doors to students this fall, the library will be almost completely online, although certain hardcover books will be available on an as-needed basis.

Kathryn Miller, director of library services for the school, said the challenge of setting up and planning library services for the polytechnic is a very different and exciting one for her profession, and she is enjoying it. Hired in late January at an annual salary of $95,000, she said it's not every day a librarian has the opportunity to be in on a start-up system like this one.

Her job is to develop and administer library resources and services to support the school's academic programs, faculty teaching and research, and student learning. She will manage budgeting, purchasing and policy development and work to ensure the university's vision aligns with that of the library."

Responsive & Web 3.0
Put aside the SEO benefits, creating responsive design is beyond important because the future is about having your content look great no matter what type of devices is receiving.

Responsive design also forces a new framework on your content marketing THINKING. Your content marketing begins to get away from the static and more toward the dynamic.

Since the future of web design is dynamic making this move now has many benefits.

Social Media: Libraries Are Posting, but Is Anyone Listening?

Social Media: Libraries Are Posting, but Is Anyone Listening? | Library web services | Scoop.it

By Nancy Dowd:

This is the fourth in a series of articles in which Nancy Dowd will examine the results of an exclusive survey of library professionals from more than 400 public libraries across the U.S. on public library marketing. The survey was sponsored by the NoveList division of EBSCO Publishing


"If there are over 1 billion people on Facebook and the Twitterverse can help topple governments, then it only makes sense that libraries would also be using these two social media channels to connect with their communities, right? Well yes and no.

Libraries are using social media, that’s clear. According to Library Journal’s Survey on Public Library Marketing Methods and Best Practices, 86 percent of libraries said they were using social media. The top two social media platforms used by libraries were Facebook (99 percent) and Twitter (56 percent). Pinterest is making some gains, with 30 percent of libraries reporting that they are pinning. The problem is that 48 percent of libraries surveyed said they weren’t measuring their efforts at all. While the survey didn’t ask if libraries are getting fans to interact with them, most libraries I have spoken with lately have said they were still struggling with that."

[...]

Social media is not going away. As new platforms emerge, libraries will need to choose the channels that work for their communities. But whatever platforms they choose, they must have some kind of plan that outlines their goals and embrace philosophies that support interactivity with their communities. I think Bizzle summed it up best, “Successful libraries will determine what platforms most effectively reach their target audience and aggressively build sustainable presences there.”

Leadership in a Digital Age > #libraries| American Libraries Magazine

Leadership in a Digital Age > #libraries| American Libraries Magazine | Library web services | Scoop.it

By Maureen Sullivan

Libraries are laboratories for deep learning

 

The increasingly digital context brings challenges and opportunities for librarians, library staff, archivists, and museum professionals. New roles and the competencies required to perform them are evolving. One overriding role for all of us is that of the leader. The complexity of the changes we experience leads to many unfamiliar situations in which deep learning is necessary to successfully work through the problems and challenges. Scholar Warren Bennis calls these “crucible” experiences.
