Anne Harding Training: School libraries in a changing world

Anne Harding Training: School libraries in a changing world | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

Anne Harding:

 

"Two interesting training events last week, both with a school library theme, plus some valuable links and resources for school librarians.

It was fascinating to lead discussions for the London School Library Association branch on the theme of the school library in a changing world. With so many changes that impact on school libraries happening in education and in publishing, as well as the ever evolving digital scene, there was lots to consider. Topics delegates chose to debate included the implications of the Ofsted report Moving English Forward for school librarians, funding issues, raising the profile of the library, information literacy for the Google generation, and how school libraries should deal with e-resources. We talked too about the opportunities social networking offers. The photo is of the lovely library at Lea Valley High School, where the training took place."

 

"For anyone keen to keep up to date with the latest in the school library world, Heart of the School (http://heartoftheschool.edublogs.org/) is a fantastic resource. The School Library Network (http://groups.yahoo.com/group/sln/)  is also invaluable. The School Library Association (http://www.sla.org.uk/) is excellent. All the books in their Guidelines and Case Studies series (http://www.sla.org.uk/guidelines.php) are helpful and accessible. The latest guide, Twitterspace and Facecloud: Web.2.0 and Beyond for School Librarians (http://www.sla.org.uk/publication.php?isbn=9781903446669), is great. For school librarians considering their role in relation to e-resources, this workshop on e-book lending (http://www.peters-books.co.uk/pdf/ebooks.pdf%20)  in schools looks very useful."

There's much romantic talk about a writer's process. An epiphany, some procrastination, an extended trip to an isolated wooded area, immense frustration, and voila!: a bestseller.

Controversy in Fifty Shades of Grey and aboout censorship | American Libraries Magazine

Controversy in Fifty Shades of Grey and aboout censorship | American Libraries Magazine | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

Last weekend I read the 2012 Vintage version of the New York Times bestseller Fifty Shades of Grey by E. L. James. I read it as a whole because I am tired of reading pseudo-reviews that count the number of incidents involving drinking, smoking, sex, and dirty words. (Of course, if some reviewers want to count—be my guest! The book has plenty!) If I were to write a review, I would say the book is way too long and the writing often mundane and clichéd.
