The Public Library, Completely Reimagined | MindShift

The Public Library, Completely Reimagined | MindShift | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

You’ll hear a lot of talk about the “death of the public library” these days. It isn’t simply the perpetual budget crises that many face either. It’s the move to digital literature, and the idea that once there are no more print books (or rather if there are no more print books), the library as an institution will cease to exist.

"San Diego County Library’s $11-million, 19,000-square-foot Fallbrook branch is the recipient of a People’s Choice Orchid Award in the San Diego Architectural Foundation’s annual Orchids and Onions competition highlighting good (and bad) building design. The online nominations are awarded by a jury of architects through an annual competition that also encourages community involvement. The branch achieved LEED Silver Certification for sustainable design and features a 4,500-square-foot mosaic roof, a “living room” area with a fireplace, a shaded Poets’ Patio, and permanent art installations from local artists woven into the building design."

Why Amazon's Lending Library is Not a Threat to Public Libraries | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it
I had no idea that Amazon's announcement would signal the end of the world, or at least the end of public libraries, or as my friend & colleague Andy puts it, the library apocalypse or I would have included this in yesterday's post.

School Librarians’ Role in ‘Crap Detection’ Cited — The Digital Shift

School Librarians’ Role in ‘Crap Detection’ Cited — The Digital Shift | Library world, new trends, technologies | Scoop.it

"Librarians fostering information literacy: assessing content/"crap detection" http://t.co/iv8QzcxQ...

 

The crisis of information literacy, a familiar issue within the library community, is getting some wider attention.

In this month’s Wired, Clive Thompson cites a recent study that reveals the paucity of search skills among so-called digital natives at both high school and college levels. Importantly he gets to the vital role school librarians play in fostering information literacy, including the critical approach to content, dubbed “crap detection” by Howard Rheingold."
