"American Libraries presents its list of the top 10 library news stories of 2011, covering digitization, privacy, copyright, advocacy, and much more." Youtube video edited by Greg Landgraf: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ORJ_wQn6mjE
As public libraries continue their quest to stay relevant in the wake of cuts to their funding and decreased popularity, some are greatly altering their set-ups and making moves to appeal to a younger crowd.
“The project is about connecting libraries and artists of all kinds: visual artists, performing artists, writers—anybody who uses the libraries in their community,” says Batykefer. “It’s not only to make known that artists and art organizations can use libraries as resources, but highlight the ways which libraries contribute to communities all the time. “ The LIP’s site, which officially launched last month, features the work of artists who have relied on the support of libraries during their careers, as well as libraries that have supported the arts through unique collections or initiatives.
Le Huffington Post, le plus influent des journaux américains en ligne, publie depuis novembre une série d’informations et de commentaires qui sont en train de constituer un important dossier d'analyse et de synthèse sur la crise américaine des bibliothèques. En donnant la parole à ceux qui font la bibliothèque d’aujourd’hui et de demain, c’est une véritable conversation nationale qui s’ouvre sur les attentes des américains en matière de services publics.
"Though the patron for whom you order or check out a book today might not know to thank you for your hard work and your daily faith and patience, thank you for these things. You are the champions of our dreams, the crusaders for our growth, the soldiers who mark new territory for the expansion of our imaginations. Your work is profound, your effort glorious, your contribution quiet but immense."
Councillor Mike Del Grande, the city's budget chief, questions whether the library should be in the business of movies and non-English materials.
Being a focal point for the community is precisely the right role, said Councillor Sarah Doucette, a library board member. She shook her head when Del Grande’s recorded comments were played back to her. “I guess it depends what you think a library is,” she said. “A library is no longer a room full of books. It’s the computers where people can come to get jobs, improve their education. Some of the videos are how-to videos. We’ve got the newspapers, we’ve got magazines. We’re working to get more e-books.”
