Après l’examen du profil de la génération tablette et un survol des services mobiles, les participants du laboratoire vivant des Bibliothèques de Montréal ont entrepris d’explorer et de co-créer des avenues de développement possibles, pertinentes, innovatrices, durables pour la tablothèque.
It’s a well established fact that reading is good for kids, but lots of kids don’t have consistent access to books outside of school. That’s why it’s fantastic that New York City will soon be adding thousands of books to homeless shelters to help benefit children and families.
You know what it's like. It's bedtime, and your tot reaches for a book you'd rather drink lye than read again. Here is a baker's dozen of antidotes, for babies up through early-elementary children. There are urban idylls and country adventures, wordless wonders and books that practically read themselves aloud, funny flights of fancy and explorations of history and science. Between their art and their texts, each one richly repays multiple visits.
After reading this article in the New York Times yesterday I started thinking about one of my favorite coloring apps for children. No matter how old or young you are coloring requires a combination of skills that can be applied in various situations. Combining coloring with augmented reality is an easy way to introduce this exciting technology to students. The colAR Mix app (available for iOS and Android devices) is a super fun choice with plenty of free options.
The Rainbow Book List Committee proudly announces the 2015 Rainbow List. The Rainbow List is a bibliography of books with significant gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender content, and which are aimed at youth, birth through age 18.

The list also is intended to aid as a collection development or reader’s advisory tool for librarians serving children and young adults.
The April 4 announcement of this year's Hugo Awards shortlist generated a firestorm of controversy on Twitter and sf websites; at issue is the politicization of what should have been a selection process based on literary merit.
Beyond the Best Novel category, most of the final choices in the other categories (Best Novella, Best Novelette, Best Short Stories, Best Related Work) came from two fan block-voting campaigns, one called Sad Puppies organized by sf authors Brad R. Torgersen and Larry Correia. and the Rabid Puppies slate headed by fantasy writer. Vox Day (real name Theodore Beale),.
The Canadian perspective on games and libraries comes to us from Christine F. Smith, ILN Country Ambassador for Canada. Games have existed as cultural artefacts for much time, and in recent years,e have seen games and gaming join our paperbacks and story times in library programs and services around the world. Gaming can been seen quite noticeably in the Canadian library landscape. From the Greater Victoria Public Library’s video game lending, to the Atlantic Provinces Library Association’s “Games@theLibrary” week and Montreal’s grand 13-day “Montréal joue” festival, Canadian public libraries from coast to coast have integrated games and gaming into their organisations..
A salute to society's most successful civic institution. The public library is the only civic institution in my community that is uncompromisingly successful. Not everyone in my small town is crazy about the police force, and not everyone is all that pleased with the public schools. No one ever seems terribly happy with the planning board, the architectural review board, the board of trustees. Some people think the volunteer firemen get too much money for new equipment, though no one ever dares say it out loud. The public library is different. The public library is the community’s kindly grandmother: helpful, patient, understanding. Nobody in my town ever stands up and says he dislikes the public library. Nobody in your town does, either.
The combination of poetry and pictures has ancient roots, of course, but in our time, it shows up mostly in books published for children. But why should kids have all the fun? The eclectic list of titles below includes some of my favorite examples of how poetry can interact with artwork in surprising, beautiful ways, creating a unique experience for readers and viewers of all ages, including grown-ups.
En France, il est devenu traditionnel de dire que le livre numérique ne décolle pas. On perçoit bien qu'il existe un certain enthousiasme, mais il est difficile de convaincre, quand les tarifs de vente sont aussi rebutants. Pour la 5e année, le Baromètre SOFIA/SNE/SGDL présente les usages en vigueur, constatés à travers une enquête OpinionWay. Dans le cadre des 14es Assises du numérique, auteurs et éditeurs font le point.
Tablonautes, tablothèques, tablothécaires et applithécaires, ou comment répondre aux attentes de la génération “tablette” en bibliothèque ? C’est le thème que les participant(e)s ont ingénieusement exploré à la bibliothèque Marc-Favreau le 17 mars 2015 dans le cadre d’une démarche de laboratoire vivant. Constat : Dans les foyers comme à l’école, toutes les générations numériques adoptent la tablette.
À travers cet échange sur les usages liés aux tablettes numériques, diverses sources ont été explorées dont une enquête du Cefrio sur la mobilité au Québec publiée en janvier 2015.
