Fail fast, fail cheap - a new approach to public library innovation

Fail fast, fail cheap - a new approach to public library innovation | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

The title to this post is a quote from Corinne Hill, Director of Chattanooga Public Library that I just love. It's the public library version of Google's 'fail fast, fail often' mantra and it ironically reflects the reality of public library funding constraints, while also describing the creative, entrepreneurial energy her library embodies. Her inspirational approach to library innovation is something we can all learn from. We need to get away from fear of failure and move towards embracing new ideas, even if they don’t turn out to be quite the right ideas for us in the long run.

Read Slowly to Benefit Your Brain and Cut Stress

Read Slowly to Benefit Your Brain and Cut Stress | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Once a week, members of a Wellington, New Zealand, book club arrive at a cafe, grab a drink and shut off their cellphones. Then they sink into cozy chairs and read in silence for an hour.

 

The point of the club isn't to talk about literature, but to get away from pinging electronic devices and read, uninterrupted. The group calls itself the Slow Reading Club, and it is at the forefront of a movement populated by frazzled book lovers who miss old-school reading.

Europe: “Libraries May Be Permitted To Digitise Books Without Copyright Owner’s Consent, EU High Court Rules”

European Union governments may allow libraries to digitise books in their collection without rights owners consent in order to make them available at electronic reading posts, the European Court of Justice (ECJ) said on 11 September. If library users want to print works out on paper or store them on a USB stick, however, rights holders must be fairly compensated.

Travels as an Armchair Detective: Mysteries with a Sense of Place | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Summer's almost gone, and I haven’t been able to travel very far out of the city, so I’ve been doing the next best thing, vicariously experiencing far flung locales, and occasionally time periods, in the company of some of my favorite sleuths. Enjoy visiting these detectives' beats from your couch, in the park, on a beach, on the subway, or anywhere else you like to read.
