Occupy Wallstreet Library - Working the Reference Desk

Occupy Wallstreet Library - Working the Reference Desk | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

When I spend a day sitting at the library with my name-tag on, helping our patrons and brothers and sisters in the movement and get so many questions from people I start to know what it must feel like to be a Librarian. Questions about everything. So, even those of us who aren’t librarians, but are working at the library have to learn to think like we’re sitting at the reference desk.

Augmented Reality Coloring Pages

Augmented Reality Coloring Pages | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
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.

Les lecteurs et le livre numérique en France : les usages progressent

Les lecteurs et le livre numérique en France : les usages progressent | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

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.

Mobilité et mobinautes : Toutes les générations numériques adoptent la tablette | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Par Marie D Martel

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.

Rethink the library: Next gen becomes resource for tech, entrepreneurs

Rethink the library: Next gen becomes resource for tech, entrepreneurs | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

At some Colorado libraries, there are no overdue fines, no Dewey Decimal System and absolutely no shushing!

A revolution is underway. And leading the charge is Anythink, the rebooted seven-branch Adams County system, which has a smattering of digital studios, 3-D printers, photography labs and a cafe. Anythink has gone from one of the state's worst-funded library systems to a national leader within a decade.

On Monday, Anythink's innovation team was in Austin, Texas, at South by Southwest Interactive to inspire the tech community into collaborating with libraries. Joining a group of spirited librarians known as lib*interactive, the Anythink team hit the streets equipped with temporary tattoos, colorful chalk and a snappy slogan: "Not the same old shhh."
