App lets FirstVoices speak - Leader Post | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

The new alphabet worked for generations, but computers and smartphones that don't support such languages have created a barrier for aboriginals, particularly youth, who want to combine their ancestral dialects with the latest technology.

But an iPhone and iPad app released this week called FirstVoices aims to bridge that gap, allowing users to chat using their native language for the first time.

Maker Faire KC 2012

As I texted a friend, this maker culture “screams” for libraries to be present. Libraries have the resources available for people to access (quilting stencils, knitting books, woodworking, car repair manuals?), libraries already provide some programming around the maker culture (altered books, knitting clubs, candlemaking, duct tape), and in many cases, we have areas that these people can use to meet and create. One library has gone as far as housing a hacker space on site!

Cat Librarian Calendar | Pawesome :: Power to the Pets

Cat Librarian Calendar | Pawesome :: Power to the Pets | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Cats and librarians go together like chocolate and peanut butter (or so I’ve been told; for me it’s more like chocolate and Ajax). With that in mind, there’s a fun new librarian-centric calendar in the works for 2013. Cat Librarian Calendar, which will feature librarians with their feline friends, is asking for submissions. Inspired by the hilarious and strangely titillating Men of the Stacks calendar, which raised money for the It Gets Better project, this calendar will raise money for Project Gutenberg, one of the best things to ever grace the interwebs in the history of, like, ever. If you know any cat-loving librarians, have them submit their nerdy, kitty photos to Cat Librarian!

Game of Thrones Author Draws SRO Crowd

Game of Thrones Author Draws SRO Crowd | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Martin spoke last, recounting how the effects of growing up in a federal housing project and having no money influenced his life. For example, the housing projects didn’t allow people to have cats or dogs, so Martin kept pet turtles in bowls with toy castles and eventually began writing stories about them.

 

But what changed Martin’s life, he said, was reading Robert A. Heinlein’s Have Space Suit—Will Travel, which led him to decide that “I like this ‘reading books’ thing.”

HASTINGS, Neb. - Seven different parks in Hastings will become places for reading as part of a new program this summer called Storywalk.

Sherman Alexie: Librarians Are My Superheroes | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Alexie began his talk by saying that librarians “are my superheroes.” Because he grew up on a small Indian reservation in Washington state, Alexie said he checked out everything from his library—nearly 90% of all the books, he estimates—because it introduced him to the outside world.

Applis de recommandation

Applis de recommandation | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Les applications de bibliothèques commencent à se développer. La plupart offrent accès à des ressources (catalogues, bases de données, ressources numériques) et des services (accès au compte-lecteur, visite virtuelle, renseignements, réservation...) qu'on pourrait presque qualifier d'habituels et, parfois, on trouve sur de petites perles.

 

Ainsi les applications sont plus efficaces lorsqu'elles sont réservées à un service ou une fonction particuliers, laissant les principales informations et accès aux ressources aux sites mobiles. C'est ce qu'on compris les établissements ci-dessous qui nous propose de manière pertinente et originale des applications de recommandation de lectures.
