E99.P85, Or: The Case of Pocahontas in the Library

E99.P85, Or: The Case of Pocahontas in the Library | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

"The library where I work has recently been working on a large project converting from the Dewey Decimal system of classification to the Library of Congress. It’s been taking us a while, but we’ve finally moved on to the last phase: our large collection of media, including DVDs, video games, audiobooks, etc.

 

Disney’s Pocahontas was assigned a main entry of E99.P85. For those who don’t have LoC call numbers memorized (which I’m assuming is most people), E is the broad heading for American History. Numbers in the range around E90 are specifically American Indian History, and E99 is for History of Tribal Groups. The P85 specifies further the tribe the book is about.

 

Pocahontas was being classified as a historically accurate documentary."

The New York Public Library (NYPL) has launched Frankenstein: The Afterlife of Shelley’s Circle, the second edition of its free “Biblion: The Boundless Library” app for iPads.

Making Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones

Making Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

I have the Game of Thrones theme song stuck in my head. It might just stay lodged there for an entire year, until Season 3 starts. It will definitely keep playing until I hold a finished copy of Inside HBO’s Game of Thrones in my hands, the book that the Chronicle team has been developing in complete secrecy for the past year.

10 Contemporary Novels Based on Classic Lit That Are Actually Worth Your Time

10 Contemporary Novels Based on Classic Lit That Are Actually Worth Your Time | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

This week saw the American release of Francesca Segal’s debut novel, The Innocents, a superb modern-day retelling of The Age of Innocence, Edith Wharton’s classic novel of upper class scandal. Now, adaptation, cross-pollination and flat out stealing are nothing new in the literary world — the trend of adaptation and re-adaptation is rampant...we’re so excited by The Innocents that we decided to put together an entire reading list of wonderful contemporary novels based on works of classic literature, so you can indulge in the present and the past in equal measure.

Enhanced ebooks are bad for children finds American study

Enhanced ebooks are bad for children finds American study | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Researchers at the Joan Ganz Cooney Center in New York worked with 32 pairs of parents and their three to six-year-old children for the small study, Print Books vs Ebooks, which gave each family a print book and either a basic ebook or an enhanced ebook version of the same title. Enhanced ebooks were found to distract children from the story, and their bells and whistles prevented children from remembering as many narrative details.
