5 Ways to Use Pinterest in Your Library

5 Ways to Use Pinterest in Your Library | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a digital pinboard application which started just last year but has quickly become one of the top 10 most trafficked social networking websites according to Hitwise. During the second week in December the website had over 11 million visitors. This is pretty impressive considering that the site is still in the invite-only stage.

 

Pinterest’s inspiration boards have a lot of potential for libraries and other organizations for creating visual displays of resources and services. All of Pinterest’s boards and posts can be shared on Facebook and Twitter. Here are some ideas for how you can make the most of this popular social network for your library.

Metamaus, un livre pour en chasser un autre

Metamaus, un livre pour en chasser un autre | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Le succès a été phénoménal, inattendu, et il a surtout emporté son créateur qui, 25 ans plus tard, espère enfin s'en relever. Avec MetaMaus (Flammarion), le bédéiste américain Art Spiegelman revient en profondeur et en détail sur Maus, ce chef-d'œuvre du 9e art — unique bande dessinée au monde à avoir reçu un prix Pulitzer en 1992 — dont il a été le géniteur, puis le prisonnier. Un ultime tour de piste pour parler de la genèse de ce roman graphique, qui place souris et chat au temps du nazisme et des camps de concentration, de sa famille qui se trouve au cœur du récit, du poids de la consécration... Une dernière fois, avant de passer à autre chose.

En tout, 11 lignes qui représentent des genres littéraires (Science-fiction, polar, amour, Prix Nobel, Littérature Anglaise…) et les livres sont les stations, qui peuvent donc se retrouver à l’intersection de plusieurs lignes !

8th Fire: Waub Rice on collecting stories

8th Fire: Waub Rice on collecting stories | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

[A] diversity in storytelling and the ability to tie anecdotes together has carried over into the written word. As Aboriginal storytellers began to culturally adopt books as a viable avenue to strengthen traditions, they assembled stories into collections to serve as crucial reference points on a variety of experiences. Some of these story collections have become timeless in their own right; providing a cultural refuge for young Aboriginal people to relate to shared struggles and a window for non-Aboriginal readers into an evolving culture.
