Lili, la bibli-connexion ambulante

Lili, la bibli-connexion ambulante | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
Elle s'appelle Lili (pour Library Live on Tour), et se propose d'apporter une expérience plus riche de la bibliothèque, pour tous.

 

Elle n'a pas le look d'un bibliobus. La mission de Lili, bibliothèque ambulante nouvelle génération, est de mettre à mal les idées reçues sur le bibliothèques, et offrir de nouveaux services aux membres des communautés qui ne fréquentent pas ou peu les bibliothèques. Cette opération séduction met ainsi l'accent sur l'information des usagers, et sur une image plus contemporaine des bibliothèques.

The Ebook of My Dreams

We all have our frustrations with ebooks. The problem isn’t just one of print vs electronic or Luddite vs early adopter. Even as I happily consume Kindle books on my iPad and the new Project Muse collection for work, I find that ebooks simply don’t do the things I want them to do... Here’s what I’d like to see.

Consider Accessibility When Buying E-readers

Consider Accessibility When Buying E-readers | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

For librarians who value equitable access to information for all, accessibility for people with disabilities should be second nature. We should automatically think about accessibility when buying resources for our library communities, including e-readers. But for the most part, we don’t. Primarily our problem is a lack of awareness.

My View: Why libraries matter more than ever

My View: Why libraries matter more than ever | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

The traditional notion of libraries continues to thrive in the age of Google and Facebook, but libraries are also transforming lives by providing patrons with the tools needed to compete and thrive in a 21st century marketplace. The public still has no-fee access to all types of information, with traditional services enhanced by technology. That’s enhanced - not replaced. Libraries have always embraced new forms and formats such as videos, DVD’s, audio formats, and now downloadable resources.

The Queens Library on Thursday will become the first public library system in New York to lend e-readers, a shift that underscores how libraries are adapting to help patrons keep up with technology. Each will be preloaded with 25 e-books in one of five genres: children's literature, teen books, mystery, romance, and best sellers. Fifty works of classic literature also will be loaded onto each device.

 

"It's what libraries do," said library President Thomas Galante. "They loan people things to access information."
