Les technologies interactives en bibliothèque

Les technologies interactives en bibliothèque | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Face à ces changements, notre environnement et nos espaces, qu’ils soient publics ou privés, sont à redéfinir pour une meilleure harmonie et une meilleure intégration de la technologie. Les espaces en bibliothèque n’échappent pas à ce constat. La bibliothèque intelligente doit s’approprier le principe de l’informatique ubiquitaire pour créer des espaces intelligents et interactifs. Ces espaces seront axés sur l’usager et lui offriront de nouvelles façons de découvrir et d’explorer la bibliothèque. Pour la bibliothèque, il s’agit d’une nouvelle stratégie pour séduire les usagers.

Tiny Tips for Library Fun: Cookie Club Goodness

Tiny Tips for Library Fun: Cookie Club Goodness | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

In another in our library's series of "stealth" or "passive" programs, we developed a Cookie Club initiative in December and January to encourage families to use the library often during this often slow library-use season. Kids up to age 10 could join up by simply picking up a little business-card-sized "Cookie Club" card. Then each time they checked out books they got a stamp on their card and a paper cookie to put their name on and could put in a "cookie jar" on the wall.

Messages that Stick: A hip marketing concept can work for libraries

Messages that Stick: A hip marketing concept can work for libraries | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

It’s a concept known as “permission marketing,” the privilege—not the right—of delivering anticipated, personal, and relevant messages to people who actually want to get them, according to marketing guru Seth Godin (pictured), who coined the term. The theory being that if the audience opts in to receive updates, they’ll pay closer attention than they would to a standard broadcasted message.

School Assemblies – Make the Kids the Stars of the Show!

I’ll be honest with you – I find it challenging. 20 minutes is a long time to keep that large and diverse of group engaged. My solution? Let the kids be the stars of the show! (Or, to put a more cynical spin on it – make the kids do the work for you.) I wrote a series of brief scripts describing very popular and easily recognizable children’s books. I call up a series of student volunteers, give them some simple props, and ask them to read aloud the scripts. The kids in the audience have to guess the book. And guess what – they always do!

National book count tallies Canadians’ love of reading

National book count tallies Canadians’ love of reading | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Canadians love to read, and now we have the numbers to prove it. For the second year in a row, the literacy advocacy coalition known as the National Reading Council has tallied book sales and library loans for a typical week in January (which, it should be noted, is a notoriously slow month for the book trade). The group found that, across Canada, a total of 3.4 million English- and French-language books were bought and circulated from Jan. 23 to 29, up 26 per cent from a comparable period last year, when the figure was 2.7 million.

Bethany House’s 1979 ground-breaking publication of Janette Oke’s Love Comes Softly, which combined an evangelical worldview with a historical romance, filled a niche long ignored by mainstream publishers, and is credited with pioneering modern inspirational fiction.
