Our Outside/In column will aim to bring information about what’s happening in the larger world of trends (outside) to see how they apply to libraries (in). Appropriately enough, our first column begins with a look at “calls to action”—ways in which you can use your online presence to inspire people to engage with their library.

Livres en scène

Livres en scène | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Le livre n'est pas en voie de disparition. Pour vous en convaincre : la preuve en images. Détourné de son utilisation première par des bibliothécaires fantaisistes,
le livre se met en scène. Il s'impose dans une nouvelle lecture visuelle.

Canadians: tell Parliament to preserve Canada's public domain!

Canadians: tell Parliament to preserve Canada's public domain! | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Canada celebrated New Year's Day this year by welcoming the likes of Ernest Hemingway and Carl Jung into the public domain just as European countries were celebrating the arrival of James Joyce and Virginia Woolf, 20 years after both entered the Canadian public domain. Canada's term of copyright meets the international standard of life of the author plus 50 years, which has now become a competitive advantage when compared to the United States, Australia, and Europe, which have copyright terms that extend an additional 20 years (without any evidence of additional public benefits).

The Act of Creating | Collection Development (Trendy Crafts)

The Act of Creating | Collection Development (Trendy Crafts) | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

It's hard to pinpoint when the current frenzy for handmade works began, but people young and old have embraced the DIY spirit. It's a pleasurable experience to create something with your own hands that's beautiful, fun, or useful. Some crafters find the act of creating to be relaxing and a fine way to relieve stress.

 

Aside from lack of circulation, how can you determine which titles have outlived their usefulness? Often, in the case of craft books, you can judge a book by its cover. If it's obviously dated, let it go. Holding on to older titles until the fashions come back in style isn't always the best option. If the models have hair and makeup that you haven't seen lately outside of a retro costume party, the book probably doesn't belong in your crafts collection. Besides, even if those 1980s “Cosby sweaters” ever do come back, a contemporary knitter will have devised a better way to knit them, most likely with yarns that are readily available.
