Evaluer la pertinence d'une source web | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Désormais, il faut bien le reconnaitre, le web fait partie d’une des plus importante source d’informations lorsque l’on met en place une veille strategique, et ce quelque soit le secteur d’activité qui nous intéresse. La numérisation des documents entraine chaque jour l’indexation de milliers de nouveaux documents dans le web visible et le web invisible, susceptibles de nous intéresser. Mais comment faire le tri dans cette masse informe d’informations ? Comment séparer le bon grain de l’ivraie. Voici quelques conseils pour faire face à cette situation.

School Library Builds 'The Cave' to Attract Boy Readers | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Haynes researched how to design such a space, and studied the "Guys Read" website, launched by author and former U.S. kids' book ambassador Jon Scieszka. It includes tips on how to create guy-friendly reading areas, or what Scieszka calls, a "field office."
