Mother Nature’s Pharmacy: Folk Remedies

Mother Nature’s Pharmacy: Folk Remedies | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Most folk remedies we use today, as well as most of the books on the subject, focus on medicinal herbs. It is not uncommon for patients to ask doctors about herbal supplements for various ailments, or to use them without a doctor’s recommendation. Libraries, therefore, need to stress caution and have books that thoroughly address the usage of folk remedies. Patrons should, of course, consult a health professional first, particularly when it is a serious medical condition they are seeking to treat.

Open-Source LibraryBox Project Branches Out | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

What if every ebook available from Project Gutenberg, along with songs and artwork produced within your local community, could be stored on a flash drive and be distributed wirelessly using a pocket-sized router?

Northrop Frye, Pete Colgrove and the price of fame | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

To mark the centennial of Northrop Frye's birth a week ago, I want to register -- not quite a disagreement with Martin Knelman's lament here about the lack of acclaim for our great Canadian literary critic.

Please Don’t Say This to a Librarian | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Oh, the things people say to librarians. When I’m dealing with the public, I’m usually sitting at a desk, out in the open, trying to look approachable enough so that people feel comfortable in asking me questions. This invites all kinds of verbal shenanigans...

La bougie senteur bibliothèque | L'objet du jour

La bougie senteur bibliothèque | L'objet du jour | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it
Vous raffolez de l'odeur des livres ? La bougie de Byredo est faite pour vous.

 

Par SARAH VERNHES

Non, ce n'est pas la dernière bougie au doux parfum de noix de coco. Ni celles aux saveurs exotiques des îles, dont les vapeurs s'apparentent parfois aux désodorisants pour toilettes. La maison de parfum suédoise Byredo sort des sentiers battus en proposant une bougie senteur bibliothèque. Elle rappellera l'odeur des pages tournées de nos dernières lectures et des livres entassés sur les étagères.

Thanks to a partnership between the Halifax Seaport Farmers’ Market and Libraries Nova Scotia, it’s easier than ever for people to enjoy and return books, DVDs and magazines borrowed from libraries across the province. On July 10, a new drop box at the market’s north entrance was officially unveiled. Accessible during the market’s hours of operation, the box is a simple, but effective way for borrowers to return library items while shopping for some of the province’s best locally grown and made products.

Bibliothèques et ebooks : la peur de la déception

Bibliothèques et ebooks : la peur de la déception | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Le prêt des livres numériques est-il voué à l'échec pour cause d'avant-gardisme ? D'après une étude de Pew, seuls 12 % des Américains ont emprunté au moins un ebook en bibliothèque en 2011. Comme d'habitude, les 12 % sont majoritairement de grands lecteurs : 29 livres en moyenne par an ! Pour l'accès facilité à la culture, on repassera : 62 % du même échantillon représentatif est dans un flou complet vis-à-vis de l'offre de prêt numérique de sa bibliothèque.

Oregon District Keeps School Libraries Open to Prevent Summer Slide | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Seven media centers throughout the district continue to keep their doors open two hours each week, and local kids are welcome to read, check out books, or attend read-alouds. Although it's not a new concept, it's the first time Salem-Keizer has kept summer hours-and so far, kids seem to be enjoying it, says Stephen Cox, the district's library media program specialist.
