Libraries as Community Publishers: How to Turn the Tables, by Peter Brantley

Libraries as Community Publishers: How to Turn the Tables, by Peter Brantley | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it
Libraries as Community Publishers: How to Turn the Tables http://t.co/C1tYsCQO via @OUPAcademic #publishing #books...

 

"This is just one option among many possibilities available to public libraries. I am not naive about the need for a library publishing imprint to have at least a basic supporting staff at a time when budgets are tight. But it is at least within arms reach, and it provides opportunities for librarians to grow and engage in new services that have a stronger future than those dealing with analog culture. Having one foot in the community and one in the network, libraries can help define a new cultural commons."

South Jersey high school librarians teaching students how to use high technology in their research

South Jersey high school librarians teaching students how to use high technology in their research | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it
A steady murmur of voices emanated from the Cedar Creek High School library. But as librarian Christine Finn walked toward a table of students, it wasn’t to quiet them down, but to assist in their history project creating a wiki on the Great Plains.

 

Librarians (or media specialists as they are also called) say the school library has become less a static place to look up information and more of an active jumping off point for learning.

Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0 - facet publishing

Information Literacy Beyond Library 2.0 - facet publishing | New-Tech Librarian | Scoop.it

This new book picks up where the best-selling Information Literacy meets Library 2.0 left off. In the last three years the information environment has changed dramatically, becoming increasingly dominated by the social and the mobile. This new book asks where we are now, what is the same and what has changed, and, most crucially, how do we as information professionals respond to the new information literacy and become a central part of the revolution itself?

 

Some of the key topics covered are:
• the evolution of ‘online’ into the social web as mainstream
• the use of social media tools in information literacy
• the impact of mobile devices on information literacy delivery
• shifting literacies, such as metaliteracy, transliteracy and media literacy, and their effect on information literacy.
