Two Articles I Think You Should Read: Personal Branding AND ... | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

You may think this a throw away post however, there is real food for thought here and we have all seen those librarians at conferences wearing the outlandish earings and colourful homemade frocks but perhaps there is another valid reason why??

Psychologists Find a Surprising Thing Happens to Kids Who Read Harry Potter | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"The news: Harry Potter's greatest feat might not have been defeating Voldemort, but teaching young people around the world to battle prejudice. At least that's the finding of a new paper in the Journal of Applied Social Psychology, which claims reading the Harry Potter series significantly improved young peoples' perception of stigmatized groups like immigrants, homosexuals or refugees."

The Librarians Have Arrived! - Carisa Kluver | The Digital Media Diet #digitalshift

The Librarians Have Arrived! - Carisa Kluver | The Digital Media Diet #digitalshift | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

"In my estimation, librarians are the perfect ‘digital docents’ for the 21st century’s digital content. From what I’ve read, many in the field of library sciences have been fretting about where they fit into the digital shift, so the time is now to assert that librarians (as a profession) will be MORE in need by society in the future than ever before. There should be more jobs, not fewer, for library students. They are the professional and ethical curators of the digital world, essential to our cultural transition. And we couldn’t be in better hands!" - See more at: http://digitalmediadiet.com/?p=3205#sthash.G195kvCG.hNauw3dC.dpuf
