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

Editor's Column: 5 ways libraries are using Instagram

Editor's Column: 5 ways libraries are using Instagram | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it
Alongside universities, libraries and librarians are now using social media platforms to connect with users in a range of exciting and innovating ways. The latest platform that libraries are experimenting with is Instagram, which allows users to take photos on their smart phones, apply exciting filters and add hashtags, and then share these images online with their followers. Amy Mollett and Anthony McDonnell investigate how libraries are making the most of this visually-engaging platform.
