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.

Should Libraries Censor What is 3D Printed Within Their Walls? - 3DPrint.com

Should Libraries Censor What is 3D Printed Within Their Walls? - 3DPrint.com | Professional development of Librarians | Scoop.it

BY BRIAN KRASSENSTEIN:

"As more libraries begin adopting this amazing technology, and the general public begins to realize the vast number of applications for such a technology, I believe that a number of new questions will have to be answered by those overseeing its use.  Questions such as “Should we allow anyone of any age to use our printers?”, “Should we censor what is printed by these machines?”and “What sort of oversight and rules should be put into place?”

 

David Lee King and Kate Marek give their opinions.
