Ten recommendations for libraries to get started with research data management | LIBER

The LIBER E-Science working group has published its final report on research data management. LIBER installed the ‘E-Science working group’ in 2010 to investigate the role libraries can and should play in the field of E-Science. The group decided to focus on research data as it was felt to be the most urgent element of e-science that is of relevance to the community of (research) libraries. The group has held three workshops, the first dur-ing the LIBER-conference 2011 in Barcelona, the second during the IDCC 2011 conference in Bristol and the third and last one during the LIBER-conference 2012 in Tartu. The results of the first two workshops were used as a basis for compiling recommendations to the LIBER-community. The "10 recommendations for libraries to support re-search data management" were finalized and prioritized during the final workshop at the LIBER-conference in Tartu.

Beyond the Bullet Points: It is Time to Stop Trying to Save Libraries » Virtual Dave...Real Blog | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

"I believe the future of libraries is bright. I believe that libraries improve society. I believe that libraries are key to positive social transformation. I believe that librarians are facilitators of knowledge. I believe that librarians are the most important assets of any library. It is in my demonstration of these beliefs that I help ensure the future of libraries and librarians. I don’t need to save libraries. Libraries have survived for over 3,000 years. Libraries have survived famine, plagues, prejudice, censorship, and anti-intellectualism well before either of us came along. I don’t need to save libraries, I need to help transform them. The test of that transformation is not in a building, or a collection, or a service, or even the librarians; it is in the achievements of the community"

To Remain Relevant, Libraries Should Help Patrons Create — The Digital Shift

To Remain Relevant, Libraries Should Help Patrons Create — The Digital Shift | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

In the not-so-distant future, communities could view their local libraries as the place to go when they want to publish their own ebook, create and edit their latest song or video, or even design and print out plastic tools, toys, and prototypes. A growing number of libraries already offer their patrons tools such as recording equipment and sound and video editing software. Now, some are beginning to house 3D printers.

Mission of librarians > New librarianship

Mission of librarians > New librarianship | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

What is librarianship when it is unmoored from cataloging, books, buildings, and committees? In The Atlas of New Librarianship, R. David Lankes offers a guide to this new landscape for practitioners. He describes a new librarianship based not on books and artifacts but on knowledge and learning; and he suggests a new mission for librarians: to improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities.

Build Partnerships! Tools for Strategical Library Development

Build Partnerships! Tools for Strategical Library Development | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

Libraries are under pressure and need to develop and manifest themselves. Partnerships and collaborative innovation is a method to secure and develop the libraries’ influence on society.

Many libraries already collaborate with external partners, but very few libraries have a strategical and professional way of working with partnerships. Instead of considering partnerships and external collaboration as a method to continuously achieve the library’s overall objectives, the external collaboration is often used for small and  unexpected needs.

10 ways to make yourself indispensable at your workplace – Stephen's Lighthouse | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

It doesn’t work 100% of the time but you’ve probably noticed that there are some people that seem to survive every organizational restructuring.
In this latest economic downturn we’re seeing layoffs and downsizing on
a scale in all sectors that most of us have never seen. As for me, I’ve been through too many to count – survived some and didn’t make it out the other side on others.
