The Futurist Interviews Librarian Futurist David Lankes | World Future Society

The Futurist Interviews Librarian Futurist David Lankes | World Future Society | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it

As more information moves online, traditional libraries are losing relevance, but librarians are becoming more important than ever. This is according to R. David Lankes, author of The Atlas of New Librarianship (MIT Press, 2011). Himself a librarian—he is the director of Syracuse University’s Library and Information Science Program and an associate professor in Syracuse’s School of Information Studies—Lankes sees librarians’ roles evolving into that of “facilitators of conversation” who interact with their communities to support each one’s informational and learning needs. Rick Docksai, staff editor for THE FUTURIST, spoke with Lankes about his book and his views on libraries’ future.

What Schools Are Really Blocking When They Block Social Media | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Can social media be a distraction? Absolutely. Will some students access questionable content? Yes. But many students use social media to enhance their learning, expand the reach of the classroom and fashion their own personal learning networks.

The Importance of Doubt, Asking Questions and Not Knowing

The Importance of Doubt, Asking Questions and Not Knowing | School Libraries around the world | Scoop.it
Why is it so important to doubt, question everything and not know?! Check out Socrates’ article on SingularityWeblog.com to find out.

 

Not knowing, just like other cases of being uncomfortable, is a great incentive for personal growth. Progress always comes at the point of resistance. Getting uncomfortable and willing to be uncertain, to not know, to ask questions, to err and to fail, is the best and only way to learn, grow, progress and move forward.

International Perspectives on School Library Education: From Face to
Face to Distance Education (Volume 18, Number 2, July 2012)

 

This issue of School Libraries Worldwide will center on the theme
of International Perspectives on School Library Education: From Face to

For this issue, we encourage papers that explore how changes in the profession as well as in education delivery systems have influenced school library education programs.

 

School Libraries Worldwide also welcomes submissions of excellent research on any topic relating to school librarianship for the open portion of the journal.

 

Deadline for submissions of full papers: April 15, 2012.

 

Authors interested in contributing to this issue should contact the guest editors, Allison G. Kaplan at agkaplan@wisc.edu
or Gail Dickinson at GDickins@odu.edu
