Search 80,0000 Media History Digital Library Artifacts ~ Free Technology for Teachers

Search 80,0000 Media History Digital Library Artifacts ~ Free Technology for Teachers | School Libraries | Scoop.it

by Richard Byrne

 

"The Media History Digital Library is a massive archive of documents about the history film, television, and radio. The library can now be searched and the documents viewed online through MHDL's new site called the Lantern. On Lantern you will find reviews and critiques of movies, books and playbills, many periodicals about the movie, television, and radio industries. Your search can be refined according to date, language, and publication type. You can also browse through collections curated by MHDL.

Applications for Education

"Two thoughts came to mind as I browsed through MHDL's Lantern. First, it's obviously an excellent resource for students studying the history and development of media. Second, through MHDL's Lantern you could find some good examples of how to write a critique. Your students could use those as models for writing their own critiques of movies or even of books."

Riding the Waves or Caught in the Tide? Insights from the IFLA Trend Report | School Libraries | Scoop.it

The IFLA Trend Report identifies five high level trends shaping the global information environment.

"E-lending in libraries and the treasure trove of personal data Today simply reading an e-book can reveal a great deal about you. How long it takes you to finish a chapter, your favourite parts, the speed and consistency of your reading and what you’re likely to borrow or buy next. In an economy increasingly built on ‘information mining’, this kind of data is of great value for publishers, distributors and authors"
