The Indispensable Library and Librarian | Tech Tidbits

Don't ever doubt it—librarians are in a service industry. By focusing on our unique patron needs and demographics, libraries will continue to be relevant in their schools and communities.

 

Our best librarians are constantly adapting and learning. The future is rich and full of possibility for librarians who are willing to continually assess and respond to their schools’ needs.

more...
Stephen Williams's curator insight, October 21, 6:39 PM

Printed or electronic, libraries will always provide an invaluable resource for their communities. Library staff will adapt to new technologies and new demands and will always be needed to guide patrons through a brave new world.

Presentation Zen: Bill Murray on storytelling

Presentation Zen: Bill Murray on storytelling | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
If you are any kind of fan of Bill Murray at all, then you will enjoy this interview he did with Howard Stern last week. Murray, who is famously hard to get a hold of, does not do a lot of interviews like this, so it was a rare treat. It's not a performance. This is just two guys talking, but there are some gems in there and even a few bits relevant for presenters and speakers of all types. You can listen to the audio here, but I highlight two of the more relevant points for presenters below.

'School libraries play a huge part in pupils' education' | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

In a society where one in three homes has no books owned by the children in them, it is essential that youngsters can find them elsewhere.


Recent research emphasises this importance. A study by the Institute of Education (2013) found reading for pleasure ‘to be more important for children's cognitive development between ages 10 and 16 than their parents' level of education.’
