Radical Librarianship: how ninja librarians are ensuring patrons' electronic privacy

Radical Librarianship: how ninja librarians are ensuring patrons' electronic privacy | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it
Librarians in Massachusetts are working to give their patrons a chance to opt-out of pervasive surveillance. Partnering with the ACLU of Massachusetts, area librarians have been teaching and taking workshops on how freedom of speech and the right to privacy are compromised by the surveillance of online and digital communications -- and what new privacy-protecting services they can offer patrons to shield them from unwanted spying of their library activity.

Robin Good's curator insight, March 3, 2014 12:53 PM


Crystal Renfro, a subject and Faculty Engagement Librarian at Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia, introduces the relevance of content curation to academic librarians beyond the notions generally prescribed by Digital and Data Curation specialists. 

She highlights content curation importance and reason d'etre by explaining the goal it is trying to achieve (helping us finding what is truly relevant) and providing references both to Beth Kanter and to my own work, to help academics better appreciate the benefits of embracing content curation.


A good introduction to a new way of looking at curation for digital archive specialists and academic information librarians. 


Rightful. Informative. Good introduction. 7/10

School libraries and teacher-librarians: evidence of their contribution to student literacy and learning

School libraries have the potential to be a vibrant hub for learning, information, reading promotion, creativity, student leadership and social interaction within their school community. From an equity perspective, the school library is one of few places in a school open to all students, teachers and parents. In addition to providing a congenial learning environment and ‘safe haven’, the school library often offers a venue for extra-curricular activities, as well as school community events and meetings.

So You Think You Want to Be a Librarian?

So You Think You Want to Be a Librarian? | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

Librarianship today is about greeting each customer (in person or online) and making sure that his or her library visit is one of the best experiences of the day. Most importantly, it’s about listening to our users’ needs and connecting them with the information, resources, and services that can help them get on with their lives.

Hommage au bibliothécaire, héros des temps modernes | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

"Bien que très sinon trop discret, le/la bibliothécaire a un rôle charnière dans le monde du livre, preuve que les vrais héros des temps modernes sont rarement ceux que l'on croit. En cette fin d'année, il est temps de lui rendre un hommage mérité. Les bibliothèques aussi bien traditionnelles que numériques sont largement couvertes par les médias, mais qu'en est-il de ceux et celles qui les font fonctionner ?"
