With everything becoming available online we won't need librarians?

There have been many articles and blog posts lately debating the future of libraries. It is hard to imagine a school without one of these learning centers (where else would faculty meetings, testing, and baby showers take place?), but this post focuses on busting the myth that librarians will become obsolete.

The need to shift and widen school library advocacy efforts - Gary Hartzell

For more than twenty years, school librarians have focused the largest portion of their advocacy efforts on individual principals, superintendents, and board members, struggling to convince them that libraries should be integral and institutionalized elements of K-12 education. It hasn’t worked.


Libraries and librarians remain frighteningly vulnerable to cuts, even elimination, in schools everywhere. These individualized field-based advocacy efforts may have forestalled greater disaster, but they have not and cannot by themselves make libraries and librarians secure in our schools.


To do that librarians need to widen their advocacy efforts and give priority to two new targets: (1) the educational administration (Ed Ad) professors who shape beginning administrators’ perceptions and values and (2) the professional associations that have a powerful influence on how administrators approach their work challenges once they are in the field. In effect, this widening represents a shift from battling for current school leaders’ support to preemptively conditioning the next generation of administrators to support libraries as they take up their new responsibilities.

This is the direction that should be taken in Finland as well!

The Candid Librarian: Advocacy

The Candid Librarian: Advocacy | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it
But is that really advocacy? I think it is, because I tend to believe that if you have a program that others in your school see as valuable, than you are advocating for yourself. Your program should speak for itself.

 

A thoughtful post about whether what we do is advocacy, or not - where does it begin?  Included video clips.  DW

21 Tips For Marketers About Facebook Timeline For Fan Pages | Mari Smith

21 Tips For Marketers About Facebook Timeline For Fan Pages | Mari Smith | Källkritik och informationskompetens | Scoop.it

One of the biggest feature changes that many businesses are upset about is the removal of a default landing tab.

 

The good news is you can still have custom tabs, plus the like-gating element still functions. You just can’t set a default landing tab. However, each of your apps still has its own unique URL.

That means you can drive traffic to any “landing” page you wish – from within Facebook via ads, your profile and other places as appropriate; and from outside Facebook on your website/blog, other social profiles, tweets, email campaigns, email signature files, and so forth.

 

With the new Timeline design, you’ll notice the generously large cover image at the top of your page.

 

Here’s a list of 21 key points (each tip is analyzed in the full article) about the new Timeline design:

 

1. Preview...

2. March 30...

3. Cover Image...

4. Image rules...

5. Profile picture...
