Community as Collection in a socially networked world - empower your library today!

Community as Collection in a socially networked world - empower your library today! | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it

Community as collection could be a 'socially networked' point of entry for an information seeker to a topic area . From the perspective of curation it can be understood as two things: First, establishing a relationship between the library and community institutions (eg. Hospitals, civic associations, support groups) so that an information seeker can engage members of these institutions in a conversation regarding their needs. Second, by establishing relationships with community institutions, librarians can become aware of the needs of the community and curate their collection based on these needs. To understand how Community as Collection might work in a library, it is important to first briefly explore the definition of community....

What We Need: job satisfaction and Library 2.0 innovation.

Each year, Library Journal recognizes 50 or so emerging leaders in the profession as Movers & Shakers. These library professionals are passionate about the work they do and are moving the profession forward, often in creative and innovative ways. Movers & Shakers ourselves, we each had different experiences following our recognition, which confirmed what we'd heard from our Mover & Shaker (M&S) colleagues. Some enjoyed and were encouraged by amazing institutional support and acknowledgement, while others received minimum internal support for their innovative work. This made us wonder how the entire cohort has been shaped, encouraged, or discouraged by our institutions. While we tend to be highly self-motivated on the whole, all of us are affected by organizational culture and management that can either spur us on or deter us. Do Movers & Shakers have supportive relationships within our institutions? What can organizations do to foster and encourage creativity and innovation in library service?

In a new world of informational abundance, content curation is a new kind of authorship

In a new world of informational abundance, content curation is a new kind of authorship | Social Networking for Information Professionals | Scoop.it
these tools allow us to direct attention to destinations where it can be sustained with more concentration and immersion. They offer a wayfinding system that is, on the whole, the polar opposite of traditional media’s: While “old media” fought against the scarcity of information, new media are fighting the overabundance of information. The resulting directional-curatorial nature of our communications tools is something that fits comfortably neither in the “text” checkbox nor in the “speech” one. It does, however, allow people to discover the most relevant, interesting, and impactful information, in any medium, and then relate it to other information in a networked ecosystem of meaning that helps us better understand the world and each other.

Coping with Continual Motion

Focusing on competencies—the skills, knowledge, behaviors, and attitudes that are involved in a job—can help the library profession keep its footing. When well done, they can define a framework for library practice that encompasses the solidity of tradition and the flexibility to absorb future shock. Identifying competencies critical to the vitality of the institution provides a basis for change management for the institution and the individual. While the nature and pace of change present significant challenges, many core values and services hold firm.
