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

What if we considered content curation as a value, not just a means to market products & services?

Tips to improve curation and benefit both you and other users

'Timothy Leyfer's curator insight, January 24, 2014 1:20 PM

"Explain, always clearly why something you are curating/communicating is relevant. Contextualize."

This is just one of the five great points from Sam Burroughs that we should consider when communicating relevant information to people on our list.

There are four other great tips equally as important, that we should use when communicating information to others.

In today's fast-paced world the information that we are trying to communicate to others should be user centered.

Content curation is really important. This article explains why it is important for us to comment on why we selected and added any article. For this very reason I have selected it :) 

 

Nancy White's curator insight, October 2, 2013 10:38 AM

I love the way examining curating from the perspective of other disciplines adds such richness to our definition and understanding of what it is, and what we are trying to accomplish with the act of curating.

I like this quote from the article


"Curation is about people. It’s about knowing what people want, when they want it, and how they want it. As smart as computers are (and will be), I think we all appreciate the front-and-center engagement of humans with high degrees of expertise in certain subjects, guiding the curation process."

Lori Wilk's curator insight, January 12, 2014 7:28 PM

Content curation will continue to grow and curators will get more help from computers to get the work done.

Maria Persson's curator insight, October 30, 2013 6:03 PM

This is definately something that anyone in the coming new century needs to learn how to do effectively.  Do we want regurgitation or depth of learning from knowledge gained?   I value, for example, how Scoop.it allows for the 'web interface' to be looked after, by them ,and the curation and learning happens with us!

 

Thanks for sharing this Robin Good!
