Digital Citizenship and Public Libraries

Digital Citizenship and Public Libraries | Technology & Libraries | Scoop.it

Libraries Introduce New Rules for 3D Printing

Libraries Introduce New Rules for 3D Printing | Technology & Libraries | Scoop.it
3D printing are such that practically anything can be made, prompting libraries to introduce new rules.
KelliW's insight:

As a librarian, I take issue with the closing statement "One thing is for sure, 3D printing has certainly changed the role of the librarian, now they are not only custodians of information, they are also upholding the law, and helping to teach new technology."

Librarians were teaching new technology and upholding the law (e.g., copyright) long before 3D printing came to libraries.

Library Science, Not Library Silence

Library Science, Not Library Silence | Technology & Libraries | Scoop.it
It’s no secret that I’m a fan of adding information professionals to digital asset management teams. While the rest of us are focused on the how-much and how-to of making a new DAM fly, it’s an information professional’s job to ask, What are you trying to do? It’s a question that can lead to more successful DAM programs, but it’s a question that is best asked by someone who knows what to do with the answer. And those people are all too often not in the room.& Topic: Digital Asset Management.
KelliW's insight:

This article is written by someone who clearly gets librarians and library science.

KelliW's insight:

"libraries cannot hope to beat Amazon, but if they can provide a similarly convenient experience to patrons, and they can complement it with services that Amazon can’t offer, then they will continue to play an important role in the digital age."
