Convinced of the need to be a conent curator in my school - looking for the best way to start this, how to implement a manageable plan and ways to increase my content curation competency.

 

Lucy Wyatt's curator insight, October 7, 2013 12:44 PM

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

What is Pinterest and could my library use it? [Learning 2.0 update] | Public Library Services | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Mylee Joseph:

 

Some of the suggestions for libraries:

 

"What could a library do with Pinterest?

• Use it to drive traffic to your website and online collections
• Use it to promote image collections (copyright permitting) like the New York Public Library Picture of the Day pinboard
• Use it to promote children's programming and offer alternative craft ideas for at home use
• Collect images that relate to your local studies area like the Chicago History Museum pinboard
• Hold a class to show library clients how to explore and use Pinterest for themselves..."

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article: 

"Over the past few years I must have heard the phrase ‘everyone is a publisher nowadays’ a thousand times or more. It’s largely accurate, due to the rise of social media, but I think we are mainly ‘curators’, as opposed to ‘publishers’.

 

Content curation is something that many of us will be familiar with, even if we don’t think of ourselves as curators. We instinctively find and share interesting content with our personal and professional networks. We follow others who share the kind of links that engage and entertain.

 

Here are my 17 tips to help you become even better at content curation, with one eye on Twitter:

 

1) Set up some feeds

2) Make the most of email alerts

3) Get to grips with Twitter Search

4) Use advanced search queries

5) Follow the 70/30 rule

6) Find the right tools for the job

7) Own a niche

8) Read, read, read!

9) Write, write, write!

10) Timing is crucial

11) Aggregate the good stuff

12) Tune in to the right people

13) Mix up your tweets

14) Don't be afraid of the detail

15) Consider repeating yourself

16) Try to avoid the obvious

17) Use a notebook

 

Each tips is analyzed with some details. Read full article here: http://j.mp/K8AVt4
