Download, embed and share The Social Librarian infographic. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon.

 

"Social today means so much more than sending a tweet or posting to Facebook. The social librarian is enmeshed in the fabric of the Internet of Things as curator, educator, filter and beacon. In this complex, dynamic and demanding environment, librarians are extending themselves and empowering library users.

In recognition of this, Elsevier's Library Connect Newsletter (@library_connect) and Joe Murphy (@libraryfuture), Librarian & Technology Analyst/Trend Spotter, offer up a visual portrait of The Social Librarian, and invite you to download and post, share on your social streams, and discuss with your library stakeholders.

Can E-Books and Libraries Coexist? – Infographic

Can E-Books and Libraries Coexist? – Infographic | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
By Bob Al-Greene
"Print -- literature, journalism, you name it -- has experienced an extended obituary over the last decade, alongside the rise of digital media.
But a recent Pew study found that even as sales of e-readers like Nook and Kindle grow swiftly, young people still frequent libraries more than you might think, and print books remain popular. Even the most plugged-in lit fans are not ready to abandon print as a dead medium. In fact, e-book readers consume more books annually, no matter the format."

Infographic: Library struggles since the recession - American Library Association's Library | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

"The American Library Association created an infographic to illustrate the struggles libraries have been confronted with since the recession began.

We've been following recent budget cuts and coping mechanisms, such as fundraising videos and offering updated technologies, as part of our Libraries in Crisis series. But to see these things visualized and quantified helps put things into perspective.

According to the infographic, WiFi usage in libraries is up 74%, and computer usage is up 60%, but funding has been decreased by 57%. Additionally, 62% of libraries report being the only location offering free public access to the Internet in their communities."

6 Reasons to Visualize Your Data in the Age of Distraction - Loren Sorenson

6 Reasons to Visualize Your Data in the Age of Distraction - Loren Sorenson | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

This piece was posted by Loren Sorenson for Hubspot, I selected it because as she says "If you aren’t prepared for the visual content revolution, you may be left in the dust.

 

Not convinced? Let's take a look at exactly how visual contentis positively contributing to marketing strategies -- it may just give you the push you need

 

"Learn why visual content is a critical part of your content creation strategy.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

**People remember only 20% of what they read

 

**83% of learning is visual

 

Condenses and Explains Large Amounts of Information

 

**Today, there is too much information on the Internet you have about 3 seconds to catch someone’s eyes so they'll consume your information.

 

Gives Your Brand an Identity

 

**Visual content draws people in, letting viewers better understand your brand's identity

 

Drives User Engagement

 

**If you've ever read a book with a child, you probably know they find pictures more interesting than words; but are adults really that different?
