Libraries, Archives and Museums: A Strategic Conversation: Opening Talk

"For generations Harvard's libraries, archives, and museums have been pre-eminent participants in support of the research, teaching, and learning carried out both within the university, and also beyond its walls. In an increasingly connected global society, interdisciplinary work is becoming the norm and researchers increasingly seek and share information across formats, genres, and institutional settings. To support users and to continue to grow and thrive, libraries, archives, and museums must work and grow together as never before. This "strategic conversation" brings together those who have given thought to these issues. They have inspired changes and faced challenges along the way. Three presenters, one of each from the domains of libraries, archives, and museums, will outline the vision they bring to their institutions, how they envision the major points of commonality, their greatest hurdles, and how the lessons learned in collection development of physical collections, do or do not apply to collection development in the digital domain.
Libraries: Tom Hickerson, Vice Provost of Libraries and Cultural Resources, University of Calgary

Museums: Holly Witchey, Professor, Johns Hopkins University; Interim Director, Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts

Moderator: Gunter Waibel, Director, Digitization Program, Smithsonian"

Caroline Kennedy to Librarians: 'Your work is truly life changing.' | At Your Library

Caroline Kennedy to Librarians: 'Your work is truly life changing.' | At Your Library | The Information Professional | Scoop.it
Last week, Caroline Kennedy was the keynote speaker at the Carnegie Corporation of New York/New York Times I Love My Librarian Award Ceremony in New York City.

Librarians:

"Professionals who are excited about their changing role in a changing world - who are dedicated to serving others, who respect scholarship, and who understand that you are our guides on a life long journey of intellectual collaboration and collaborative composition. Your work is truly life changing"

As Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote so many years ago, ”Be a little careful about your library. Do you foresee what you will do with it? Very little to be sure. But the real question is, 'What will it do with you?' You will come here and get books that will open your eyes, and your ears, and your curiosity, and turn you inside out or outside in.”

New Librarianship and the Library as Platform

"New Librarianship and the Library as Platform" Ticer 15th International Summer School on Digital Libraries 2012, Tillburg, Netherlands. Abstract: Change in academic libraries is nothing new."

 

"In his most recent lecture presented in Tillburg, Netherlands, R. David Lankes enjoins librarians to be "active in online education, new models of student learning, and helping the faculty adjust to disruptive change."  Furthermore, he suggests, "Rather than being the heart of the university centered on a collection, libraries must become hubs that spread new practice throughout the organization."
