Graphing phrases using social networking tools helps understand the impact of keyword phrases. This analysis focuses on Urban Librarianship.


Posted by Bradley Woodruff 

"Because Urban Librarianship is a newer trend in the field of library and information science, a potential keyword phrase that may work and produce “hits” could be the keyword phrase “library trends”. This keyword phrase is relevant to the “Urban Librarianship” video, is a term users and prospective students may come up with on their own, and is being used by other videos on the YouTube network, but is not so overused that SLIS will be lost."

Urban Libraries in 2012: Under Pressure and In Demand - Larry Eichel (report)

Urban Libraries in 2012: Under Pressure and In Demand - Larry Eichel (report) | The Information Professional |

Larry Eichel:

"Revenue-challenged local governments have cut back on contributions to library budgets - at a time when libraries are being asked to perform a new and changing range of functions."


"Our new report, "The Library in the City: Changing Demands and a Challenging Future," looks at the recent experiences of 15 big-city library systems across the country. From 2008 through 2010, when the recession took a big bite out of local government revenues, the libraries saw their government funding cut by an average of 10 percent. These cuts resulted in roughly proportional reductions in staff and hours. And yet, in 13 of the 15 systems studied, library use is higher today than it was six years ago in terms of visits, circulation or both--as this interactive graphic shows."
