Libraries Changed My Life

Libraries Changed My Life | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it
Real life accounts from library patrons whose lives have been changed for the better by libraries.

 

Libraries Changed My Life (LCML) is the brainchild of two librarians from two parts of the country. Ingrid is a children’s and teen librarian from New York City. Natalie is a systems librarian from rural Florida. Together we’re hoping to create a place where people can tell their library stories, and those who are questioning the value of libraries can see their amazing impact. LCML is an independent, grassroots movement to spread library love across the country.

Why we’re here:

Libraries are valuable—and valued. In addition to traditional services like book lending, research help and children’s programs (still the services Americans value most), libraries offer free wifi, technology training, free or low-cost public meeting spaces, affordable printing, access to music and the arts, and other services our neighborhoods need.

This is how we do it: Social media at Christchurch City Libraries

This is how we do it: Social media at Christchurch City Libraries | The Information Specialist's Scoop | Scoop.it

Posted by Donna:

" [...] discuss how we at Christchurch City Libraries use social media – what we think is important, what we do, and why we do it. Hopefully it opens up a dialogue amongst Kiwi librarians. Wouldn’t it be grand if our information community were more forthcoming about sharing information on making the best use of social media?"

 

Topics covered in the article:

 

"- Many voices

- We talk about all sorts of things – events, new books, new stuff on the website.

- Content is king

- Made you look (Twitter)

- Looking at the tools and processes

- The power of the image

- The social catalogue

- A reading list on social media in New Zealand public libraries"
