Turning Technology Invisible: Why School Libraries are More Important Than Ever

Turning Technology Invisible: Why School Libraries are More Important Than Ever | Linking Libraries & Learning | Scoop.it

In the model of the school library of my era (and I would say most of today's institutions), the librarian saw themselves as THE curator of information. They were trained to find the best resources -- books, periodicals, media (although back in my day that meant filmstrips and movies) available for the teachers to deliver the curriculum, and doing it on a pauper's budget.

Today life is different. The Internet can deliver an unlimited amount of quality information.

That's one of the problems.

Adding to the e-book mayhem

Adding to the e-book mayhem | Linking Libraries & Learning | Scoop.it

The new Follett Digital Reader app will allow students to check out books to their mobile devices from the Follett SHelf, a collection of e-books that the library can build. Follett’s pricing is very appealing to schools, as they aren’t charging an annual fee (this continues their policy of not doing that) nor will they be charging an additional “mark-up” for e-book content.  The Follett Shelf product also stands alone from Destiny, so if a district doesn’t have Destiny, they could have the Follett Shelf book collection for student check-out.
