CPS has libraries—but where are the librarians?

CPS has libraries—but where are the librarians? | The New Library and Library Technology | Scoop.it

"Even after all the school closings, CPS still can't find the money to hire librarians for about half its schools."

 

In other words, we don't have a shortage of certified librarians. We have a shortage of money to pay the librarians.

But just to double check, I called Marci Merola, an official with the American Library Association, which happens to be located right here in Chicago.

"If Barbara Byrd-Bennett is looking for certified librarians, I can send her a bunch of resumes of librarians who are looking for jobs," Merola said. "There are many universities graduating librarians every year."

So there you have it Ms. Byrd-Bennett—call Marci! You can find her number in the book.

Libraries aid older people in search for computer knowledge, BY Eric Peddigree - NewsItem

Libraries aid older people in search for computer knowledge, BY Eric Peddigree - NewsItem | The New Library and Library Technology | Scoop.it

"As the world shifts to the digital age, a knowledge of computers is becoming an essential part of life.

The group having possibly the hardest transition is the elderly. The technology hasn't been a part of their lives as much as it has for younger people.

To help the elderly ease into the digital world, local libraries offer assistance to learn the ever advancing technology. Whether it is computers or e-readers, library staffs deal with people trying to find comfort using these tools on a daily basis.

At the Frackville Free Public Library, free computer classes are held from 10 to 11 a.m. every Thursday for people ages 55 and older. The hour is designated to help people learn basic computer skills, such as operating the machine or using the Internet."

This program allows seniors at two nursing homes and an independent living facility to have access to museum collections without having to leave their homes or the local library. Using Skype as the communication vehicle it allows seniors to ask questions and explore their local cultural institutions. What a great model to be expanded to other cultural institutions and other library systems.

The SWIB conference (Semantic Web in Libraries, German: "Semantic Web in Bibliotheken") is an annual conference focusing on Semantic Web and Linked Open Data (LOD) in the library world. It is held by turns in the Cologne region and Hamburg. The topics of talks and workshops at SWIB revolve around opening data, linking data and creating tools and software for LOD production scenarios. These areas of focus are supplemented by presentations of research projects in applied sciences, industry applications, and LOD activities in other areas. SWIB mainly targets IT staff, developers, librarians and researchers.

Trudy Raymakers's curator insight, March 31, 1:10 AM

The DPLA Metadata Application Profile (MAP) is designed to build on the experience of the Europeana Data Model (EDM). It incorporates feedback from the DPLA community and digital hub pilot participants to create a balanced framework that allows us to accommodate existing and emerging data models for library, archive, and museum resources.

DPLA MAP Version 3 is targeted towards exposing contributed metadata via the current version of the DPLA API. We anticipate continuing to evolve this model over time in response to ongoing community input and to extend the functionality provided by the DPLA in its API and its public portal.

A starting point blog | National Library of Australia | The New Library and Library Technology | Scoop.it

There are so many stories about Australia yet to be told. Trove’s job is to help you find them.

In preparation for this shiny new blog we spent a fair bit of time hunting through the Trove pictures zone looking for an image we could use to represent what it is we actually do. What is Trove? You can see one of the photos we found below. This, I suspect, is how many of our users see us – purveyors of Australian newspapers to the world. And fair enough. The Trove newspapers zone currently contains more than 120 million articles and receives about 70% of our web traffic. But Trove is much more.
