Long Live Paper | The Scoop on Libraries | Scoop.it
While e-readers and multimedia may seem appealing, the idea of replacing an effective learning platform — the paper textbook — with a widely hyped but still unproven one is extremely dangerous.

How To Design Library Space with Kids in Mind | Library by Design | The Scoop on Libraries | Scoop.it

By considering the following principles, libraries can create children’s areas that provide a layered experience that works for youngsters of many ages and that provides multiple ways for children to learn, interact with other children or their caregivers, and achieve a sense of ­accomplishment.

University of Toronto Library School Annual Examinations, 1934-35

University of Toronto Library School Annual Examinations, 1934-35 | The Scoop on Libraries | Scoop.it

"It is interesting to see what has changed in the last seventy years and what has stayed the same. There is a much greater emphasis on children and story-telling than FIS has now, and it is possible to get a master's at FIS without knowing anything about library administration or the history of libraries, or indeed without having read any fiction. Some things are much the same: Book Selection is now called Collection Development, Evaluation, and Management, but fundamentals are unchanged. Of course, all of the advances in library and information studies since 1935 are covered at FIS, and even in a two-year program some things had to give way to allow time for metadata application profiles, law librarianship, research methods, user interface design, and much more."

 

Take a hard look at some of the examination questions that library school students took decades ago at previous incarnations of the University of Toronto Library School. Here are the exams from the 1934-35 schoolyear.

St. Louis Public Library. « Cannon Design Blog

St. Louis Public Library. « Cannon Design Blog | The Scoop on Libraries | Scoop.it

Designed and build in 1912 by Cass Gilbert, St. Louis’ Central Library displays the grandeur typical of the era, with facades of rusticated Maine granite, a monumental entrance, a front colossal arcade adorned with contrasting marble bas-relief panels, and an oval central pavilion surrounded by four light courts. However, adapting the library’s grand structure to its role as a 21st-century community information center has been a struggle. Cannon Design won the national competition to create the final design for the historic renovation.

The $70 million, two-year renovation and restoration of the 185,000 sf building updates the library’s research and service capabilities while restoring the grandeur of many of the library’s historic rooms. St. Louis Magazine recently recorded this excellent video with St. Louis Public Library Executive Director Waller McGuire.
