Bad news for books? The survival of libraries lies in positive promotion

Bad news for books? The survival of libraries lies in positive promotion | University of Nicosia Library | Scoop.it
The public should know about what they're missing out on, not just how many libraries are missing in action
University of Nicosia Library's insight:

It's difficult these days to find a piece of good news about libraries. No one seems to want to write about it being impossible to find a space in the quiet study area at Dalston's CLR James Library because it's so well used. Hardly ever are there any reviews of the thousands of pounds worth of online resources available to every library card holder – for free and accessible from the comfort of their own homes.

 

[...] but what about the fact that across the country there's a whole network of warm, comfortable, safe places where you can sit and chat and read the papers, look for jobs, improve your mental health, read, play and learn without any money ever changing hands? Well, that's not so newsworthy.

People Who Use E-Readers Dive Far Deeper Into Books

People Who Use E-Readers Dive Far Deeper Into Books | University of Nicosia Library | Scoop.it

“Digital publishing is rapidly becoming a haven for struggling writers—but it turns out the format might hold similar potential for struggling readers too. A new survey by UK charity Quick Reads indicates that adult readers tend to read more and stick with books longer if they’re using an e-reader. According to the survey, 48 percent of UK adults who use e-readers say the technology gets them to read more. In addition to that, 41 percent of respondents reported that being able to look up words they don’t know makes reading easier, and over half say that being able to change the size and appearance of text helps as well.”

Εθνική Βιβλιοθήκη

Εθνική Βιβλιοθήκη | University of Nicosia Library | Scoop.it

Η Ζακλίν Σανσόν είναι η διευθύντρια της Εθνικής Βιβλιοθήκης της Γαλλίας [...] είναι η γυναίκα που είχε αναλάβει το τιτάνιο έργο της μεταφοράς της Βιβλιοθήκης από την ιστορική έδρα της στο κέντρο του Παρισιού στους μετεωρικούς πύργους της «αφιλόξενης» περιοχής του Τολμπιάκ [...] που είχε προκαλέσει ποταμούς αντιδράσεων, διαμαρτυριών...

University of Nicosia Library's insight:

Μέχρι τη μεταφορά της, η Εθνική Βιβλιοθήκη της Γαλλίας ήταν ανοικτή μόνο στους ερευνητές και σε μια ελίτ. Τώρα, ενώ διατηρεί την ενότητα των συλλογών της, υποδέχεται ταυτόχρονα, αλλά σε διαφορετικούς χώρους, και τους ερευνητές και το γενικό κοινό.

 

«Αλλάξαμε κλίμακα και μαζί και νοοτροπία» λέει η Σανσόν. Εμπιστεύεται τις νέες τεχνολογίες και την ψηφιοποίηση, μολονότι από τα 35 εκατομμύρια «κομμάτια» των αρχείων της έχουν ψηφιοποιηθεί μόνο 3. «Πρέπει να αντιμετωπίσουμε το θεμελιώδες ερώτημα: ποια είναι η θέση της βιβλιοθήκης σε έναν κόσμο που ευνοεί την εξ αποστάσεως πρόσβαση;» λέει.
