25 Writers on the Importance of Libraries

25 Writers on the Importance of Libraries | Information Science | Scoop.it

“A library implies an act of faith which generations, still in darkness hid, sign in their night in witness of the dawn." ~ Victor Hugo

 

“Libraries will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no libraries." ~ Anne Herbert

 

It was Terry Deary, a known children's writer, who made a controversial statement about libraries: “books aren’t public property.” Deary added, “Authors, booksellers and publishers need to eat. We don’t expect to go to a food library to be fed.” The cranky comments feel like a swift kick in the teeth since libraries around the world are struggling against significant budget cuts each year, and authors have been tirelessly advocating for their importance. We gathered a few passionate statements from 20 writers that emphasize why libraries aren’t "sentimental” institutions. See what Mark Twain, Neil Gaiman, Judy Blume, Ray Bradbury, and other writers have to contribute to the issue on the importance of libraries.

Understanding crap detection is especially important in regards to searching for health care issues. While a bad link might hurt your reputation as a curator, a poorly researched link to a potential "cure" for your ailment could physically harm you should you choose to follow its advice.

Aristotle University - Library's curator insight, February 19, 2013 9:13 AM
Ευρετήρια ελληνικών περιοδικών

Η Βιβλιοθήκη ΑΠΘ στην προσπάθειά της να υποστηρίξει την έρευνα διαθέτει τις ελληνικές έντυπες συνδρομές της προς ευρετηρίαση και αναρτά τα αποτελέσματα αυτής της εργασίας ελεύθερα στο διαδίκτυο μέσω του προγράμματος Open Journals System. Η μεγάλη πλειοψηφία αυτών των εργασιών πραγματοποιείται στα πλαίσια πτυχιακών εργασιών και με τη συνδρομή του διδακτικού προσωπικού τουΤμήματος Βιβλιοθηκονομίας και Συστημάτων Πληροφόρησης του ΑΤΕΙ Θεσσαλονίκης. 


Ευρετηριάζονται μόνο τα ενυπόγραφα άρθρα και για το καθένα από αυτά παρέχονται τα παρακάτω στοιχεία: τίτλος, συγγραφέας -είς, περίληψη (ή οι πρώτες 100 λέξεις), θέματα και λέξεις-κλειδιά. Τα άρθρα είναι οργανωμένα ανά τεύχος στο οποίο έχουν εκδοθεί. Τα πλήρη κείμενα είναι διαθέσιμα MONO από την έντυπη έκδοση του περιοδικού. Μπορείτε να δείτε τα διαθέσιμα τεύχη μέσα από τον Κατάλογο της Βιβλιοθήκης.
