‘Dicks For Breakfast’ and other library barcode placement fails | Dangerous Minds

‘Dicks For Breakfast’ and other library barcode placement fails | Dangerous Minds | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it


 
PC Sweeney at the online librarian and library culture magazine, Makingithappen.us, recently collected a slew of photos of books with unfortunate barcode placements.

Sweeney writes:

Everyone knows that we must rigidly adhere to the agreed upon institutional standards of barcode placement. However, sometimes that means that things can go terribly wrong. So terribly, horrifically and hysterically wrong.


Personally, I’m not sure how accidental some of these are. There must be a certain degree of tedium that sets in at the library when processing thousands of books, and what better way to amuse oneself on the job than...

The New Librarian: How to lead a tech-integration revolution

The New Librarian: How to lead a tech-integration revolution | Libraries and eLearning | Scoop.it

Throughout my career, I’ve had the good fortune to work in various capacities as a librarian and with all levels of learners, from kindergarten through doctoral students. Presently, I’m a school librarian at North High School in Downers Grove, Ill., where I have the good fortune to be one of three full-time librarians in a school that serves 2,200 students. Additionally, I teach an online course called “Introduction to Libraries and the Information Age” at the College of DuPage in Glen Ellyn, Ill.
