"When your budget is low on dollars, you need to become creative when it comes to everything in your school library. Since we have a computer lab in our library-media center, (and lots of wall space...) I have decorated the lab with posters and infographics...There are also many posters which help students format their research paper, search for Google images, and understanding search results...."

Finding great infographics takes time. In this post Julie Greller shares 74 infographics that she says will be of interest to librarians and language arts teachers. I think that many teachers whom are in other disciplines will also find valuable resources here.

Greller provides a list of titles (for the infographics) that are hot linked. Click and off you go.

This video is an example of how mashable/remixable and shareable online technologies enable everyone to create high quality multimedia content quickly and easily using webbased/browser tech. I created this for my new book. It took me only about 30 min. using several websites, one of which I had never used before. I will be sharing this tech. trend at ALA Midwinter this Sunday for LITA's Top Tech Trends.

Design impacts both technology and Instruction - when the two are combined the impact is magnified.

John Shank's curator insight, February 20, 2014 1:54 PM

The change from an environment of information scarcity to over abundance fundamentally challenges the ability of the library to select, create, organize, and facilitate access to resources that advance intellectual discovery and information literacy/lifelong learning skills. So we need to be forward thinking and mindful of how our services evolve to solve the problems and challenges this new environment creates for our faculty, staff, and students.

Tracy Shaw's curator insight, February 20, 2014 5:53 PM

This is the direction we are headed - 

Glenda Morris's curator insight, April 8, 2014 1:07 AM

A good presentation reinforcing the point that libraries need to consider creating learner centred collections - to enhance engagement and interactivity.

MOOCs and Library Resources

For libraries, the new MOOC frontier calls not only for mitigating copyright risk and advocating for new services but also for establishing the grounds for network access. Most institutions are not equipped with the technology infrastructure to manage a MOOC, said Dames, which entails thousands of people pulling or streaming multimedia assets concurrently.

Similarly, MOOCs will require drawing up a new licensing model that gives a huge national and overseas market access to library resources. Typically, libraries give walk-in patrons access to resources but restrict remote resource access to users affiliated with the college or university. This model works reasonably well when there is a known population; with MOOCs, this option is not viable.

One model that might work is an opt-in model for both patrons and vendors. Some MOOC students might take courses without ever using library electronic resources, but students who would like access to those resources could opt for a premium service at an additional charge. With this model, there would be a combination of fixed costs to opt in to the service, plus a per item charge (article or chapter). Operationally, signing up for library service could be part of the course registration process, with the MOOCs provider passing ID information to the library. On the library side, patrons taking MOOC courses exclusively would be segmented from the main patron file. Setting up an authentication schema (such as EZ Proxy) would distinguish MOOC patrons logging in remotely from traditional students and faculty. In addition, having an Internet Protocol (IP) range set aside for the MOOC student would also allow institutions to restrict the amount or speed of downloads.

Segmenting the MOOC students would also let librarians monitor MOOC usage separately from the main university usage and would help ensure that pirates aren't downloading the entire database. Vendors — including database companies, publishers, and aggregators — will be particularly concerned to ensure that access to their licensed database is really controlled and that the marginal revenue from additional users is worth the risk. Using a distinct authentication scheme for the MOOC students will also let institutions put in place more effective security features. For example, additional measures might include a system that prevents access from two or more geographically disparate areas more or less simultaneously. Restricting access to a specific device would be another possibility.

For vendors willing to experiment with access to the library as an opt-in service, only those MOOC students who agreed to pay the premium would have access to vendor-provided resources. With revenue coming in commensurate with usage for this category of students, vendors might come to view this as an additional revenue stream that's worth the extra risk.

Things that caught my attention:

1. “Hashtags are now part of the system for Facebook, Tumblr, Instagram, and Twitter." I didn't realize Facebook has hashtags.

2. Encourage event attendees to use hashtags and “Afterward, you can create something using Storify to pull together all of the comments [and photos] about your event into one story."

3. "...last August, the Getty Museum released 4,600 images as open content, and that there have been similar releases from the Walters Art Museum, the British Library, and other cultural heritage agencies. Along with the images, associated metadata has been released as open content...". I know about this and I love what these institutions are doing.

4. "...open textbooks aren’t just offering students a way to save money. The digital format enables faculty to present content in new ways, by embedding video, podcast, apps, or interactive content such as quizzes."

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian

The Future of Librarianship: A Blended Perspective Apr. 10 Webinar | Blended Librarian | Library & Information Science | Scoop.it

Thursday, April 10, 2014 from 3:00-4:00pm Eastern 


The library profession is in the midst of a paradigm shift, thanks to technology and its impact on literacy and learning. With it have come new leadership roles for librarians, roles that require knowledge and skills not traditionally taught in library school programs. Blended librarianship is one way to embrace these new roles. Join Amanda Hovious as she discusses her journey toward becoming blended, and her perspective on what librarianship will look like in the (not too distant) future.
