Something you may often hear is a statement to the effect of ‘nature is beautiful’. Most of us probably wouldn’t argue with this. When we think of nature we often think of gorgeous landscapes, interesting animals, and sunsets. Nature and science are so easily linked, but I doubt most of us would think of science as also being beautiful in the same way we think of nature’s beauty.

Nothing hidden about these "tips & tricks" - just standard every day library functions. This is not new, most these functions have been used since Win95, the days before we see the net as we do now. Nonetheless, whatever it takes for people to finally catch up and educate themselves about easier searching techniques!

From 2000 through 2004, she oversaw two renovation and expansion projects, which increased building capacity from 66,000 to 107,000 square feet, much of which is devoted to children and teens. An advocate for improving the quality of life for families, she firmly believes in the ability of public libraries to be family and community centered institutions. Under her leadership, what began as a local library program for babies, toddlers and parents has become a national model – the Family Place Libraries™ initiative, now in over 250 libraries in 24 states. In addition to co-authoring eight books focused on library service to youth and families, Sandra Feinberg is a library school instructor, frequent presenter and consultant. Ms. Feinberg received her MLS from the University of Michigan and a MPS from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. She lives in Stony Brook with her husband and has two grown children living in the Southwest.James R. Keller, AIA has over 25 years of experience as an architect and has been with VITETTA Architects and Engineers in Philadelphia since 1986. He is a Principal with VITETTA and Director of Library Planning and Design for the firm, where he has designed over 100 library spaces for children including youth spaces for the Broward County Public Library, FL; the Enoch Pratt Free Library, MD; the Horsham Township Library, PA; the Lexington Public Library, KY; the Lower Merion Township Library System, PA; the Marion County Library System, FL; the Free Library of Philadelphia, PA; and the San Antonio Public Library, TX. He served as Library Design Consultant for the Santiago Public Library (Chile) and is the Principal Architect for the new Children’s Public Library in Muscat, Oman. Mr. Keller has served as a guest juror for architectural studios at Philadelphia University and Yale University. He is a frequent presenter for national and international organizations including PLA, AIA, IFLA and ALA. Mr. Keller received his BA, BS and MA degrees from Ball State University and lives in Philadelphia. Reviews"This is an excellent resource for a public library director working with architects and contractors when designing new facilities or remodeling current ones. The knowledge base of the authors—a librarian with more than thirty-five years of public library experience and an architect experienced in library planning and design, having designed more than one hundred library spaces for children—is very evident in the detailed descriptions and discussion of the elements crucial to designing functional and aesthetically pleasing spaces."--VOYA"There is much to be learned in the area of design for children, and this book both challenges and encourages with critical thinking and examples of creativity in constructing flexible interior environments that enable a sense of community and social interaction ... if library personnel are serious about renovations or new constructions for children’s libraries, it is certainly a valuable resource. Many of the perspectives and examples would suit library services far beyond the children’s field as well."--Australian Library Journal"Many useful checklists are included, and the authors illustrate their theories with examples from a diverse range of libraries ... This book belongs in libraries supporting current and future librarians, as well as architecture libraries. Library staff facing a renovation must read this book, which fills a niche covered only by scholarly articles and a few books on broader topics."--Reference & User Services Quarterly

Welcome to uClassify.com! We want to share classifier technology with everyone. We recognized that classifiers are mostly present at universities research departments and expensive commercial companies. We want to change that. We want everyone to have the possibility to use a top notch classifier - completely free. We find it enormously exciting to see what happens when a tool for creativity is given to the community. We hope to see all kinds of beyond-our-imagination classifiers and incredible web applications being built around the API.

Molly Raabe's insight:

Robin Good gives a very "good" explanation of the role of a content curator.  He has helped me understand one of the many roles of the 21st century librarian. I think a key word he uses is "continually" … "a content curator is someone who continually finds, groups, , organizes and shares the best and most relevant content on a specific issue…" (MasterNewMedia.org)
