Informe de la IFLA: ¿Surcando las olas o atrapados en la marea?:Navegando el ... - 0 views

    El gran volumen de información y la velocidad con la que se genera en línea son sus puntos de partida. Se trata de un informe dinámico y en evolución, abierto al futuro, que invita a los profesionales a participar en los debates de su foro online y recoger cuestiones claves para próximas reuniones. En él se han identificado cinco tendencias clave que cambiarán el entorno de la información: las nuevas tecnologías expandirán, y a su vez, limitarán el acceso a la información; la educación en línea democratizará y modificará el aprendizaje global; los límites de la privacidad y la protección de datos se redefinirán; las sociedades hiperconectadas se harán más visibles y, por último, la economía global de la información se transformará.

    The guidelines provides a conceptual template to guide the creation of information literacy (IL) programs in academic and school libraries as well as public libraries. It is meant for the educators, librarians and information facilitators at the international level to help them to frame the IL efforts. In fact it is also of value to anyone who may need to start an IL program and would like a general conceptual framework. The document is divided into ten chapters that comprise the organizational spectrum of information literacy work, including a definition of concepts, a proposal for information literacy standards, a section on obtaining institutional commitment, the management of the learning process, including personnel development, educational theories, among other basic topics on how to implement the program, plus a list of key IL terms with their definitions, and a bibliography for further reading.
    Thank you very much for sharing this document that even if not updated is still valid in its fundamental ideas and framework

Technology for multi-institution co-operation: aggregating, sharing and collaboration |... - 3 views

    Libraries are under threat from large commercial aggregators who provide services which are in many cases challenging the role of libraries. Information technology is also, however, an enabler for valuable collaboration between libraries to provide their own information-rich resources. Libraries can also collaborate in providing services, software and communities. Software communities supporting libraries (including open source) Technology projects for libraries featuring multi-institution collaboration The role of the library in increasing service reach through institutional collaboration (eg multi-institution MOOCS) Use of aggregation with distributed services to form rich data services

    Robert Darnton about the centrality of public libraries (in the distant 2008): Meanwhile, I say: shore up the library. Stock it with printed matter. Reinforce its reading rooms. But don't think of it as a warehouse or a museum. While dispensing books, most research libraries operate as nerve centers for transmitting electronic impulses. They acquire data sets, maintain digital repositories, provide access to e-journals, and orchestrate information systems that reach deep into laboratories as well as studies. Many of them are sharing their intellectual wealth with the rest of the world by permitting Google to digitize their printed collections. Therefore, I also say: long live Google, but don't count on it living long enough to replace that venerable building with the Corinthian columns. As a citadel of learning and as a platform for adventure on the Internet, the research library still deserves to stand at the center of the campus, preserving the past and accumulating energy for the future.

    Thank you very much Kevin for this report. For me has been very ilustrative; my last experience with internet connection, collaboration and public libraries in Spain was that the person in charge of the lecture hall told me I was not allowed to plug the mobile phone charger in (as I was running out of battery with my smart phone), but that I could use the library desk computers (only for 30 minutes per day for free...) I was really disgusted and for me it is great to hear that in other countries these initiatives are taking place. Thanks!
    Thanks Kevin for sharing this.
    El lado oscuro de las bibliotecas: "¿Quieren leer? Pues a pagar" Es un delirio: cuando tomemos prestado un libro de una biblioteca será preciso pagar un canon

The unknowing of public knowledge - 4 views

    "Even with abundant information and the removal of censorship, truth may not prevail. This the edited text of a plenary address to the IFLA World Library and Information Congress in Singapore, 20 August 2013. Journalists and librarians share a faith in the power of public knowledge, but the media are failing in their duty"
    I took this sentence from the article that I think is crucial: Public media must provide more than just "naked facts"; they must provide the resources for people to make judgments effectively.
