    What's more, we're *drowning* in information. Pre-Internet librarianship was like pre-Internet newspaper publishing: "select, then publish." That is, all the unfiltered items are presented to a gatekeeper, who selects the best of them, and puts them in front of the rest of the world. Now we live in a "publish, then select" world: everyone can reach everything, all the time, and the job of experts is to collect and annotate that material, to help others navigate its worth and truthfulness.
    That is to say that society has never needed its librarians, and its libraries, more. The major life-skill of the information age is information literacy, and no one's better at that than librarians. It's what they train for. It's what they live for.

Is the Library Really Dead? - Timeline.com - 24 views

  •  
    Libraries are in rough shape these days. Long treasured as bastions of knowledge, they're being assailed on two fronts: funding cuts and technological disruption. Why borrow a book when you've got the Internet and a Kindle?But rumors of the library's demise are greatly exaggerated.

    "Canva is a nice tool for designing infographics, collages, flyers, and slides in your web browser or on your iPad. I've been a fan of the service since it launched. In fact, I like it so much that I became an unpaid advisor to them when they started thinking about developing resources specifically for teachers." ~ Richard Byrne
