Anthony Marx: Do we still need a library?

Research libraries have long been considered the intellectual hub of a community, whether it's a university or a city. With the shift to digital content, network-based services, and globalization, research libraries have been challenged to adapt in unprecedented ways. Some even question their ongoing importance.
Drawing on his experience as the former president of Amherst College and the current president and CEO of the New York Public Library, Anthony Marx speculates on the future of research libraries. You'll be surprised by what he has to say.

"Die Bibliothek von Alexandria"

43:32:00, dt.
"Film von Bernhard Hain Die Bibliothek von Alexandria an der ägyptischen Mittelmeerküste wurde 288 vor Christus von Ptolemeus I. gegründet. Sie galt in der hellenistischen Zeit als die größte Schriftensammlung der antiken Welt und soll bis zu 700.000 Papyrus-Schriftrollen umfasst haben. Gelehrte, Intellektuelle, Wissenschaftler und Schüler aus aller Welt fanden dort die Möglichkeit, in allen Disziplinen zu forschen und über das Wissen ihrer Zeit zu diskutieren. Im Lauf der Jahrhunderte wurde das geistige Zentrum durch Kriegshandlungen und Anschläge mehrfach in Mitleidenschaft gezogen und schließlich zerstört. Das heutige Ägypten hat sich auf sein historisches Erbe besonnen: In Zusammenarbeit mit der UNESCO wurde die Bibliothek von Alexandria neu errichtet und 2002 eröffnet. Seither kommen jährlich rund 800.000 Menschen dorthin. Der Film stellt die noch junge Bibliothek von Alexandria vor."

CARL Conference: Understanding the Learner Experience

1:10:19, engl. Understanding the Learner Experience: Threshold Concepts and Curriculum Mapping, Char Booth and Brian Mathews In order to improve library instruction, we need to develop a richer understanding of the holistic learning and teaching experience of our institutions. Threshold concepts are core ideas in a particular area or discipline that, once understood, transform perceptions of that subject. Curriculum mapping is a method of visualizing insight into the courses, requirements, and progressions a learner negotiates as they pass through a particular department or degree. When understood and applied in tandem, these strategies provide a powerful means of developing actionable insight into the learner and faculty perspective, and highlight pivotal points at which to provide library instruction, resources, and research support. This presentation will explore theoretical and applied applications of of threshold concepts and curriculum mapping, as well as feature an interactive portion devoted to collaborative mapping of threshold concepts key to teaching and learning in libraries.

IFLA raises concerns about ACTA

Today at a stakeholder hearing in the European Parliament, IFLA's Director of Policy & Advocacy, Stuart Hamilton, raised severe concerns about the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement (ACTA).
"IFLA is gravely concerned by the extreme secrecy surrounding the ACTA negotiations, the potentially chilling effects of targeting intermediaries, and the continuing focus on enforcement at the expense of flexibility", he said. "We have made far less progress in creating flexibility in copyright - particularly in the digital age. ACTA compounds the problem by limiting flexibility going forward - at this point we have no ideas what technologies are going to emerge in the next decade and ACTA will lock us into an approach that is not suitable for now, let alone the future."

Siobhan Stevenson: TEDxLibrariansTO

16.30, engl.

Siobhan Stevenson (Ph.D.) is an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Information at the University of Toronto. After ten years working with an agency of the Ontario government responsible for the coordination of autonomous public library boards through the development of policies, programs and funding opportunities designed to that end, Siobhan returned to the University of Western Ontario to pursue her Ph.D. The problems that she addresses in her research revolve around issues she encountered in the field, specifically the role of class struggle in the public policy process, and the ways in which it manifests in competing visions of today's information societies. Her object of analysis is often the local public library because, among other reasons, its ubiquity combined with its seeming banality make it a compelling site for the study of the complex ways in which state institutions serve to legitimate and reproduce the status quo. Currently, she is conducting a historical study on labour relations in public libraries across Canada from the early 1950s through to today's information economy.
