So we've enumerated the threats to libraries and the difficulties in finding a new formula to providing value to our communities in the absence of access to commercial content markets. So now what?

This a film that we shot and edited in a day.
It is a response to Somerset County Council's decision to close 60% of its library branches and mobile libraries in 2011, including the always busy Glastonbury library.

This is disgusting.

Building Academic Library 2.0 [Meredith Farkas]

UC Berkeley Library Systems, 2007, engl., 1.10:38. [Meredith Farkas spricht ab 13:00, vorher lauter Einführungen/-leitungen]

"Academic Library 2.0 Keynote Speaker: Meredith Farkas, Distance Learning Librarian Norwich University, Northfield A Conference sponsored by the Librarians Association of the University of California, Berkeley Division
Once a symbolic bastion of traditional accumulations of specialized knowledge, today's academic library operates in an information landscape grown increasingly variegated and difficult to traverse.

Paradoxically, at the same time, data, information, knowledge, cultural production, and scholarship are far more accessible, appropriable, and manipulable than ever before. New media attract widespread attention, more pliable technologies emerge with increasing frequency, and--most importantly--young generations of students and faculty with aptitudes, skills, and expectations borne of a world massively defined by the Internet and its progeny are populating the halls of academe.

The convergence of the once distinct technological and social meanings of the term "network" is evident in the rise of communities of remote collaborations among friends, acquaintances, students, and researchers. These developments compel academic libraries to consider how best to apply new technologies to suit users' demands and to satisfy their institutional and educational missions.

The Academic Library 2.0 conference will address the phenomenon of academic libraries taking affirmative steps to deploy technologies and services that facilitate users' virtually instant connection to diverse sources of knowledge and information, as well as to help users directly contribute form and substance to those sources."

Videos aus Bibliotheken

"Viele Bibliotheken nutzen heute die Möglichkeit, ihre Zielsetzungen und Arbeitsinhalte auch über Online-Videos zu transportieren. Unser Angebot haben wir daher um Filme aus aller Welt ergänzt, bei denen das Thema "Bibliothek" im Mittelpunkt steht. Die von uns ausgewählten Videos sollen dabei auch als Anregung für Bibliothekarinnen und Bibliothekare im deutschsprachigen Raum dienen, ihre Angebote und Services auf diese innovative Weise zu vermitteln.

Wir haben uns zunächst für folgende Themen entschieden:

* Schule und Lesen
* Lernen
* Räume
* Technologie
* Interkulturelles
* Kinderbibliothek
* Jugendbibliothek
* Marketing
* Strategie
* Einzelne Bibliotheken

Unsere Auswahl orientiert sich an den Kriterien Verständlichkeit, Qualität und Kreativität und erhebt keinen Anspruch auf Vollständigkeit. Aus technischen Gründen haben wir im ersten Schritt den Fokus auf Inhalte der Website YouTube gerichtet. Beim Anklicken werden die Clips direkt vom YouTube-Server aufgerufen und auf der ekz-Seite angezeigt. Somit handelt es sich um eine Link-Sammlung im erweiterten Sinn."
