the future of libraries in the digital age
My recent LIS Diploma course exposed me to the concept of mind mapping. My younger colleagues had experienced the concept in high school. I prefer to write lists of ideas and didn't find mind mapping a constructive thought process. To go through the motions, I used Word Art for the exercise. [copy enclosed]
Mind mapping was popularised and commercialised by Tony Buzan who cites on his website that the term 'mind map' is a trademark. As a commercial venture, it is far from the ideals that I hold of librarianship for freely sharing knowledge and resources.
