the future of libraries in the digital age
Well, we WANT to be a media rich library. Right now, we're a fancy storage closet and I'm the very cruel new cleaning tornado.
Upon arrival last month, I quickly learned that
So, I'm here to clean out the collection and create a digital-friendly workspace with a half dozen workstations.
Please, if anyone has ideas or a link to ideas on specs for library work stations in 2012--no storage (other than flashdrives or cloud), share!
As a fellow tornado, I'm taking it easy. It's my first year here and I don't want to step on any toes. I literally had a teacher ask for a certain filmstrip reel and projector this afternoon. Slowly and carefully I explained that I can find the clip and show it in his classroom if he would just send the title or subject/content area of the film.
We've got two centered workstations in the library, groups of six. Make sure there's enough room for any textbooks/notebook needed, and portable keyboards help, too.
One step at a time.
