Librarianship. Libraries of the Future. The Libraries of the Future project was established to help those running academic libraries to plan for the future. The project produced three scenarios which represent possible futures for higher education in the UK: the Wild West the Beehive, and the Walled Garden. These are not meant as predictions but as tools for academic libraries to use to review and hone their organisational strategies. They provide an opportunity to consider how libraries can adapt to the major social, economic and technological changes in the environment for higher education which will be taking place in coming decades. The project produced a series of resources available to all academic libraries, including a guide to the scenarios themselves and information on how to use them. The project sponsors have also commissioned a series of case studies which will be published in Spring 2012. Canton Public Library. Jellybooks - Discovering, sampling and sharing books.

The 20 Most Beautiful Bookstores in the World

This post, at #1, was originally published January 31.] With Amazon slowly taking over the publishing world and bookstores closing left and right, things can sometimes seem a little grim for the brick and mortar booksellers of the world. After all, why would anyone leave the comfort of their couch to buy a book when with just a click of a button, they could have it delivered to their door? Well, here’s why: bookstores so beautiful they’re worth getting out of the house (or the country) to visit whether you need a new hardcover or not. We can’t overestimate the importance of bookstores — they’re community centers, places to browse and discover, and monuments to literature all at once — so we’ve put together a list of the most beautiful bookstores in the world, from Belgium to Japan to Slovakia.

Awesome Library. Bibliothèque en ligne. 5.1.12: London bookshops do not disappoint. By Delia von Neuschatz Chain stores, Amazon and eBooks haven’t managed to kill off the independent bookshops ... not in London anyway.

5.1.12: London bookshops do not disappoint

Though inevitably, there have been some closings, a good number of small (and not so small) independently-owned bookshops continue to delight bibliophiles from all over the world. These havens from the “madding crowd” are staffed by attentive men and women who are passionate about books and have actually read the volumes they recommend. Whether browsing for yourself or looking for a unique gift (and not just of the literary kind – think perfume, original artwork and customized maps, among other things), the bookshops I’ve come across in London will not disappoint. Below are my favorite ones – a dozen in all. Biblioteca Nacional de España. LIBRERÍAS. Catalog your books online.

Enlace de bibliotecas digitales. Ouverture prochainement de : 1er portail des libraires indépendants de France. BIBLIOTHEQUES. About. Calibre started life on 31 October, 2006, soon after the release of the SONY PRS-500, the first e-ink based reader to be sold commercially in the US.


At the time, I was a graduate student, with a lot of time on my hands. The PRS-500 did not work at all with Linux, my operating system of choice, so I decided to reverse engineer the USB protocol that it used, to get it working on Linux. This was accomplished with the help of the fine folks over at and calibre was born, albeit named libprs500. At the time there were no satisfactory tools to convert content into the LRF format, used by the SONY reader, so I decided to implement a converter to convert the most popular e-book formats to LRF.
