Yesterday one of my favourite bloggers/tweeters/curators Maria Popova announced a new initiative called The Curator’s Code as a method to standardise the way in which we attribute discoveries made when we re-distribute via the usual channels of twitter and blogs.

Trying to understand The Curator's Code's approach to attributing discovery - Journal - Daniel Howells

The code proposes the use of two shorthand codes: ᔥ – indicates a via: a direct link of discovery ↬ – indicates a hat-tip: an indirect link of discovery There are a few things I’d like to discuss first before trying to ascertain whether this is a good idea. Missing attribution versus missing attribution Missing attributions–especially from a deluge of a thousand Tumblr accounts–really frustrates me. This mis-attribution angers me. The other type of missing attribution is where party A has found and shared a link, which party B subsequently shares. I hope the person who found the link via someone else via an infinite number of other people doesn’t mind, but I have absolutely no idea.

What is a curator, anyway? Let’s talk about process. Educators as content curators. Just this weekend I’ve finished writing a lead article for my SLANZA friends in NZ for their Collected Magazine.

Educators as content curators

School librarians everywhere are interested in the same things, so I was pleasee to be able to contribute to an issue focused on Content Curation. This is such a topical area of relevance to teachers and school librarians alike. What is critical for us, however, is that we cast our ‘information literacy’ lens over the whole activity of ‘curation’. There is a great deal of rich content available for students and teachers that is collaboratively built and shared, including blogs, wikis, images, videos, places, events, music, books and more. Searching for content requires wise information literacy strategies and tools (embedded in the curriculum learning processes) to avoid being lost in the information labyrinth. Right on time to match the thinking time were two very different but interesting items which arrived in my Facebook and RSS feeds.
