Designing Libraries: Learning for a Lifetime Pat Kyle, librarian at the Washington International School (WIS) was presented with a rare opportunity. A private PreK-12 institution in northwest Washington, DC, WIS had launched a five-year redesign of the school in which she would take an active role, helping build a brand new media center. Having participated in a design workshop at my Building Learning Communities Summer Conference ( last year, Kyle understood how a properly designed space, one that thoughtfully integrated online learning, and collaboration and content creation among students, would serve the entire school community well into the future. So she invited me to meet with her, the school’s headmaster, IT director, and lead architect in what was an incredibly exciting opportunity for me to get in on building a true 21st Century school. When I looked at the existing plans, I saw a fairly traditional library, with the usual configuration of bookshelves and a central circulation desk.

Libfly (GRATUIT - TOUT PUBLIC) Guide to Web Search: The Invisible Web Learn how to find anything on the Internet with quality Web sites. Become a smarter, savvier searcher. FindingDulcinea also offers foreign language versions of this guide in Chinese, Russian and Spanish. The Invisible Web Many of the Web’s most extensive sites work like libraries. These database sites keep their information tucked away in the stacks, and if you want something, you have to ask for it. Insights for the Invisible Web A brief explanation of the invisible Web: Information in databases can only be accessed by direct searches (searches from within the site itself), which prevents search engines from finding it.White pages, electronic books, online journals, image files, newspaper archives, dictionary definitions and patents are examples of the file types found in databases. One trick for finding databases with standard search engines is as simple as adding the term “database” to your search query. Online databases occasionally require users to pay for access to their content.

Reimagining Learning Spaces Babelio (GRATUIT- TOUT PUBLIC) Learning Spaces Space, whether physical or virtual, can have a significant impact on learning. Learning Spaces focuses on how learner expectations influence such spaces, the principles and activities that facilitate learning, and the role of technology from the perspective of those who create learning environments: faculty, learning technologists, librarians, and administrators. Information technology has brought unique capabilities to learning spaces, whether stimulating greater interaction through the use of collaborative tools, videoconferencing with international experts, or opening virtual worlds for exploration. This e-book represents an ongoing exploration as we bring together space, technology, and pedagogy to ensure learner success. Please note: In addition to the e-book's core chapters on learning space design principles (chapters 1-13) , this site also offers case studies illustrating those principles (chapters 14-43), including links to examples of innovative learning spaces.

Academic Library Building Design: Resources for Planning Academic Library Building Design: Resources for Planning Joel Street Library, Princeton University 2012 Welcome Welcome to Academic Library Building Design: Resources for Planning. In response to frequent inquiries for information about planning academic library buildings, the Association of College and Research Libraries (ACRL) and the Library Leadership and Management Association (LLAMA) have joined forces to provide a basic framework for architects, planners, and librarians embarking on the planning and design of libraries for higher education. This Guide will provide information for thinking about the design of new and renovated library space, and point toward additional resources that can support, inform and enhance the academic library design process. We hope you find this Guide useful. Introduction College and research libraries present increasingly complex challenges based on: Initial Considerations User Studies (Updated June 2013) OCLC.

Modern library learning environments Contents Modern learning environments: an introductionModern library learning environmentsKey elements in designing modern school library spacesDesigning library spaces for learningLearning spacesChallenges in rethinking library designStakeholders: MLLEs aligned with values, vision and goalsCase studies and examplesFurther reading Modern learning environments: an introduction The concept of the ‘Modern Learning Environment’ (MLE) encompasses an holistic approach that relates the pedagogy of learning to the physical and virtual spaces in which learning occurs. The New Zealand Ministry of Education offers links to international information on MLEs and CORE-Ed offers an MLE Matrix followed by some key points about the ubiquity of learning – requiring a learner-centred approach to time, place, access and support – and the networked connectedness of people and technologies that underpin this. However, an actual definition of an MLE is not so easy to find. Modern library learning environments

Home page Library Design | Library Layout by Greg Andrzejewski “The survival of the library as a space is not dependent on smart architecture (it may help though) – it is dependent on the ability of the library to meet the needs of people and convincingly add value to their lives” (Jens Thorhauge (2004). “Building Design for the Digital Age.” Glasgow School of Art Library Reading Room How many of us remember encountering this sort of library? Much has changed as libraries have developed over the years and much remains to be done if libraries (public, academic, school, and special) are to remain useful to the public. Ambience and Atmosphere In two of her works, Creating the Customer-Driven Library: Building on the Bookstore Model (2005) and Creating the Customer-Driven Academic Library (2009), Jeannette Woodward argues that libraries need to change in order to suit the changing needs of customers and to accomodate current technologies.
