Most people say there’s just too much information flow, but as a news junkie, I can’t ever seem to get enough. So, I get drawn to these sites as well. A few of my favorites….
The recycled truth:
This is my second site. And I loved it! It had information on everything. Science, history, notes on everything. It was educational, and it was pretty cool to go for something like this.
The biggest tell is there were many sites with information and links to other sites. There was even links to other countries and other times in history and whatnot.
I just thought it was interesting that they started with a definition of free-for-all.
From the outside in:
This is where it was a pleasure to go in the museum and explore the building and grounds of the World’s biggest attraction: New York. ilo Subject: Challenges in the Classroom, Dr. Kumaran, Director of the Museum of Modern ArtIn 1950, Milton Glaser, a celebrated designer proposed to elevate the design of the public library in New York City to pre- World War I standards. Kumaran took up the challenge and under the guidance of his architect Prentice secured the funds to expand the library to include the Contemporary Arts Collection.
The Library now contains not only a collection of over 250,000 volumes but also a unique collection of over 40,000 Children’s volumes.
Surprisingly, the biggest seller of books in the library is not children’s books but rather CD’s and DVDs. Many a time, traditional publishers have focused on the sale of a book to get sales. However, these days, with the internet explosion, people are buying titles online. This format is more convenient especially for people that travel or read books when they are on the go.
In July 2005, Freedom Online received a Grant of inspiration from the William Glasser Foundation for the development and education of a Digital Public Library.
Well, it seems the library’s mission is adaptation to the public library system. Who knows what the future holds? With the new functions of the internet and mobile apps, how many books will be obsolete within the next decade?
Libraries are a great place for people to not only improve their knowledge and gain new information, but also to socialize with others. In the end, a library should be for everybody, whoever you are and whatever you are learning from the library.
The mission of the Librarian, a librarian as I always call myself is to enhance the culture and everybody’s culture through the provision of resources which are useful, relevant and accurate and which will contribute to the achievement of his purposes.
I learnt that issues relating to women’s rights, urban planning, human rights, health, food security, urban planning and development, social statuses, infrastructure, urban planning and development, lifestyle, etc., etc. are involved in library and information services.
Previously, I was a classical liberal and was very much involved in intellectual life and policy debates. But now, I am a dyed-in-the-wool conservative. I conservatively assert that:
7. Revival of education.
The conservative interpretation of values has won the day. Perhaps, it’s because of the combination of the Conservativisms and the PRO-GAY Movement in one mind.
I granted a request to search my old library Anderson’s collection. I discovered a few things to compliment the library and to advertise it.
After searching through the books, I discovered that there are only political books and no “cleverest” books.
I decided to fill the gap myself and Newsletter to help promote the library.
Then Think Tanks decided to do some reading. They asked that certain materials be made available to them on a quarterly basis. Two years later, we published those materials and they brought in revenue.
Then, a few years ago, a few of us realized that if we want to promote information sources Medina Library would become a significant source of information and also a place for those folks who have diffidence with information sources then we need to be aware that groups that we are studying and that have interest in particular subjects are likely to favor a particular information source.
The goal of the Think Tank was to assist students in developing information sources and to make that knowledge more widely available to all. On the internet there are already many such clubs. By doing it on the internet, Think Tanks have helped students from various disciplines to co-create information resources, which in the long run has proven to be very successful.
