Library as Center for Innovation and Secure In A Post-Snowden World #ALAAC15



If I had all the time in the world I would be in several places at the same time. And I probability would have a thicker red line in my personal program for ALA. But I is based on how libraries can use technology to benefit citizens.
If I had a time turner like Hermione, I could be in more than one place at a time at ALA Annual.<br />
Getting expert advice on the exhibit hall floor: has great ideas; candy; great jokes; tech guru; a cool new tool.<br />
Witnessing history at the awards celebrations: your favorite authors & illustrators; next up, an inspiring and tear-jerking speech; hooray.<br />
Hearing all sorts of talks given by rock stars: Edwidge Danticat, Nick Offerman, Gloria Steinem.<br />
Attending tons of mind-blowing programs: an incredible idea exchange is occurring! Gamification, diversity, programming, outreach, privacy, cataloging, advocacy.<br />
Instead, I’ll just have to register and make my choices when I get there. See you in June in San Francisco!<br />
Lisa Nowlain.

I will when the conference is over write a comprehensive article on I found the thin red line in my program.

I'll try to get around;

Public Library as Center for Innovation

In an age of information abundance, libraries can re-define themselves as anything from community living room to hands on lab to business center, and everything in between. Why not a Center for Innovation? Library users need spaces that support learning in digital literacy, visual literacy, cultural literacy, and spark innovation on every level. Hear from library designers and library leaders as they discuss innovative programs being tested and the buildings and spaces that support them.

Speaker: Trent Miller

If we make it, will they come? Could introducing creative spaces add value to your community?

Libraries have always provided knowledge to their patrons and many now offer Arduino, laser cutters & ShopBots, to engage curious minds and incubate local innovation. Where did funding come from? Did the space provide value? Pilot or Sustainable? Confirmed panelists include Library and independent Hacker/Maker space founders and directors to discuss the methodology of creation, their different funding structures, and share examples of how they provide value to their community through the services they provide.

Real World Prototyping: Designing Technology Spaces through Experimentation

This panel of academic and public librarians from across North America will share experience with live prototypes to test and refine the design of experimental visualization labs, media production rooms, and Makerspaces. Prototyping and iterative design are concepts common to developers, but can be equally valuable to test novel technologies and services. The focus will be on lessons learned from successes and failures.

Digital Privacy and Security: Keeping You And Your Library Safe and Secure In A Post-Snowden World

Join Blake Carver from LYRASIS and Alison Macrina from the Library Freedom Project to learn strategies for security from digital surveillance. We'll teach tools that keep data safe inside the library and out -- securing your network, website, and PCs, and tools you can teach to patrons in computer classes. We’ll tackle security myths, passwords, tracking, malware, and more, covering a range of tools from basic to advanced, making this session ideal for any library staff.

Don't Freak Out: Fracking the Customer Data Goldmine

Borrower privacy is a “third rail” for most librarians. Is it time for a change? Customers have come to expect highly-personalized service based on past use; they get recommendations now for everything from shoes to music. Is it time for libraries to leverage their “big data” to provide personalized service? How can we do this without compromising our principles? In this panel discussion, we will recap privacy concerns; outline opportunities for customizing service; and share concrete examples from libraries that have repurposed borrower data to provide value-added services.

Top Technology Trends

This program features our ongoing roundtable discussion about trends and advances in library technology by a panel of LITA technology experts. The panelists will describe changes and advances in technology that they see having an impact on the library world, and suggest what libraries might do to take advantage of these trends.

And thank God the library is about much more than technology, it is about the people ......so I will end my participation in the conference with

Hør, hvorfor børn, der vokser op med bøger, klarer sig bedre senere i livet

Kulturmagasinet  KRÆS - RADIO4   (kl. 14.00-15.00) skal i dag handle om hvorfor det er vigtigt at børn læser.  Ikke kun fordi det er fedt at læse gode historier, men fordi n y forskning bekræfter, at tilgængelige bøger i hjemmet hjælper børn til at læse mere, blive bedre læsere og bedre uddannet senere i livet. Og har børnene ikke adgang til bøger i hjemmet er det vigtigt at de får adgang via andre institutioner som biblioteker. Det budskab udfolder sig i en samtale mellem Ea Hoppe Blaabæk, post. doc KU, Michel Steen-Hansen direktør i Danmarks Biblioteksforening og værten "kulturjunkien" Maja Hald.   Hør det her  Det hele tager sit afsæt i Ea Hoppe Blaabæk ph.d.-afhandling om, hvordan forældre giver kulturel, social arv videre til deres børn. Den er også blevet fyldigt omtalt i Kristeligt Dagblad  I   Kristeligt Dagblad   artikel skriver det også at afhandlingen punkterer en, for avisen og tilsyneladende også forskeren, udbredt myte om bibliotekerne som kulturelle fyrtårne

Når folkeskoler og folkebiblioteker bruger hinanden

I sidste uge efterlyste jeg gode eksempler på samarbejder mellem Folkebiblioteker og Folkeskoler og det er strømmet ind. Tak for det.  Det er også startskuddet på  Danmarks Biblioteksforening temaside om Folkebibliotekerne og den nye folkeskolereform, som du kan se og bidrage til på db.dk/folkeskole Jeg har lavet et kort oplæg til det "Dialogmøder om den åbne skole" som undervisningsministeret afholder i dag og alle de eksempler jeg kommer med vil indgå i DB's tema. Til præsentationen har jeg også fået hjælp af Signe Jarvad Chef Københavns Biblioteker - Kultur Valby, som har arbejdet systematisk med de københavnske bibliotekers læringsindsat i forhold til folkeskolen.  Vores fokus vil være understøtteden undervisning  som det udtrykkes i den nye folkeskolereform. På længere sigt vil DB lavet et inspirationskatalog til alle landets biblioteker, skoler og kommuner om hvordan vi kan udnytte de forskellige kompetencer vi besidder til gavn for eleverne og vide

Regeringen vil bruge 130 millioner på at genoplive døde bymidter i 'donut-byer' - biblioteket er en oplagt hjertestarter

Regeringen lancerer i dag en forsøgsordning, hvor 10 byer i landet skal deles om 130 millioner kroner. De skal bruges på, at bymidterne skal genopfinde sig selv og få livet tilbage, forklarer indenrigs- og boligminister, Kaare Dybvad (S). - Jeg tror det er vigtigt at kigge på, hvilke andre ting man kan gøre for at gøre det attraktivt for folk at opholde sig i midtbyerne, siger han til DR . I den sammenhæng kan kultur og specielt biblioteker spille en afgørende rolle, hvis man skal modvirke den såkaldte DONUTEFFEKT. I Donut-byer er der befolkningsvækst i forstæderne, og folk i forstæderne tager ikke længere ind til byen for at handle, fordi de handler på nettet, i storcentre eller i de større byer, hvor de har arbejde. Denne effekt ses i de små og mellemstore byer, hvor man endnu ikke har fundet en løsning på problematikken. I sådanne byer kan kultur og kreativ udnyttelse af bymidten spille en særdeles vigtig rolle Det ligger i forlængelse af regeringsudspillet fra sidste år "Tætte
