The atlas of new librarianship by R. David Lankes ( Book )
12 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although libraries have existed for millennia, today the library field is searching for solid footing in an increasingly fragmented (and increasingly digital) information environment. What is librarianship when it is unmoored from cataloging, books, buildings, and committees? This is a guide for practitioners where a new librarianship is described. This new librarianship is based not on books and artifacts but on knowledge and learning. The author suggests a new mission for librarians: To improve society through facilitating knowledge creation in their communities. The vision for a new librarianship must go beyond finding library-related uses for information technology and the Internet; it must provide a durable foundation for the field. Lankes recasts librarianship and library practice using the fundamental concept that knowledge is created through conversation. New librarians approach their work as facilitators of conversation; they seek to enrich, capture, store, and disseminate the conversations of their communities. To help librarians navigate this new terrain, Lankes offers a map, a visual representation of the field that can guide explorations of it; more than 140 Agreements, statements about librarianship that range from relevant theories to examples of practice; and Threads, arrangements of Agreements to explain key ideas, covering such topics as conceptual foundations and skills, and values. Agreement Supplements at the end of the book offer expanded discussions. Although it touches on theory as well as practice, this atlas is meant to be a tool: textbook, conversation guide, platform for social networking, and call to action

Expect more : demanding better libraries for today's complex world by R. David Lankes ( Book )
7 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Libraries have existed for millennia, but today many question their necessity. In an ever more digital and connected world, do we still need places of books in our towns, colleges, or schools? If libraries aren't about books, what are they about? In Expect More, David Lankes, winner of the 2012 ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Award for the Best Book in Library Literature, walks you through what to expect out of your library. Lankes argues that, to thrive, communities need libraries that go beyond bricks and mortar, and beyond books and literature. We need to expect more out of our libraries. They should be places of learning and advocates for our communities in terms of privacy, intellectual property, and economic development. Expect More is a rallying call to communities to raise the bar, and their expectations, for great libraries."--Author's website
New concepts in digital reference by R. David Lankes ( )
11 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Let us start with a simple scenario: a man asks a woman 'how high is Mount Everest?' The woman replies '29,029 feet'. Nothing could be simpler. Now let us suppose that rather than standing in a room, or sitting on a bus, the man is at his desk and the woman is 300 miles away with the conversation taking place using e-mail. Still simple? Certainly - it happens every day. So why all the bother about digital (virtual, electronic, chat, etc.) reference? If the man is a pilot flying over Mount Everest, the answer matters. If you are a lawyer going to court, the identity of the woman is very importa

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Libraries have existed for millennia, but today the library field is searching for solid footing in an increasingly fragmented (and increasingly digital) information environment. What is librarianship when it is unmoored from cataloging, books, buildings, and committees? The vision for a new librarianship must go beyond finding library-related uses for information technology and the Internet; it must provide a durable foundation for the field. R. David Lankes recasts librarianship and library practice using the fundamental concept that knowledge is created though conversation. New librarians approach their work as facilitators of conversation; they seek to enrich, capture, store, and disseminate the conversations of their communities. These videos provide a foundation for practicing librarians and library science students in new librarianship. It builds off The Atlas of New Librarianship, the 2012 ABC CLIO/Greenwood Award for the Best Book in Library Literature and seeks to generate discussion about the future direction of the profession

L'atlante della biblioteconomia moderna by David R Lankes ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in Italian and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Questo libro di David Lankes, uscito in edizione inglese nel 2011, è considerato un testo di riferimento della biblioteconomia internazionale. Ora, grazie alla preziosa traduzione in lingua italiana, anche il pubblico del nostro paese ha modo di potersi avvicinare a quest'opera. Ecco i punti essenziali del pensiero di Lankes. Le biblioteche esistono da millenni, ma oggi la biblioteconomia è alla ricerca di solide basi teoriche in un contesto informativo sempre più frammentato (e sempre più digitale). Che cosa è la biblioteconomia quando non comunica con la catalogazione, la collezione, le biblioteche come edifici? La visione di una moderna biblioteconomia deve andare oltre l'applicazione delle tecnologie dell'informazione e di Internet e deve fornire una base duratura per la disciplina. Il libro di Lankes è una riflessione sulla biblioteconomia e la biblioteca, guidata dal principio che la conoscenza viene creata attraverso la conversazione. I bibliotecari possono avvicinarsi al loro lavoro con un nuovo approccio, come facilitatori e mediatori delle conversazioni dei membri delle comunità di riferimento, comunicazioni che devono cercare di arricchire, acquisire, memorizzare e diffondere fra comunità diverse ma potenzialmente affini. Toccando sia la teoria che la pratica, l'Atlante proposto in questa accurata traduzione dall'inglese è uno strumento che può essere utilizzato come libro di testo, manuale di conversazione e invito all'azione
