Monday Ignite Session: Should Librarians Teach Aggregation Tools Other Moscone Convention Center
130 (N)
Description :

It's a philosophical question more than a tools question. Let's assume there will be an ever-changing assemblage of possible tools to aggregate the web as we use it. I want to ask how, why, or where this might fit into the already crowded field of Things We Teach People. Especially in light of the new ACRL Information Literacy Framework: is this our job?

Library of the Future - Learning with the Long Now Foundation Program Moscone Convention Center
2009 (W)
Description :

The Long Now Foundation promotes long-term thinking by bringing together a diverse network of individuals in conversation and in pursuit of several long duration projects. Their 10,000 Year Clock (http://longnow.org/clock/), Rosetta Project language library (http://rosettaproject.org/), and Manual for Civilization (http://blog.longnow.org/category/manual-for-civilization/) encourage individuals to stretch their sense of "now" and bring long-term thinking and responsibility into the everyday decisions that are made. And their new space, The Interval, provides a venue for learning and conversation about big ideas. Join staff from The Long Now Foundation to learn more about how this organization promotes long-term thinking, how they approach these big projects, and what insights they have for the library of the future.
