The hyperlinked school library: engage, explore, celebrate

Dr Michael Stephens delivered the Dr Laurel Anne Clyde Memorial Keynote Address at the ASLA XXI Biennial Conference, held in Perth, Western Australia, from 29 September to 2 October 2009. Reprinted with permission from the Australian School Library Association Inc. (ASLA) Access 2010 24(1): 5. The evolving Web is an open and social place. The Web has changed everything. Its impact on every facet of our lives — home, work and school — would be difficult to measure but the ‘always on, always available’ Internet is certainly a game changer. Can you recall the first time you realised that the […]

The Hyperlinked Library Adapted for Anangu People

A few days after I delivered my keynote at the Australian School Library Association, I received a wonderful email from Lyn Walsh. She asked permission to adapt the presentation for her work with the Amata Anangu School. Because my talks are all CC licensed I told her to go right ahead – with the stipulation she help me out with a blog post as well. It’s a good reminder to me – and maybe others – that while we can talk all day about shiny new tools there are some schools and students who are in very different circumstances. I’m […]

Adding Links to the Hyperlinked Library

Just some things of note: Library of Congress embraces YouTube, iTunes: “Our broad strategy is to ‘fish where the fish are,’ and to use the sites that give our content added value — in the case of iTunes, ubiquity, portability, etc.,” Raymond said in an e-mail. Pupils to Study Twitter and Blogs: Children to leave primary school familiar with blogging, podcasts, Wikipedia and Twitter as sources of information and forms of communication. They must gain “fluency” in handwriting and keyboard skills, and learn how to use a spellchecker alongside how to spell. When every student has a laptop, why run […]

On the Learning/Information Commons

I’ve become fascinated with the idea and implementation of the Commons in academic libraries of late. It’s very much part of what I call The Hyperlinked Library. These past few months, I’ve wrote about the commons at ALA TechSource blog. Please take a look if you are interested.

McHenry County Librarians

Great Crowd, originally uploaded by mstephens7. A big Thank You to the folks in McHenry County, Illinois. Thursday night I spoke to the directors and trustees and Friday morning we had a great group at the Woodstock Opera House for “The Hyperlinked Library.” I met librarians from Woodstock, Cary, Crystal Lake and other nearby communities.

Thanks Cliff!

I think honoring the creativity and critical thinking of my colleagues and peers is very important. That’s one of the reasons I licensed The Hyperlinked Library completely under CC – I went out of my way to include every URL I could find and use only Flickr shots of my own or those noted as CC. I wanted to recognize all the folks that have inspired me as well as pass the work forward.  I was tickled to see this actually happen when Cindi trainor acknowledged the use of bits of THL in her own work. 🙂 So when i saw […]
