Okay, just came across the term this morning -- Immersive Internet which is a collection of emerging technologies combined with a social culture that has roots in gaming and virtual worlds.
This has been an email thread that I thought I would share...unusual items that libraries throughout the US are checking out to their patrons:
Auto repair tools (Wyoming library)
Bones (medical school library)
Crafter glasses for people who work on watches and small crafts Drum pads Electronic devise that enlarges text on TV
I read a blog called "Designing Better Libraries" and one of their recent posts was very interesting about what atmosphere or state of mind is presented to our customers when they visit our libraries. http://dbl.lishost.org/blog/2009/06/11/who-is-in-charge-of-the-atmosphere/
Yeah! To date 37 Idaho public libraries have expressed interest in participating in the year-long subscription to Career Information Systems via the Department of Labor. Still looking for the other 67 public libraries!
Is your library interested ? Still time to consider .. contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org today!
New sections of code on executive sessions are underlined:
The American Library Association (ALA) is working with the White House, in partnership with the Corporation for National & Community Service, to get libraries involved in a national volunteer initiative that will run from June 22 to September 11, 2009.
I stopped by Nampa Public Library on Saturday, and I heard all about how many visitors they've been getting, how many more than usual (last week they had two days with over 1,800 people!) and saw this amazing zine! The zine is a little comic strip about the library and is interspersed with facts about things. I love it! It's awesome!
Here's what the new section of code will say for agenda notification:
67-2343 (4) An agenda shall be required for each meeting. The agenda shall be posted in the same manner as the notice of the meeting. An agenda may be amended, provided that a good faith effort is made to include, in the original agenda notice, all items known to be probable items of discussion.
