Robert Darnton: The Library in the Digital Age

“Information has exploded around us and it is all accessible with the click of a mouse. What does this mean for our former citadel of knowledge: the library? Harvard University head librarian Robert Darnton sits down with Steve Paikin to discuss the continued importance of the library in the age of Google Book Search, and the creation of the Digital Public Library of America.”

Amazing—The Digital Public Library of America

It’s hard to believe it’s been two months since the announcement of the Best Websites for Teaching & Learning 2013.  As of yesterday most classrooms are filled with eager learners and teachers alike.  An excellent site to consider within the category of Curriculum Collaboration, Standards for the 21st-Century Learner, 2.1.4 Use technology and other information tools to analyze and organize information, 2.4.4 Develop directions for future investigations and 3.1.2 Participate and collaborate as members of a social and intellectual network of learners, the American Association of School Librarians committee chose the Digital Public Library of America.”
