Gone are the days where library was termed as uncool and bookwormish place for study.
Beth Holland from EdTechTeacher quotes “Libraries are reinventing themselves as content becomes more accessible online and their role becomes less about housing tomes and more about connecting learners and constructing knowledge. Libraries become a different kind of learning destination when schools reimagine them as open, transparent spaces that invite student communication and collaboration.
Libraries today with improved online access are considered as great source of knowledge and information for everyone. To keep a track on what librarian community is talking about, here’s a Twitter list of Librarians to start with, check it out!
