  • If you were starting a library at a primary school from scratch how would you do it? In particular, what kind of digital tools would best organize and showcase the collection?

    But in a wider sense I want to make a library for tomorrow and am open to any tips. I have a clean slate here which I think is an amazing opportunity. I don't want to make a dusty old room. I want it to be fresh and inviting.

    Perhaps there are innovative programs building unique community spaces, or networks of professionals aggregating best practices, or blogs written by the underpaid next generation staffers who would fashion something that we might not even recognize as a library.

    KK has inspired me to make something like a Material & Kinesthetic Library - combining Wink-like Books, art class, Drama lessons, school zoo and community garden... I'm open to any wild ideas you might have.

Cool tools really work.

A cool tool can be any book, gadget, software, video, map, hardware, material, or website that is tried and true. All reviews on this site are written by readers who have actually used the tool and others like it. Items can be either old or new as long as they are wonderful. We post things we like and ignore the rest. Suggestions for tools much better than what is recommended here are always wanted.
