Jason the Librarian

Posted: February 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

Gopaul luck is not Seepaul luck. This local saying illustrates that what works for someone may not work for someone else. For me this was the point Jason the Librarian was making. In each culture people would respond differently. Not because we live in a digital era means that by simply creating social networking accounts that persons would be filtering towards their pages.

For example, in our locale many persons use social networks to connect with friends and families. Few persons if any at all would rarely think about befriending a library on any social networking site.

When borrowing ideas from other places Librarians should keep in mind that ‘one shoes does not fit all’. They should however tweak such ideas or projects to suit the nature of the people who they serve. It may appear that persons would eagerly accept the integration of  technology in libraries but it never hurts to try.

  1. Well done, Jason. While one may not ‘befriend’ a library, what other things can our local libraries do to remain relevant to the ‘digital generation?’

      Our local libraries would do well in implementing something that would attract not only their users but the general public. Coming to understand what gets persons attention and what is relevant to both a persons need and age would assist the library in being wanted by this ‘digital generation’. Many persons view the library as a place just to study or borrow books, in others words the library is a boring place that no one wants to spend their time in. So, Librarians now have to create something that would change the way in which others view libraries.
