'SLOW LIBRARY' MOVEMENT / PROF. DIBYENDU PAUL

  1. 1. Slow Library Movement !!!! 26-09-2013 1 dp-_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  2. 2. Two Modes of Thoughts  System 1: Fast, automatic, frequent, emotional, stereotypic, subconscious  System 2: Slow, effortful, infrequent, logical, calculating, conscious26-09-2013 2 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  3. 3. Really we able to enjoy? Technological advances resulted in labour saving devices for the home too. Nobody could deny the advantages of micro wave oven, hot water systems, flush toilet, or the bread maker, but have these technologies really given us more time to enjoy life as was their claim? Or have we used this time to become even busier. 26-09-2013 3 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  4. 4. Slow Movement …is a worldwide movement to recapture Meaningful Connection this state of connectedness. The movement is gaining momentum, as more and more people recognize their discomfort at the fast pace and disconnected nature of their lives.

  5. 5. Slow Movement: History  When McDonald’s planned to build a franchise outlet in Rome in 1986, Carlo Petrini and his followers organized a demonstration in which he eat bowls of pasta as weapons of protest.  Their demonstration was successful and soon after, Carlo founded the International Slow Food Movement which runs counter to the fast food, fast life, non-sustainable food production and the eroding of local economies. 26-09-2013 5 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  6. 6. What is slow food? …aims to preserve cultural cuisine (preserve food plants & seeds, domestic animals and farming within an ecoregion). SFM has become a social and political movement capable of resisting the dehumanizing effects of large-scale, commercial food production and the fast food industry. 26-09-2013 6 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  7. 7. What is slow travel?  opportunity to become part of local life and to connect to a place and its people  ST is also about connection to culture. 26-09-2013 7 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  8. 8. What is slow cities? …a way of life that supports people to live slow. Traditions and traditional ways of doing things are valued. These cities stand up against the fast-lane, homogenized world so often seen in other cities throughout the world. Slow cities have less traffic, less noise, fewer crowds. 26-09-2013 8 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  9. 9. what is the slow book movement? Motivate readers to choose more substantive reading material—serious literature that encourages thought and that broadens self-awareness. Slow Books is neither an pessimistic reaction to technology nor a nostalgic desire for the past—meaningful works of literature exist whether in electronic or print formats. Rather, the point of slow reading is simply to challenge minds and stimulate reflection—developing readers’ ability to think critically and to form new ideas. Question then is media responsible against so-called slow… 26-09-2013 9 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  10. 10. The Medium is the Message medium affects the society in which it plays a role not by the content delivered over the medium, but by the characteristics of the medium itself.. medium affects the body and the psyche in relatively unconscious ways; thus it is more powerful than the message, which largely appeals to the conscious mind... Marshal McLuhan 26-09-2013 10 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  11. 11. Fast Food Industry and Information Industry FFI impression Food is ‘cheap’ and plentiful; eating is fueling up in as little time as possible, food should taste the same everywhere and where it comes from is unimportant. Inf. Industry! The explosion of availability and great quantity of information, and how libraries operate, suggest that information is cheap and plentiful, that searching, evaluating and using information is a race I the finish line, that origin of information is irrelevant and content and form should be should be identical everywhere 26-09-2013 11 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  12. 12. Slow Library Movement  ‘Slow’ is not used in the contrast of ‘speed’  SLM provides a framework for fostering the growth of sustainable libraries that will contribute in relevant and meaningful ways  SLM is most certainly not anti technology, digital technology, especially OSS may be the tool to facilitate different elements of SLM  There are six key elements of SLM as per Leggott : Education, community, local, craftsmanship, people and enjoyment. 26-09-2013 12 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  13. 13. Encourage users to be educated  Education should be bidirectional, with librarians, members from other professional and disciplines  Library should be open to learning from any and all areas not just LIS 26-09-2013 13 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  14. 14. Involvement with community  Foster involvement with and preservation of community as a role for library  SLM stress the important of an outlook contextualized by the particular community  Social tagging can involve the community 26-09-2013 14 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  15. 15. Advocate using local tools and talent  Instead of paying high prices for services that are inflexible and beyond the control of library use local product or open source products  Staff can build and modify to meet the unique needs of the library community  This requires commitment of staff training and time (which our admintration are disinterested mostly) 26-09-2013 15 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  16. 16. Craftsmanship with best ingredients  The right components, features, and tools are important ingredients in the creation of the best services 26-09-2013 16 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  17. 17. Pay attention to the people  Library staff are more important than the technology the create and use  OSS, Web and 2.0 are wonderful tools but cannot be compared with the abilities and passion of the people involved in the system 26-09-2013 17 dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
  18. 18. Obtain enjoyment  If we obtain pleasure from anything we value it.  As people are social increasing communication and connection between library and community will lead to pleasurable interaction 26-09-2013 18dp_2013_Slow_Library_Movement
