Library 101 – az esszencia

A Library 101 videó szűk 8 percben elmond mindent, méghozzá frankó libpunk stílusban, David Lee King és Michael Porter (alias Libraryman) tolmácsolásában – plusz az a kb. 500 könyvtáros az egész világról, aki küldött be ötleteket, hozzászólásokat a projekthez. Először a videó, aztán a többi:

És a szöveg:

“Library 101! (The basics have changed)
Library 101! (They are not the same)
Library 101! (Your lib can remain with)
Library 101!!

When libraries first started out, we weren’t quite the dream.
See we were useful, but private clubs played host to a scene,
Intellectuals, rich men, lawyers and deans.
But you can’t keep the good people down, that’s what 101 means.
Now for generations libraries have been at freedom’s core.
But now technology is making huge leaps and we must do more.
There’s a cry for emerging tools that help us evolve.
And without that we might die, man this must be solved!

Chorus
101 our parts make a sum that will be the key to what is to come.
101’s how we get the job done! Evolve and make your Library 101!

As technology marches on, change is a must.
It’s a basic 101 for us, we have to adjust.
Improve digital content and access, or our dreams die.
Become InfoGoogleDonalds? “No way!” We’ll tell you why!

Chorus
101 new basics have come, our role can’t succumb to evolution
101 we’re beating the drum! Librarians, learn your Library 101!

Bridge 1 (punk rock style)
LIBRARIES! YOU ARE GREAT!
NOW CHANGE, MATE! NOT TOO LATE!
NOW! NOW! NOW! DON’T HESITATE
101’s YOUR *beep* GATE
THERE’S STILL TIME TO EXTRICATE
ALL YOUR WEIGHT CAN’T CULMINATE IN FAILURE
COMMUNICATE!!!
NOW! NOW! NOW! ITS NOT TOO LATE!
101! 101! LI-BRAR-Y 101!
101! 101! LI-BRAR-Y 101!!

See your library needs to evolve, get an expanded brand.
Sure books and meeting rooms and storytimes, are still in our plans.
But social tools are here to stay, so are media streams.
And if you can’t that from your library, it should make your ears steam (for real)!

Chorus
101 new basics have come, our role can’t succumb to evolution
101 is how we get the job done, evolve and make your Library 101!

Bridge 2 (“boy band” style)
Library 101, you need to come get some.
Follow tradition but go new directions and make course corrections and make it come.
Library 101, you need to come get some.
Reference and reading and classes and research
with digital content, check chat on the net,
and though our budgets hurt, we’ve got your wireless,
internet, SMS, gaming, you can bet, on:
Library 101, now we must move along.
whoooooooo whoooooh whoo whooooo

Chorus, Chorus, Chorus, Chorus
101’s challenge can be won, we’ll get the job done while having some fun.
101! We’re beating the drum, Librarians, learn your Library 101!
101! Libraries are some of democracy’s most favorite sons.
101’s how we get the job done, ch-ch-change and make your l-l-l-library 101
101! We can’t be outdone by companies who have profits that stun.
101, and in the long run, it’s what you get done with Library 101!
101! Libraries aren’t done, but if we don’t change people will move on.
101! We’re beating the drum, Librarians, learn your Library 101!
101! We hope this was fun, we want to talk ideas as they come.
101! This song is now done, please go now and make your Library 101!
101!
101!
10, 10, 10, 10, 10, 101!!!!!!!!”

Arra alkalmas időben lesz fordítása is, ígérem.

A lényege az, hogy ha nem váltunk, elmennek melletünk az emberek, mert szép-szép a hagyomány, de a tisztelet fenttartása mellett itt az idő a cserére. Ehhez nyújt segítséget a Library 101, többek közt egy 101 elemes listával (RTK – Resources and Things to Know), amelynek segítségével szépen fel lehet építeni a jövő könyvtárát. Most ennyi, később lesz több.

Nagy riszpekt a készítőknek.

Minden vélemény számít!
