Worldwidewebsize daily estimates the size of the internet. On the day of writing, it amounted to 4.59 billion pages and a billion websites. This is the “indexed” internet, and doesn’t include the “dark web” or private databases.

The size of the web is measured in two ways. The first is “content” – storage capacity was estimated in 2014 as 1024 bytes, or a million exabytes. The second is “traffic”, measured in zettabytes. Global traffic recently passed one zettabyte, the content of 250 billion DVDs.

More conventionally, the UK published 184,000 books in 2013 – globally, the largest number per inhabitant. Add the increasing ways of measuring a human being in terms of data – DNA sequencing, online family trees, genetic coding, bank accounts, online information of all kinds – or the amount of scientific data being produced and read around the world and the amount of information in the world is staggering. Even the amount of storage most people need for photos and documents has grown hugely in the past few years.

As a species, we are producing information at a massive rate. The “reading” of the mass of data has led to new predictive models for social interaction. Businesses and governments are scrambling to make use of this data as human beings seem ever more readable, manageable and – possibly – controllable through the comprehension and manipulation of information.

Hollandalı tarihçi ve mimari uzmanı Machiel Kiel Balkanları dolaşıp Osmanlı eserlerini tek tek fotoğraflamış (50-60’lar). Bu eserlerin bir kısmı bugün ya yok olmuş; ya da yok olmak üzere…

About this website and the project behind it In September 2011 the Netherlands Institute in Turkey (NIT) has launched a project for the digitization and publication of the photographic archive of Machiel Kiel. A former director of the NIT, Prof. Kiel is a renowned Dutch scholar intrinsically connected with the study of Ottoman architectural monuments in the Balkan countries, which he pioneered. His archive represents an invaluable source for researchers of this heritage. Created for the most part between the 1960s and 90s, it also contains visual documentation of many monuments that have not survived, or have been significantly altered in, the second half of the twentieth century. The publication of Kiel’s archive by the NIT is hoped to significantly advance international research on this heritage.

In May, 2012, the NIT made available online almost 1300 images digitized and processed within phase 1 of the project, pertaining to Ottoman-Islamic architectural monuments in the Southeast-European countries (outside Turkey). Completing phase 2 of the project in March 2013 the NIT made available online close to 500 images of Ottoman monuments located in Turkish Thrace. In November 2013 phase 1 of the project was supplemented by 500 additional images of Ottoman architectural monuments in the Balkans thus the total number of images of the reagion, made available by the NIT almost reached 1800. During phase 3 more than 2500 images of Christian monuments and mural painting from the Ottoman period will be classified and displayed. The NIT will successively make available this material to the public. For further information, please contact the curators of the project – Grigor Boykov (griboykov@yahoo.com) & Maximilian Hartmuth (kielarchive@nit-istanbul.org)

Almanya’da #kütüphaneler “sahte haber peşinde”

Students studying in university library

İnternetteki sahte haberler insanların siyasi görüşünü giderek daha fazla etkiliyor ve demokrasiye zarar veriyor. Sahte haberlerle mücadelede özellikle de kütüphaneler önemli görevler üstlenebilir.

2016 ilkbaharında Facebook’ta paylaşılan bir gönderi büyük bir hızla yayılmıştı. Küçük bir kızın fotoğrafının yer aldığı gönderide, “Kızım Marie H. (6 yaş) 27.03.2016’dan beri kayıptır, şimdiye kadarki arama çabaları sonuç vermemiştir,” yazıyor, şöyle devam ediliyordu: “Görgü tanıklarından öğrendiğime göre, kızım en son iki mülteci çocukla birlikte görülmüş.” Olayla ilgili herhangi bir bilginin doğrudan “anne Bertha Hofmann”a iletilmesi isteniyordu; Facebook’taki bu gönderiyi de belli ki kadın yazmıştı.

İÇERİKLERİN DOĞRULUĞU ÇOĞU ZAMAN SORGULANMIYOR

Fakat kısa süre sonra bu kayıp ilanının bilinçli bir biçimde kurgulanmış bir sahte haber olduğu ortaya çıktı. Haberin ardında bir abonelik tuzağı vardı: Linki tıklayan kendini porno ya da bahis sitelerinde buluyordu. Bu sahte haberin haince olmasının bir nedeni de, mültecilere karşı nefret duyguları uyandırmasıydı. Avusturya’daki sahte haberlerin peşine düşen mimikama.at portalı yalanı çok geçmeden ortaya çıkardı gerçi, ama pek çok Facebook kullanıcısı gönderiyi hiç sorgulamadan paylaşmıştı.

Bu tür sahte haberler son yıllarda hızla arttı. Sosyal medya kanalları üzerinden anında paylaşılabilen bilgilerle beslenen insanlar giderek çoğalıyor; bu bilgilerin doğru olup olmadığı çoğu zaman sorgulanmıyor. Sahte haberler internet kullanıcılarının görüşlerini ve seçim davranışlarını etkilediği zaman demokrasi için bir tehdit oluşturuyor. ABD’deki başkanlık seçimleri gibi, Almanya’daki mültecilerle ilgili tartışmalara da sahte haberler damga vurmuştu. 2017 sonbaharındaki Alman Parlamentosu seçimlerinden önce de bu tür sahte haberler aracılığıyla manipülasyonlar olabilir.

KÜTÜPHANELER SAHTE HABERLERE KARŞI

Kütüphaneler insanları bu konularda bilinçlendirerek sahte haberlere karşı mücadelede önemli bir görev üstlenebilir. Bunun bir yolu, çeşitli haber ve iddiaların doğruluğunun kontrol edilebildiği güvenilir kaynaklar sunmak; diğer yolu da, çocuklar, gençler ve yetişkinlerin medya becerisini teşvik etmek.

Bu konudaki en başarılı örneklerden biri Münih Şehir Kütüphanesi: Kütüphane 2012’den bu yana öğrencilere 5. sınıftan itibaren Sosyal Komünite kursları veriyor. Kurslarda, özel alan, veri koruması ve telif hakları, 2016’dan beri de internette sahte haberler gibi konular işleniyor. Temmuz 2017’de, Alman Parlamentosu seçimleriyle ilgili olarak “Kamuoyu oluşturma kursu” da açan kütüphane, bu girişimi “Kultur- & Spielraum e.V.” derneğiyle işbirliği içinde gerçekleştiriyor. Öğrenciler bu kursta internetteki sahte haberler gibi konularla tanışıyor. “Kütüphaneler enformasyon ve demokratik kamuoyu oluşturma yerleridir. O nedenle, bu tür konuları ele almamız kaçınılmazdı,” diyen Astrid Meckl, bu etkinlikleri meslektaşı Raphaela Müller ile birlikte yürütüyor.

SOMUT ÖRNEKLERLE ARAŞTIRMA

Astrid Meckl konuyu internetteki vakalarla anlatmanın önemini vurguluyor: “Ancak, meseleyi sadece konuşarak ele almak yetmez. Kütüphanenin atölyeler düzenlemesi de gerekir.” Nitekim Sosyal Komünite kurslarında son derece somut örnekler ele alınıyor. “Çocuklarla gerçek vakaları inceliyor, örneğin Bertha Hofmann’la ilgili kayıp ilanından yola çıkıyoruz,” diyor Meckl. “Çocuklara bu gönderinin doğru mu, yoksa sahte mi olduğunu düşündüklerini soruyor, en başta bunu tartışıyoruz.”

Daha sonra öğrencilere teorik donanım sağlanıyor ve haberin doğruluğunu araştırmak için çalışma grupları kuruluyor. Öğrenciler örneğin Facebook’a girip “Bertha Hofmann” diye birinin gerçekte var olup olmadığına bakıyor ya da benzer bir sahte haberle ilgili bilgileri araştırıyorlar. Bu tür haberlerin sahte olduğunu gösteren ipuçlarına rastlanabiliyor çoğu zaman; metinde imla hataları oluyor, herhangi bir kaynak ya da yazar adı belirtilmiyor, şaibeli internet sayfalarının linkleri ya da ciddi kaynaklardan ancak çok dikkatli bir gözle ayırt edilebilen ciddiyetsiz siteler ya da isimler yer alıyor. Astrid Meckl, Google’da resim taramasının da çok faydalı olduğunu söylüyor. Bu sayede fotoğrafların internette hangi kaynaklardan alındığı, manipüle edilip edilmediği kontrol edilebiliyor.

İÇERİĞİN DOĞRULUĞUNUN OYUNLA KONTROL EDİLMESİ

İnternetteki içerikleri gençlerin elbette bizzat sorguladıklarını da söylüyor Meckl. Fakat en çok da siyasi olmayan içeriklere, örneğin Youtube’daki eğlenceli videolara ya da Whatsapp’la ilgili virüs uyarılarına kuşkuyla yaklaştıklarını belirtiyor. Siyasi konularda “tam bir teslimiyetçi tutum söz konusu. Gençler, ‘neden doğru olmasın ki? İnternette öyle yazıyor’ diyorlar”. Siyasi manipülasyonlarla ilgili olası nedenleri gençlerle tartışmanın çok önemli olduğunu vurgulayan Meckl, sosyal botların, yani sosyal medya üzerinden otomatik olarak gönderilen ve siyasi görüşleri etkileyen programlar hakkında bilgi vermenin önemine dikkat çekiyor.

Şu sıralarda Schleswig-Holstein Kütüphane Merkezi (BZSH) de heyecan verici bir proje geliştirmekle meşgul: Sahte Haber Avcıları adlı bu strateji oyununun Schleswig-Holstein’daki kütüphanelerde 2018’den itibaren oynanması planlanıyor. 7. sınıf ve üstü öğrencilerine yönelik oyunun amacı, internet kaynaklarının güvenilirliğinin incelenerek haberlerin sahte olup olmadığının anlaşılması. Oyuna göre, öğrenciler bir dedektiflik bürosunun çalışanlarıdır. Titiz araştırmalar yaparak güvenilir haberler yayınlayan bir gazete, sansasyonel haberler yayınlayan yeni bir internet portalı yüzünden ayakta durmakta zorlanmaktadır. Gazete tarafından bu şaibeli portalı araştırmakla görevlendirilen dedektiflerin amacı, portalı işletenlerin zararlı faaliyetlerine son verebilmek için haberlerin sahte olup olmadığını ortaya çıkarmaktır.

İNTERNETTEKİ BİLGİLERE ELEŞTİREL YAKLAŞIM

Projeyi yöneten Kathrin Reckling-Freitag, “Bunun için öğrencilere çeşitli araçlar sunuyoruz,” diyor. “Örneğin kaynakları kontrol etmeyi ya da satır aralarını okumayı öğretiyoruz.” Gençlerden kütüphanede araştırma yapmaları ve kitapların hangi koşullar altında internet kaynaklarından daha güvenilir olduğunu ortaya koymaları da isteniyor. Reckling-Freitag, benzer projelerin yaşça daha büyük hedef gruplar için de geliştirilebileceğini düşünüyor: “Şu anda en önemli meselelerden biri, gençlerin ve yetişkinlerin internetteki bilgilere daha eleştirel bir biçimde yaklaşma becerisini edinmeleri.”

Astrid Meckl de benzer görüşte: “Genelde yetişkinler teknoloji hakkında gençlerden daha az bilgiye sahip.” Bu nedenle Münih Şehir Kütüphanesi anne babalara yönelik atölyeleri artık daha sık aralıklarla düzenliyor. Sahte haberlere karşı bilinçlendirme çalışmalarında daha geniş kesimlere ulaşabilmek için Meckl ve Müller şimdilerde Münih Şehir Kütüphanelerinin şubelerindeki çalışanlara da eğitim veriyor. 2017 sonbaharından itibaren bu şubelerde de Sosyal Komünite atölyeleri düzenlenecek.

Kulağımıza hep bir yerlerden çalınır: Derler ki, İstanbul sadece bir şehir değildir. İstanbul’un uzağında olan için bu sözün pek bir anlamı olmayabilir. Fakat şehrin içinde yaşayan, bir ara konaklayan veya şöyle kıyısından geçip gidenler için bile İstanbul artık başka bir anlam kazanmaya başlar.

Ancak bu şehri İstanbul yapan asıl unsurlardan biri de sinesinde barındırdığı martılar, güvercinler, köpekler, kediler ve cümle sokak hayvanları değil midir? İstanbul asıl rengini, sesini, kokusunu ve güzelliğini bu canlılarla birlikte kazanmıyor mu? Ve hal böyleyken, şehrin esas “sakinleri” de bizler değil aslında onlar olmuyor mu?

Bu kitapta, İstanbul’da yaşayan, bir zamanlar buraya yolu düşmüş olan, bu şehri özleyen herkesin kendi hayatından bir şeyler bulacağı metinler yer alıyor. 18 yazarın, kitabın temasını odağa alarak yazdıkları öykü ve anlatılar ilk kez okurun beğenisine sunuluyor. Üstelik sadece İstanbul değil, bu sefer odakta şehri onlarla paylaştığımız, şehirle adeta özdeşleşmiş martılar, güvercinler, kediler ve köpekler de yazarların anlatılarına eşlik ediyor, onları derinleştiriyor ve daha da anlamlı hale getiriyor. Ve böylece, Şehr-i İstanbul hepimizi bir kez daha yamacına topluyor.

College students no longer need to hit the gym to pedal an elliptical or exercise bike. At Texas A&M and Rice universities, students can get their cardio at the campus libraries. The colleges spent about $3,100 combined on desk bikes and under-desk pedals this year, part of a growing effort to keep libraries relevant to a generation of students for whom information never has been bound to a dusty book.

The adjustments are part of a dramatic reshaping of the very definition of a library for students and other visitors. “Libraries typically used to be the gatekeepers to knowledge – in the olden days, the stacks were closed,” said Susan Goodwin, associate dean for user services at A&M. “Now, I see us as a gateway. We are facilitators to bring (students) to other experts.” Campuses across the state are pouring money into renovating libraries, adding study rooms, café-like booths and, yes, exercise machines so students can multi-task while studying.

Librarians have shuttled books off-site as circulation has dropped, opening up floor space for clubs to gather or for makerspace centers to build electronics or use a 3D printer. A need for libraries to innovate, of course, is not exclusive to college campuses. Municipal and county libraries across Texas and the country have swapped bookshelves for computers, added cafes and provide a slate of community events in a bid to make them more attractive for today’s consumers.

But universities have an added urgency to keep up: faster turnover in user demographics as each successive class enrolls and graduates. “Every year, there’s a new group of students coming in,” said Debra Kolah, head of user experience at Rice University’s Fondren Library. “You have to learn what these new students need to be successful.”

Along with the under-desk ellipticals, Rice has added standing desks and a room for nursing mothers this year. Students low on cell phone juice can check out a charger from the library, and if it rains unexpectedly, umbrellas are available for loan.

Changing, too, are the functions of the library staff. The University of Texas at Austin hired a data management specialist to work with campus researchers. A&M’s librarians no longer expect to answer questions that can be Googled. Now, they teach visitors how to navigate online databases or answer deep, subject-specific research questions.

So far, college libraries’ efforts to stay relevant appear to be effective. Sixty-four percent of students surveyed in 2015 by EBSCO Information Services, a library consulting company, said they used library resources for research.

This project is part of Pelagios – the networking medium for ancient places

A first version of a tiled base map of the Roman Empire was created in 2012 by the author, in collaboration with the Pelagios project. A second version was created afterwards and became part of an online historical geographic information system (GIS) called the Digital Atlas of the Roman Empire (DARE) hosted by the Department of Archaeology and Classical History, Lund University, Sweden and available at http://dare.ht.lu.se. The map was inspired by the Barrington Atlas of the Greek and Roman World (Talbert, 2000) and was built upon digitization efforts carried out by the Pleiades and DARMC projects even though it became necessary to return to the original map for additional data in order to produce a functional digital map. DARE aims at a high level of accuracy and the integration of digital resources such as satellite imagery, national topographic maps, source texts, other source material and scholarly literature. Since 2012 we have worked to improve the map regarding both its appearance, quality of location, meta data describing properties of the ancient place and links to related digital resources. The most prominent change is however the addition of more than 9000 places (and buildings) with a different provenance than the Barrington Atlas. The Barrington Atlas was limited to the physical size of the printed atlas, limitations that do not apply the same way to a digital map. Most places that have been added appear in national heritage databases which increasingly have become available online the last years, for instance, the UK based heritage databases Pastscape, Canmore and Coflein covering England, Scotland and Wales respectively. Another important change in the new version of the map is the rendering of natural and semi natural areas (forest, grassland etc.) and bathymetry. In comparison with the map created for the Pleiades project, the map created at Lund University contains an additional zoom level, i. e. zoom level 11. The Digital Atlas and its place database is an active project which is updated at least once a month. In 2015, 822 places were added.

The map itself is also used by Pelagios, Pleiades and other projects to provide a more suitable historical context for their mapping applications. Its gazetteer is implemented in the Pelagios project. The base map is Open Data and can be used by anyone under a Creative Commons BY-SA licence. The projection of the map is Spherical Mercator (EPSG:3857) compatible with most Web mapping software and easy to implement. The maximum zoom level 11 corresponds to a scale at 1:250 000.

In DARE, ancient sites are organized as places and buildings (subsites), each with a distinct place type and location. The buildings are not rendered on the base map because of their close proximity to the places they belong to, but are instead available as thematic overlays (e.g. amphitheaters, theaters, temples etc. respectively). Meta data about places and buildings are available next to the map.

How-long-does-it-take-to-read-classic-books-full-size-infographic

Have you always sort of wished you had read more of the literary classics but just assumed they took too long to read? Has it felt like a near impossible task get through thick books with daunting titles like The Odyssey and Crime and Punishment? To be sure, you’re not alone.

But you might be surprised at how quickly you could read them if you just blocked out even a little bit of time. In fact, did you know that some of the most commonly taught books in high school and college English courses–like Lord of the FliesBrave New World, The Catcher in the Rye, and The Great Gatsby–can all be read, on average, in less than five hours?

Granted, everyone reads at their own pace and the classics may be a tad harder to get through than others. But many research studies show that the average adult reading speed is around 300 words per minute (you may be slightly slower or faster than that, even from 200 – 400 words per minute). Based on that 300 number, you could breeze through the majority of the classic works in fewer than 10 hours each. Sure, some are really long reads (consider Les Miserables and The Count of Monte Cristo, which take upwards of 30 hours to read), but most are doable in a week if you simply read for an hour a day. Or, in a couple weeks, if you only read for 30 minutes per day.

Check out this infographic designed by Alisa Scott, specially for TheVisualCommunicationGuy.com. Compare fifty of the most popular literary classics of all time by the date they were published, their word count, and the average time it would take a person to read each.

1980’li yıllarda 40 saniye olan şarkı introları, yani girişleri bile kısalmış durumda. Bugün şarkı girişleri 5-15 saniyeler arasına indi. İnternet üzerinden müzik dinleme servisleri sadece müzik dinleme işlemini hızlandırmıyor. Yeni bir çalışmaya göre, dinleyicilerin dikkat aralığı kısaldıkça pop şarkıları da hızlanıyor. Şarkıların başındaki enstrümantal açılış kısımları, geçtiğimiz 30 yılda ciddi anlamda kısaldı. Ayrıca popüler şarkıların tempoları da hızlanmaya başladı.

Ohio State Üniversitesinde müzik teorisi alanında doktora yapan Hubert Leveille Gauvin, 1986 – 2015 arasındaki ABD Billboard listelerinin ilk 10 şarkısını inceledi. 1986’daki popüler şarkılarda vokalin şarkıya girmesi ortalama 23 saniye sürerken, 2015’te bu süre sadece 5 saniyeye kadar düştü. Yüzde 78 oranındaki düşüş, dinleyicilerin milyonlarca şarkıya dilediği zaman erişebiliyor olmasıyla ilişkilendirildi.

‘Anna Karenina,’ by Leo Tolstoy

“I’m re-reading ‘Anna Karenina.’ There is no better novel I know about how women (and I don’t mean just Anna) – elite, intelligent, educated – are ignored, oppressed, and have little legal recourse. Women are the caregivers, the empathetic. They hold society together and provide salvation even as the priests take the credit.

“Tolstoy’s novel is as relevant today as it ever was. As a sideline, one also learns about technical change in agriculture and how to incentivize laborers to adopt it. And there is more … It is clearly the best novel ever written and worth another close read from us all.”

– Claudia Goldin, economic historian and a labor economist, author of the forthcoming “Women Working Longer: Increased Employment at Older Ages

‘The Internationalists,’ by Oona Hathaway and Scott Shapiro

“‘The Internationalists,’ by the legal scholars Oona Hathaway and Scott Shapiro, explain a phenomenon you probably didn’t even know existed — the decline of interstate war and conquest — with a historical event you probably think is ridiculous: the Kellogg-Briand Paris Peace Pact of 1928, which declared war illegal.

“But in their gripping and evidence-rich book, they make a plausible case. And like The Clash of Civilizations and The End of History, the book presents a sweeping vision of the international scene, making sense of many developments in the news and recent history.”

– Steven Pinker, Johnstone Professor of Psychology, Harvard University, and the author of ten books, including the forthcoming “Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress”

‘Just Mercy,’ by Bryan Stevenson

“I suggest Bryan Stevenson’s ‘Just Mercy.'”

– Stephen Greenblatt, English professor, Pulitzer Prize winner, and author of “The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve”

‘The Theory of Moral Sentiments,’ by Adam Smith

“Every economics student knows ‘The Wealth of Nations,’ but this earlier book presents a far richer and nuanced view of human nature than its more famous successor.”

– Eric Maskin, economist, 2007 Nobel laureate, and author of “The Arrow Impossibility Theorem”

‘Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence,’ by Joseph Aoun

Selections from the National Film Registry by Library of Congress

2017-12-12_11-19-37

The National Film Registry is a list of movies deemed “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant” that are earmarked for preservation by the Library of Congress. They are not selected as the “best” American films of all time, but rather as works of enduring importance to American culture. They reflect who we are as a people and as a nation. The Librarian of Congress makes the annual selections to the Registry after reviewing hundreds of titles nominated by the public and conferring with Library film curators and the distinguished members of the National Film Preservation Board.

This digital collection presents a variety of Registry titles including the World War II documentary Memphis Belle (1944)Master Hands (1936), a beautiful mechanical ballet shot on a General Motors automotive assembly line, and a plea for racial tolerance from Frank Sinatra in ​The House I Live In (1945).

The majority of movies in Selections from the National Film Registry are freely available as both 5 mb MP4 and ProRes 422 MOV downloads.

Selections from the National Film Registry is a project of the Library of Congress National Audio-Visual Conservation Center. The goal of this digital collection is to present to the widest audience possible movies named to the Registry, offering a broad range of historical and cultural documents as a contribution to education and lifelong learning.

These selections are presented as part of the record of the past. They are historical documents which reflect the attitudes, perspectives, and beliefs of different times. The Library of Congress does not endorse the views expressed in these movies, which may contain content offensive to users.

Conarte Library

People love their libraries. And when their governments put money toward them, they even love to visit them. A 2012 report by the Institute of Museum and Library Services found that when investment in libraries drops, as it has in the US since 2009, usage typically falls with it. But the inverse was also true; the more public funds libraries receive, the more people tend to use them.

PERHAPS THAT’S BECAUSE a good library is more than a repository for books—it’s a community resource. It may also explain the recent spate of high-design libraries (and bookstores) popping up around the globe. Many of them function not just as singular temples to the written word, but community centers, auditoria, concert halls, and public gardens. All of them are works of art in themselves. Here are ten of note.

01: Dokk1 Library, Schmidt Hammer Lassen

DOKK1_schmidt_hammer_lassen_architects_011

The Dokk1 library recently won the prize for best public library of 2016, and it’s easy to see why. The 323,000 square-foot library, the largest in Scandinavia, is situated next to the river in Aarhus, Denmark. The building is made from a stack of polygons, giving it a hard, geometric facade. While inside, the space is airy, with windows that overlook the city’s harbor. An unexpected, artistic bonus: The bell that hangs above the central staircase is connected to the local hospital—it rings every time a child is born. The library at Dokk1 is a center for knowledge and culture which disseminates and makes a variety of media come alive across genres and formats. The library is the citizens’ house. Staff and management of the organisation continually work with public involvement.

At Dokk1, you will find about 350,000 media for children and adults. Examples of media are books, audio books, ebooks, magazines, music and games. Such a large number of media in one place requires a logical and clear structure of media that makes it easy to navigate and find what you need. We work hard to make media easily accessible and easy to find. In the library, we make digital media a priority and we are constantly keeping abreast of the future. We still have lots of books as well, of course.

02: Lawrence Public Library, by Gould Evans

Lawrence-Public-Library-Expansion-by-Gould-Evans-08

Lawrence’s new library has the bones of its old. Originally built in 1972, architects at Gould Evans recently gutted the library and renovated it to be more modern and tech-forward. While observing visitors, the architects realized people naturally gathered in the locations with the most natural lighting. This led to them to create reading room with floor-to-ceiling windows.

03: Yangzhou Zhongshuge, by X+Living

Walking into the Yangzhou Zhangshuge bookstore in Zhen Yuan, China is like walking through a river filled with books. The architects say that’s intentional; the building is supposed to evoke the feeling of water, a nod to its riverside location. Hard and paperback tomes line the curved, backlit shelves, which reflect onto the dark mirrored floor, creating a tunnel effect. It’s just the right amount of trippy.

04: The Beyazit State Library, by Tabanlioglu Architects

01_Reading_Room_Emre_Dîrter

The Beyazit State Library in Istanbul isn’t a new building. In fact, it was originally built in 1506, and served as a soup kitchen and inn before it became the state library in the late 19th century. Turkish architecture studio Tabanlioglu Architects recently renovated the space, preserving its bones while adding minimalist modern touches, like tinted glass boxes that hold rare manuscripts. It’s a stunning mix of old and new.

05: Vennesla Library, by Helen & Hard Architects

Norway’s Vennesla library looks like a portal to outer space. A series of 27 arching ribs hugs the ceiling, creating a skeleton for the building. Each rib has an integrated light that lends the cream interior and ethereal glow, while the base of the beam flows into a reading nook. Each rib contains sound absorbing materials to ensure the space is extra quiet.

06: Bodø Public Library, by DRDH

The new Bodø Public Library in Norway is also a cultural center, featuring a three-auditorium concert hall in addition to its 68,000-square feet of dedicated reading space. The white concrete building sits on the plot of a former bus station, and a row of floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto the city’s harbor.

07: Chicago Public Library, by SOM

Chicago-Public-Library-Chinatown-Branch-by-SOM-07

Chicago’s new Chinatown library branch has no sharp edges. The pebble-shaped building is wrapped in glass and marked by solar-shading fins that are meant to reduce heat and glare. The library’s curvy, three-sided shape is built around feng shui principles and designed to align with the avenues outside the building. Inside, the two-story structure is centered around a light-filled atrium.

08: Birmingham Library, by Mecanoo

20140715-152640

From the outside, the Birmingham library in England looks like a brutalist structure wrapped in metal lace. But the building’s vast interior—it’s 312,000 square feet—is filled with bright primary colors and clean lines. The building is home to more than 400,000 books housed on multiple floors, each of which features a cantilevered balcony overlooking a “book rotunda.”

09: New Halifax Library, by Schmidt Hammer Lassen

Halifax’s flagship library (there are 13 others) is 156,000-square feet of imposingly piled glass. Situated in the city’s downtown, the building’s four glass boxes stack, twist, and cantilever to create a stunning building block effect. On top of the building is a rooftop garden for enjoying warm Nova Scotia summers. Inside, the library’s reading room converts to a concert hall.

10: Conarte Library, by Anagrama

004

Mexican design studio Anagrama designed a cozy reading nook inside this Monterrey bookstore to encourage visitors to linger and read. The sea foam blue walls shine through a latticed wood bookshelf that turns the space into a brightly colored cocoon. Stairs cut through the middle of the dome, while padded seats on either side afford comfortable reading spots. It’s visually striking, and clever, use of space.

Everything is not fine in #Libraries -#JustineHyde

slv_dome_0

The State Library Victoria, Australia

My local library is a tiny outpost in the inner-north of Melbourne. It is a utilitarian and slightly shabby 1980s building with weeds growing up outside of it, perched on the slope of a noisy intersection between a pharmacy and a disappointing florist. The opening hours are brief. Inside it is dark and cramped. It has modest stock on the shelves: new release fiction, battered paperbacks, cookbooks, DIY, and children’s picture books.

Despite its lack of promise, the library is a portal to a world of reading because I can request books from the wider network of which it is a part. I order piles of books online from home and their arrival is staccato as they are returned one-by-one to the library by other borrowers. An email pings my iPhone when they are ready to collect, ready to add to my ever-towering reading pile.

When I arrive at the library I skim the shelf to find the books waiting for me, arranged alphabetically by borrower surnames. Each book is bound in an elastic band with a slip of paper tucked inside the front cover bearing my name. I take my haul to the self-checkout machine and scan the barcode of my membership card under the red laser light. A message pops up on the screen: I have a $1.50 fine for an overdue book, Elizabeth Harrower’s A Few Days in the Country. I never did get around to reading it. I returned it a few days late so it has cost me in fines.

Library fines can creep up on you. All it takes is for your child to lose a picture book down the back of the couch, or for you to get sick, or to go away on holiday, or to simply forget the book in the mess of life. In no time, the fines start growing.

I can pay the fine now or acknowledge the message and go ahead and borrow my stack. The library will let me accrue fifteen dollars worth of fines before it suspends my borrowing rights. I press ‘ok’ on the fines message and load my books on the scanner. They register as loans and I drop them into my canvas tote bag.

The Large Hadron Collider produces 30 petabytes of data per year at the CERN Data Center in Geneva, Switzerland.Philippe Braquenier

PHILIPPE BRAQUENIER IS obsessed with all the ways humanity preserves information. Not just libraries and data centers, but weird stuff too, like Reyers Bridge in Belgium that housed its blueprints inside the bridge’s pillars and the Bahnhof company in Sweden that’s decorated like a space station.

He’s spent the past four years traveling around Europe and beyond shooting the photos in Palimpsest, the ongoing series he calls the work of a lifetime. Let others ponder the rich stores of knowledge within these places; Braquenier is fascinated by the spaces storing it. “The preservation of knowledge is the cornerstone of evolution,” Braquenier says. “If you lose any kind of important information, you are doomed to try to recover it.”

The idea came to him as he read a scientific paper explaining how digital devices can lose information. He fell down an internet rabbit hole of research that led, in May, 2012, to the Royal Library of Belgium and its 6 million books on 93 miles of shelves. He has since followed his muse to no end of interesting places, like the Swiss Federal Office of Metrology and its copy of the international prototype of the kilogram, the only base unit still defined by a physical object. “The whole building is created so that it doesn’t have any systemic shock,” he says. “Walking was really strange—there’s no movement, it’s like a spongy floor.”

Of the 31 places Braquenier has visited so far, CERN remains his favorite. He got to see the Large Hadron Collider, which produces 30 petabytes of data annually. “I was intrigued by how they are preserving knowledge,” he says. “The Hadron Collider makes so much data in one experiment, they have to process it for months.” The enormous whirring data center makes such a racket he had to wear ear protection.

Braquenier found analog data centers like libraries and the Mundaneum—a repository of 12 million index cards meant to catalog the world’s information—welcoming. Their digital counterparts weren’t always so accommodating. No one would let him inside Google’s data center in Boudour, Belgium, so he photographed the chain-link fence outside. Security guards still jotted down his license plate number.

The photographer is no less fanatical about preserving his own data. He stashes copies of his prints in a dark, dry drawer in his office and keeps backups of everything on two hard drives. Just in case.

The Global E-waste Monitor 2017

iswa

Increasing levels of electronic waste, and its improper and unsafe treatment and disposal through open burning or in dumpsites, pose significant risks to the environment and human health. They also present several challenges to sustainable development, and to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). A better understanding and better data on e-waste will contribute towards the achievement of several goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In particular, it will help address the SDGs related to environmental protection (Goals 6, 11, 12, and 14) and health (Goal 3). It will also address Goal 8 that focuses on employment and economic growth, since the sound management of e-waste can create new areas of employment and drive entrepreneurship.
ICT Uptake and Shorter Replacement Cycles Are Contributing to the Growth of E-waste
The growing amount of e-waste is the result of several trends. The global information society is growing at great speed. It is characterized by an increasing number of users and rapid technological advances that are driving innovation, efficiency, and social and economic development. By 2017, close to half the world’s population uses the internet and most people in the world have access to mobile networks and services. Many people own more than one information and communication technology (ICT) device, and replacement cycles for mobile phones and computers, and also for other devices and equipment, are becoming shorter. At the same time, disposable incomes in many developing countries are increasing and a growing global middle-class is able to spend more on electrical and electronic equipment, consequently generating more e-waste. Current trends suggest that the amount of e-waste generated will increase substantially over the next decades, and that better data to track these developments are needed.
Generation of E-waste Has Grown to 44.7 Million Metric Tonnes Annually – Equivalent
to Almost 4,500 Eiffel Towers
This report provides the most comprehensive overview of global e-waste statistics following the guidelines that were developed by the Partnership on Measuring ICT for Development1. All the countries in the world combined generated a staggering 44.7 million metric tonnes (Mt), or an equivalent of 6.1 kilogram per inhabitant (kg/inh), of e-waste annually in 2016, compared to the 5.8 kg/inh generated in 2014. This is close to 4,500 Eiffel Towers each year. The amount of e-waste is expected to increase to 52.2 million metric tonnes, or 6.8 kg/inh, by 2021.
