Searching them Middle Kingdom For mBuried Treasure

WordSalad: Brigham City Library Blog - Thu, 05/21/2015 - 11:10am
Searching the Middle Kindom For Buried TreasureSue Hill4.5 StarsMay 21, 2015 The Porcelain ThiefHuan Hsu back to book I've read many memoirs, so was excited to see a new take in Huan Hsu's "The Porcelain Thief." I was drawn in from the very beginning and felt like I was parting with a good friend when the book ended. Hsu is a fabulous writer. I love his honesty and his bluntness when things don't go according to plan in China. And he weaves in Chinese history that makes it fascinating even for those who know how things turn out along the way. I found myself laughing, crying, and wanting to slam my fist down in frustration as he trekked through China in search of his great-great grandfather's lost porcelain. But there is so much more to his story than that. It's also a personal journey in search of identity and acceptance. He writes about many family members, so the family tree at the beginning is helpful. My favorite characters besides Hsu include his colorful uncles Richard and Lewis, along with his cousin Andrew. Huan Hsu's great-great grandfather would be very proud of this book.

Why children need more than ebooks

WordSalad: Brigham City Library Blog - Fri, 05/15/2015 - 12:04pm



In Praise of Print
Given the focus on ebooks these days, could old-fashioned print books provide a superior reading experience? Actually, yes – especially for young children whose literacy skills are just beginning to emerge. Here are eight reasons to keep recommending traditional books.
   1.  No need to make choices. Lacking hyperlinks, paper books enable total immersion in reading – no need to continually pause and ask, “Should I click on this?”
2 2.  No distractions within the text. Research suggests that the visual and aural gimmicks and game-like features embedded in many kids’ ebooks draw young readers’ attention from the written words, diminishing their memory of what was read.
3 3.  No Internet temptations. The only thing you can do with a paper book I read it, while with Web-enabled ereaders, the temptations of the Interment are a click away.
4 4.  Imagination required. Without the bells and whistles of ebooks, young readers must mobilize their own imaginations to fill in the gaps left by authors and illustrators: what a character looks like, for example or the sound an animal makes.
5 5.  Satisfaction of the senses. The smooth feel of paper and the rich colors of illustrations are laragely lost in ebook reproductions. The distinctiveness of the reading experience is reduced, as well – such as when an oversized picture book is squeezed down to the size of an ereader screen.
6 6.  Literary attitudes. Children accustomed to using digital devices for fast-aced entertainment may approach an ereader with the same expectations, while a printed book comes with an entirely different set of associations: a quiet focus on words and stories.
   7.  Easy to share. A printed book lends itself to being shared by children and adults, while an ebook may not be shared quite so easily. Research suggest that parents reading ebooks with their children are less likely to stop and ask questions or make comments, and more likely to issue commands. (Swipe the page now, Don’t touch that button)
   8.Strong selection. The number of quality children’s books published in paper still vastly outnumbers those available in a digital format. Research suggests that the ebooks selected most often by children and parents are more akin to movies than to books, and thus dubious value in promoting emerging literacy.

Six Degrees of Acronyms: BYU in the DPLA

Harold B. Lee Library News - Thu, 05/14/2015 - 2:48pm

The new Digital Public Library of America (DPLA) is a great resource for content about our country. What most people don’t know is the The Harold B. Lee Library (HBLL) was one of the early contributors to the system.

The Lee library is part of the Utah Academic Library Consortium (UALC), a group of university and college libraries who have teamed up to improve libraries. UALC created the Mountain West Digital Library (MWDL). The MWDL is run by a small team of dedicated, creative, and very effective people who have built a collection of images and other content from across the intermountain west. As the MWDL collections grew, along came the DPLA and the great folks at the MWDL, who jumped at the chance to participate. Suddenly, people throughout the country now have easy access to many of the Lee Library’s images through a nationally known system.

If you pay attention, you will find content from BYU appearing in papers and articles around the internet.

 

 (Coach Romney in ‘Counselor at Law,’ 1930s. Courtesy University Archives, L. Tom Perry Special Collections, Harold B. Lee Library, Brigham Young University, via Mountain West Digital Library.)

 

So, BYU-HBLL-UALC-MWDL-DPLA-You

I bet you had no idea that it took so many acronyms to get great content on the Internet.

    Eggsectly The Perfect Cookbook

    WordSalad: Brigham City Library Blog - Mon, 05/11/2015 - 4:36pm
    Eggsectly The Perfect Cookbook.Sue Hill5 StarsMay 11, 2015 The Perfect EggTeri Lyn Fisher and Jenny Park back to book I think there are many times when I question why I need to purchase any cookbook ever again.And then I run into a prefect cookbook like "The Perfect Egg: A Fresh Take on Recipes For Morning, Noon, And Night."  I really love this cookbook. 

    The book is broken down between morning, snacks, afternoon, night, and sweets. There are a wide variety of ethnic dishes; some that i was familiar with and some that are new to me.  What I love about this cookbook is that many of the entries have 6 to 8 variations that give the reader the ability to change the finished outcome to their personal liking.

    I appreciated the section on Decoding Egg Cartons too! Again great job of informing the reader to the difference between Cage-Free. Free Range and other terms. Then the two page beautiful color spread of the several different types of eggs used in cooking. All the way from Quail, to Ostrich and everything in-between.

    I found the Anatomy of an Egg section most fascinating. I didn’t know an egg had so many parts! Grin! Then the authors start with cooking Techniques under the section titled Eggs 101 Basics and how to handle and store eggs – great stuff.  In fact I learned I was storing eggs incorrectly.

    I love breakfast foods for any meal and this cookbook will give me many recipes to try.

    Staff Reading Pick


    Book: Boston Girl by Anita Diamant

    Recommended by: Karen

    The story begins when Addie's twenty-two-year-old granddaughter asks "How did you get to be the woman you are today?" And 85-year-old Addie tells her story beginning in 1915 - the year she joined the library group for girls at a Boston neighborhood settlement house. Thus begins the coming of age story of a young Jewish woman growing up in the North End of Boston in the early twentieth century.

    A great read! It made me wonder how I got to be the person I am today.
