By now, nearly everyone knows about Pinterest, a social media tool that has changed the way we collect things online. And we suspect that some of the best boards are from our lovely librarian friends. Because nobody knows collecting and organizing information like librarians.
Star Pinners and Boards
American Libraries Magazine
Excellent digital libraries board as well as a ‘What’s Happening in Seattle in 2013’ board that captures the highlights from the Midwinter Event.
Seattle-based teacher pins ideas for creating a literacy-rich home. Great board with over 730 pins of literacy activities.
Library and Information Science
A collaborative board of (our fav!) library and information science related stuff with over 130 pinners.
New York Public Library
Seriously, all the boards here are great, but some may swoon over the Downton Abbey one.
The Librarian’s List
A group board with over 1000 contributors that is maintained by the O’Fallon Public Library.
207 boards and over 13k pins; all on excellent, intriguing categories. Yum!
