The Hyperlinked Library Model: Elevating Local Knowledge

I’ve been inspired by the hyperlinked library model. The most exciting aspects of the model to me are the ideas of sharing and building local/intergenerational knowledge, elevating the practices of everyday life (rather than the sensational), the local identification and meeting of needs, and building places for local storytellers and narratives (rather than allowing corporate media to build our meaning). I’ve tried to capture this in this presentation.

I’ve really enjoyed this class and look forward to pondering how my practice can advance the rich ideas I’ve been exposed to through the course modules and the postings of my fellow students. Thanks, everyone, for sharing amazing thoughts!

Here is my virtual presentation.
