Session 4

Sunnuntai 27.04 klo 15-18

Afternoon: Library culture: from book lending to media/event production

Kirjasto 10

The Library 10 is a combination of music and IT and is the 'flagship' for Helsinki City Library's ideas about the future role of the public service library in Helsinki.

"Located in the city center’s main post office building, Library 10 is a modern music library. It offers the most diverse music collection in Helsinki. There are also movies, IT and travel guides, and comic books available for loaning. The library receives numerous periodicals and newspapers as well. In addition to traditional library services, Library 10 offers many new services to its patrons. In the Audio-editing and Rehearsal rooms, one can practice or record music. The Stage functions as a venue for cultural performances, discussions, and other exhibits. The Group Work Room can be reserved for meetings or other uses. The library is equipped with a wireless network for laptop users. Of course there are numerous computer workstations that can be reserved and some available by queuing. If you just want to relax and listen to music, Library 10 loans headphones that can be used in tandem with fixed CD-players. The library is open to all."

Andrew Paterson.. invites Kirjasto 10 users

The ‘Clip Kino’ role of guest-host (ie. the arranger of video-clips found on the internet) is intended for anyone and everyone. This is especially true for Kirjasto 10 patrons and users, who often frequent it's lending and reference service for music CDs, books and scripts.

This session will focus on music and its representation in online media platforms. In this Clip Kino session, Andrew will ask a random selection of people who visited the library on the weekend, for nominations of a music video clip.

For each, we will discuss the different issues surrounding its presence online.
