Kindrd works by making ‘Links’ between things. A Link can be anything; the city that inspired an album, the book that led to a film or two songs that just feel like they go together. These links help us to explore the things we love and discover media in a whole new way. We call it ‘Mapping Culture’.
Libraries are continually changing to meet the needs of users. This includes implementing discovery tools, also referred to as web-scale discovery tools or services, to make it easier to search through their physical, digital and electronic collections. Even if these tools are still new, vendors and suppliers are continuously improving their functionalities offering new services…
On 9 January 1909, British polar explorer Ernest Shackleton and three companions reached a new Farthest South latitude of 88° 23′ S, a point only 180 km from the South Pole and were forced to return to McMurdo Sound in a race against starvation.
On October 18, 1989, the unmanned NASA spacecraft Galileo was launched on her mission to study the planet Jupiter and its moons. Named after the astronomer Galileo Galilei, it consisted of an orbiter and entry probe, which descended into Jupiter's atmosphere.
Die neue learn:line NRW orientiert sich an der aktuellen Bedarfsentwicklung im Bildungsbereich. Eine stetig wachsende Zahl an Bildungsinhalten in einer immer größer werdenden Plattformgemeinde macht das Auffinden konkreter Unterrichtsmedien fortlaufend schwieriger. Die neue learn:line NRW stellt sich dieser Herausforderung, indem sie eine zentrale Suche für qualitative Bildungsinhalte bietet. Ein Datenpool von zurzeit ca. 14.000 Bildungsmedien ermöglicht über eine differenzierte Suche das Auffinden gewünschter Materialien.
