Predominant press were doing fine when data was difficult to get and significantly harder to disseminate.

Today, individuals hope to share data, not be nourished it. They hope to be tuned in to when they have learning and bring up issues. They need news that associates with their lives and interests.

Viking Village is an alternate way to deal with Social Media than making a facebook page or conveying library news through Twitter. The substance is client produced, and keeping in mind that we make the space for taking in, the adapting much of the time occurs without the cooperation of administrators or staff. Then again, not at all like the greater part of what occurs on facebook or twitter, we have the chance to watch it happening and take an interest if and when it is proper. Like the idea of the learning house, Viking Village is a space which encourages and empowers learning. Library as Place, Online
