I’ve been working the step-child section too long. When libraries started collecting videos (gasp!) the common philosophy was – and I’ll never forget or forgive this – to put them in the back of the building so patrons would have to pass THE BOOKS to get to them. Forget this Library 2.0 nonsense of giving them what they want where they want it!
I’m hoping this space will let me talk about what’s coming up from where we’ve been.
