Last September I participated in the virtual Summit Ebooks: Libraries at the Tipping Point hosted by Library Journal and Library School Journal. One of the sessions everyone was, and still is, talking about was the talk by Eli Neiburger (Neibruger is an Associate Director for IT and Producation at a public library and Library Renewal board member). Thanks to the magic of the Internet and YouTube the talk is available online for free.
One of the reasons I’m blogging this when so many other people already have is because others have focused on the screwed part. (Let’s not get into to possible reasons why.) I want to highlight the last part of the “We are so screwed” statement Neiburger makes which is “unless”. There is hope.
I strongly suggest you take the time and watch it and consider the points he makes.
What do you think? Do you agree with him?
