Dotting the "I"s

We read alot about what kinds of changes are happening at libraries and that we need to consider in our future. Few of us have crystal balls yet we all want to make sure we are ready, trained and responsive to the waves of the future. LISNews had a goodie-bag full of posts in the last day or two that has me thinking...

Merry-the-Librarian has a thought-provoking post on the many facets of her identity as a librarian and millennial and her work with students. There is so much that we are as librarians and people...bringing those pieces together in work and our non-work life create a marvelous meld and may help us navigate what is coming.

Today on Groundhog's Day, out pops Marilyn Johnson's book This Book is Overdue!: How Librarians and Cybrarians Can Save Us All to check for the shadow of the future of libraries. Looks like the forecast is healthy yet. I'm about 100 pages in and it is a fascinating look by a layperson at our library world. It's always good to read another perspective.

And finally, on the thinking about libraries radar from the always-at-the-pulse-of-libraries LISNews, is a post from a writer in Ontario about the changes in his library that point the way for all of us to think about the many technological and social changes happening.
