Requiring APIs or other standardized ways to access information from vendors and commercial suppliers (libraries are users theirselves)
Getting a more transparent, standardized and Web-like approach to data (the Web is simple)
Commitment to open library data and information, sharing them (i.e. making them hackable) and letting users, stakeholders and applications (e.g. Course Management Systems, Facebook Apps, browser toolbar etc.) access them (openness, addressability, discoverability)
"It isn't the cables, it is the computers which are interesting"
“ It isn't the computers, but the documents which are interesting”
“ It's not documents that are important but the things they are about which are important”
