  2. 2. A little about me…
  3. 3. Innovation and libraries: Adapt or be irrelevant?
  4. 4. For example…
  5. 5. The Haskell Free Library and Opera House: the front door is in Derby Line, Vermont, the back door is in Rock Island, Quebec.
  6. 6. Why I love libraries…
  7. 7. Public libraries in the United States are THE most democratic and uniquely American of all our institutions.
  8. 8. “ Technolust – an irrational love for new technology combined with unrealistic expectations for the solution it brings.” Technoplans vs. Technolust by Michael Stevens Library Journal, November 1, 2004

  15. 15. As librarians and instructional technologists, we must: <ul><li>Do the unexpected </li></ul><ul><li>Act on crazy ideas </li></ul><ul><li>Trial and error </li></ul><ul><li>If technology serves no goal, then it serves no purpose </li></ul>
  16. 16. Relevance to our community is to give them what they want, how they want it. As librarians, we may deem their behavior as “inappropriate”.
  17. 17. I believe that libraries and technology are a natural fit together.
  18. 18. Thank you!
