  • This compilation certainly contains some thought provoking images, ideas and messages. The role of librarians and information professionals in this era of internet has been discussed very precisely highlighting that the need of information experts at present time has never been felt so demanding than ever before. This show revolves around the key of “Time” that has been presented to be in terms of “Now” i.e. now it’s the time for change to capture the present and secure the future of libraries.

    I am glad to read that Mr. Potter has allowed its embedding anywhere and everywhere but with attribution..thats the big thing.

    Thanks to Ned Potter...Thanks indeed.
