  27. 27. Pages carrying books from the stacks
  28. 28. Then we moved on…
  29. 29. Is this your library today?
  30. 30. Why we shouldn’t back away now <ul><li>Extending what we always did/who we are </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Building on our strengths as information advisors </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Doing it better and faster </li></ul><ul><li>Freeing staff time to do what only staff can do </li></ul><ul><li>Time shifting </li></ul>
  31. 31. The burning question: What should we do? <ul><li>It’s not what we CAN do, it’s what we OUGHT to do, based on: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Information resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Human resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Financial resources </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Making intelligent and strategic decisions </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Where do we want to go? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Where can we lead the way? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Internal operations : Streamlining processes </li></ul><ul><li>External operations : Exploiting technology to increase the number and diversify the types of interactions with users </li></ul><ul><li>Start small </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use the experiences of other libraries to inform your trials </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consider partnerships with others </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Begin with internal experiments (e.g., Wikis for professional development of staff) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Expand to the user community using Library 2.0 to inform and engage users </li></ul></ul><ul><li>A library is a learning environment </li></ul>
