    11. 16. Configurable? Extensive configurability is essential so librarianship can show end-users identifiable value.
    12. 17. OSS extensions ensure that which is common can do that which is uncommon.
    13. 18. Branding Is stamping the library name on the delivered information AND the value of librarianship on the end-users mind.
    14. 19. Support is better because your vendor does the common and your staff does the unique
    15. 20. We need to work together.. while being realistic in our expectations.
    16. 21. ill-informed legislation (about cloud computing in libraries) will result in ill-informed citizens.
    17. 23. Cloud Computing unites libraries so researchers start higher and go farther
