Web Thing #15

I've been reading some of the essays in Library 2.0 and Web 2.0. Wendy Schultz' essay, To a temporary place in time... caused my head to spin a bit, but the concepts, to the extent I can understand them, are thrilling. I just hope I'm still around to be a part of Library 4.0.

The icebergs Rick Anderson talks about are another thing altogether for me. I understand the need to keep pace with the innovations provided by technology and demanded by our patrons. At the interface represented by our local libraries I think we will need to move forward with alacrity or be left in the dust. Nonetheless, I have to say that somewhere, somehow, the tried and true hard copies need to be maintained and preserved.
