a rose by any other name???

once again, the scope of this blog is expanding . . . kinda. in the discussion regarding the future of a library without books, i suppose that we have to re-define what a library is. and, in turn, a librarian.

seth godin, writes business books, most notably "Purple Cow: Transform Your Business by Being Remarkable (available for the kindle for $9.99)."

senor godin has a blog (who doesn't, right??), seth's blog so as not to be confused with bob's blog, and he ruminates on the future of the library.

BUT . . . just when you thought libraries and librarians were unappreciated comes 85 reasons to be thankful for librarians,courtesy of zencollegelife.com. i know what you're thinking . . . only eighty-five??!! baby steps, people, baby steps.

there are some excellent reasons to love librarians, and in turn libraries. some important (#27), some humorous (#s 33, 34). and some (#s 10, 13, 43) that may make you wonder if libraries ARE still relevant in their current form.

things that make you go hmmmmm . . . that's what i'm here for. my work here is done (for today).
