Libraries are changing, it’s true. I’ve posted about embedded librarians, taking the library to the community, offering unique programs and services, and much more. But in my opinion, libraries have always been changing. From closed stacks and chained down books to open access, from book catalogs to card catalogs to online catalogs, from subscription libraries to truly public libraries open to all. . . and these are just a few examples.
But there is no doubt that libraries are continuing to change today. ALA’s Transforming Libraries provides “one stop access to information on resource, publications, webinars, and online discussions. . . related to the many aspects of library transformation: ebooks and digital content, community relationships, user expectations, . . . ” and more.
I suggest you check it out.
