Hmmm...looks like Perth in Sept 2011 is a goer..for NLS5. Methinks I will make it, and methinks that I'll stay longer and see other places...dunno what places though...but Margaret River would be a good start.
Poke. Poke. Poke - that is all :) :) Would love us to be as active and interesting as LSW...but maybe we can do that at LSW... Seriously....maybe we could copy them and have our own electronic bake sale to get Jo Beazley to IFLA if she decides to go ???
we've got chat/txt reference widgets embedded in various places, libguides, vodcasts, lending laptops, getting netbooks to lend, digital signage ... getting Primo which I hope will do a few Good Things too. Still lagging behind in basic places like paying fees online, adding credit online, good booking room systems.
OK - any explanation why ALIA has a pseudonomynous columnist who claims moral high ground and even resorts to "won't somebody think of the *children*" arguments? One that misrepresents new media in libraries so that even the most techie minded librarian would agree to the evil - if indeed the programmes were actually as stated ?
So my q is - how do we start working towards library 2030 in 2010. I want more engagement in the process. My workplace often uses our 10 year plan more it seems as an excuse not to do things now - but to "plan" them for the future.
