Code4Lib2009 …again

The Proverbial Lone Wolf Librarian just posted this link on his blog about staffing, library culture, and digital projects.

The link is to Michael Edson’s blog, Using Data. The brief presentation called the Web Tech Guy and Angry Staff person really strikes at the heart of many difficulties that we face within the library culture. We need to get our content out there, make it visible, searchable, browsable. We have seen that looking resources up in closed stacks did not work. This closed gate community in terms of online content will also not work. Also, the library and librarian as the sole authority in town has never been true. Knowledge comes from the encounter of the many and not just one source.

Take a look at the presentation: Web Tech Guy and Angry Staff Person
