If you have not yet seen this article, be sure to read, “Things that Keep Us Up at Night” by Joyce Kasman Valenza (JudyG’s guru) and Doug Johnson (speaker for our copyright session at ISLMA last year).
It makes many, many provocative comments on topics of importance (e.g., use of space, copyright issues, social media, reading, intellectual freedom and more) to the future of librarianship and has generated quite a bit of debate, much of which is linked from Doug Johnson’s Blue Skunk Blog and Joyce Valenza’s NeverEndingSearch Blog. This article seems sure to be a topic of conversation at ISLMA and AASL.
Consider adding your own comments to one of those blogs or add them right here. As you read the article, what’s an idea that strikes you?
