Thank you for posting. I plan on sharing with library employees in the next Dean’s update. I think we (everyone who works in libraries, consultants and library leaders) struggle to articulate a future given new and emerging business models, yet I am encouraged by the many (95%) who believe in libraries. I appreciate Mr. Rothskill’s honesty and agree there must be some urgency to our work. I hope his talk, your post and the comments that follow inspires us (see above) to examine on our beliefs, our values and our organizations as a means to improve upon the user’s experience. As we lean into any discomfort, let’s remain positive and create environments where it is ok to take risks, fail and improve.
Hear, hear, Jon! Thanks for your comment.
