Here’s another in my irregular series of posts of news and commentary related to my job.
Library Crunch writes on how a Culture of Fear is adversely affecting library services to teenagers.
Meanwhile, the ALA is putting some of teenagers’ favorite social networking tools to use for the library.
On Tame the Web, one individual reflects on her career as a librarian and what it has taught her (and yes, if you keep reading, there’s stuff about social networking to keep with the theme thus far).
The Ubiquitous Librarian provides something to look forward to at the ALA conference in Washington, Punk + Zen (and librarians).
Ben Macintyre tells us that libraries will survive the digital revolution (and it’s because social networking can be done in person too).
And why shouldn’t libraries thrive in the digital age since Librarians are the Enemies of Books and have been for some time.
That’s it for now. I should be blogging about more library stuff soon from ALA.
