Food for thought from the VALA 2010 Conference
If our technology focus is on print, how do we expect to survive in the electronic world?
If we are not part of the infrastructure of our parent institution we are doomed to irrelevance.
Most of our students are digital natives so we have to get cracking.
We can’t disadvantage users depending on the type of device they use.
End users expect discovery and delivery to coincide.
In the words of public librarian Charles Robinson’ “Give ’em what they want.”
Space for print collections has given way to other priorities.
Amazon sells more ebooks than printed books.
The single purpose ebook reader is dead or will be.
Technology isn’t a long term investment.
