    Libraries also have a brand: we are the information centers of our communities. That information may come in the form of books, programs, or access to technology, but that is our main goal. If we start to veer too far from that brand, we dilute our effectiveness and muddy our message. We risk alienating our patrons and supporters while overwhelming our staff to the point where we are trying to do so many things that we do none of them well. Staying on message, on brand, makes it that much easier to communicate with our communities who we are, what we do, and why we matter.

In multicultural Australia, libraries should be non-negotiable assets | Fatima Measham ... - 6 views

    "when funding for a new public library in a burgeoning suburb like Tarneit is pulled, it is not just a building that is jeopardised. Studies consistently demonstrate significant dividends from public investment in libraries. In Victoria, every dollar spent on libraries delivers $3.60 of benefit, through things like literacy initiatives and economic stimulus via local employment and expenditure. "

Locus Online Perspectives » Cory Doctorow: Libraries and E-books - 9 views

  •  
    "The age of austerity has not been kind to libraries, and in many places they are the last ''storefront'' that still tries to put books into the hands of readers. Treating them like a captive market to be exploited is a huge - and potentially fatal - mistake on the part of publishers. If publishers wanted to get something truly valuable out of libraries, they could do no better than to help create a free, open alternative to Overdrive that gives them the data they need to compete with the e-book retailers and frees the libraries from their expensive circulation-management burdens."

Keeping Public School Libraries Relevant - 13 views

  •  
    "Public school libraries have always served an admirable purpose in education. In an indirect way, K-12 libraries have given students support in learning endeavors and been a go-to spot for information. With that being said, as the first Internet-generation rises through the public school ranks, libraries need big changes to remain relevant. It is not enough to simply "be there;" school libraries need to reach out to students and pull them in with helpful resources that combine traditional and contemporary theories in literacy."
