Changes in the Library

February 19, 2010

Happy Friday! Today’s post is short and sweet, so I’ll just get to it and stop the introductory remarks. Or as the Doctor would say, “Allons-y!”

First, go read this great post, Don’t Forget about Us. It is quite crazy that marketing departments, corporations and just about every advertisement agency focuses on the 20-40 year old demographic, but libraries often do not focus on this group. This is an unacceptable gap in our service and a great opportunity for libraries to become more relevant to a very important segment of the population.

If you have never watched one of the Common Craft “in Plain English” videos, you are in for a special treat. And if you have, you already know that Common Craft has a wonderful gift for explaining even complex issues in a jargon-free and humorous way. This video has been making the RSS feed rounds and is called “Staffing the Library of the Future in Plain English.” Check it out below:

I hope you have a fantastic weekend, read a lot and the Waki Librarian will be back next week with more library fun.
