Thanks

On Tuesday I had the privilege of speaking to a great group of librarians at the NGAL (North Georgia Associated Libraries) meeting in Rome, Georgia. We discussed Library 2.0 as it applies to library services and technology. If there was one theme to our talk it was the idea of getting out of our physical library and finding out what our community wants – not just the community that comes into our buildings and already uses our services, but the community of non-library users who never even think to use our resources.

I want to thank Susan Sexton-Cooley, Director of the Sara Hightower Regional Library System, for providing such a wonderful and inviting venue. They have a beautiful library up there in Rome. I also want to thank Laura Savastinuk, Sheelagh O’Malley Johnson and Jeanne Hozak of NGAL for inviting me to speak.
