Libraries have gone through incredible changes over the past few years, and it seems like the cycles of change will turn even faster in the future. Of course, the kinds of change depend on the type of library. The transformation of collections from print to electronic media, increasing involvement with digitization of local library materials and the development of new services to accommodate new generations of library users represent some of the many classes of change that impact libraries today.
I’m keenly interested in the how technology supports the missions of libraries, and how librarians can find the best match for their library’s requirements among the products and services available. Today, libraries need a very different type of automation support for their operations than they did in the past.
