Edlef schmunzelt in zukunftssichere Bibliotheken pessimistisch über die Ideen amerikanischer (Library) Movers und Shakers. Er zitiert David Lee King:
Future-proof librarians must be not just comfortable with change but able to lead it.
They must be computer/social networking experts. Blogs have been around for over 11 years, social networks for even longer. Computers have been in our libraries for more than 20 years. Why are we still hiring people who can’t use these tools? Why have we kept people on staff who can’t use them? Our library world is quickly changing, and computers and online communities are a major component of future-proofing a library.
