17. April 2015 · Comments Off on Future of Libraries: A Conceptual Model · Categories: Uncategorized

I’ve been asked to talk at the University of Maryland iSchool, my alma mater, on May 1 about a number of things including job search strategy tips as well as the future of the profession.

Here is a conceptual model I’ve built to address the future of libraries. Simply put you need three things: people in the field, good ideas created or at least formally proposed by people in the field, and resource allocators who are willing to fund/support these good ideas. When you have all three that points to a road-map as to what the future of the industry will look like.
