The time for libraries is NOW

Just thought I’d share this slide-deck made by Ned Potter. I think it’s just the job, positively exudes wikiman-ness and deserves to be posted all over the place, so I am doing!

It’s geared towards public libraries, but one of the brilliant things about it is that these issues (transliteracy, the digital divide, information overload) are cross-sector – library and information professionals all have to deal with stuff like this, no matter who our patrons are. We have shared values and aims – this is a message we need to send out to the profession and the public, and the over-arching themes in Ned’s slide-deck do that admirably.
