The Library as Conversation

“The Library as Conversation” Library Adaptation: Expose Yourself, WNYLRC Conference, Buffalo, NY.

Abstract: Every librarian has “the story.” That story about linking a patron to a needed social service or helping someone get a job, or simply find the perfect book. These stories lie at the heart of the library. Books, videos, web pages, these are simply artifacts – tools to aid in the libraries true mission of building knowledge. The keynote will outline a vision of libraries as true and participatory knowledge organizations. Organizations that facilitate the conversations of their communities, not simply provide access to a collection.
