Library Advocates

ALA Washington Office

The American Library Association's Washington Office tumblr. We post about federal policies that affect libraries, including copyright, privacy and access. We also post about ebooks and, admittedly, the occasional library fluff.

Library Advocates

Mar 7
“Heading up a research library involves predicting the future, [Wendy Lougee] said, and ‘sometimes we delight and sometimes we displease. We have the potential to be deeply engaged in every aspect of the knowledge process, from discovery to creation to sharing to preserving. We’re no longer thinking just about stewardship.’”

Faculty consider the future of research libraries, by Gwen Glazer (Cornell Chronicle Online). (via johnxlibris)

Gwen was our 2010 Google Policy Fellow. So glad to see her insight has spread to tumblr and Cornell Chronicle.
