Eine Präsentation von Chrystie Hill zum Thema "Community: it’s the new content" (TEDx Columbus)

In neglecting the social nature lof documents and our users, we neglected to nurture, or at least to articulate, the very social nature of our own roles. I believe and am hopeful that we can reverse these trends and perceptions by returning to our core values and applying them to the present information landscape and experience. To start, I think we’ve been asking the wrong question. Instead of repeatedly asking: “Where is the library?” we should be asking What is a library?” […] Libraries should be about people, not about books. When librarians pay attention to their patrons, they learn about their needs and how they can serve them better. In other words, it’s about human interaction and a desire to connect with other people in the community.”
