Digital humanities in the library isn't a service
"Last week, Miriam Posner started an interesting discussion online with a blog post about some of the challenges of doing digital humanities in libraries. Posner identifies challenges rooted in the structure of libraries as organizations, in the organizational position of libraries within universities, and in (academic) library culture"

"Commissioned by the Strategic Content Alliance and undertaken by Ithaka S+R, the ‘Sustaining Our Digital Future: Institutional Strategies for Digital Content’ report, issued today, tells of how three distinct organisations – Imperial War Museums (IWM), the National Library of Wales (NLW) and University College London (UCL) have risen to this challenge. This essential research is accompanied by a suite of tools, advice and videos (see below) that will enable and guide you to take a fresh look at whether a project is delivering the desired impact in the communities you aim to serve and to consider new ways to enhance the value of your content for your users."

Library Services in the Digital Age | Pew Internet Libraries
"The internet has already had a major impact on how people find and access information, and now the rising popularity of e-books is helping transform Americans’ reading habits. In this changing landscape, public libraries are trying to adjust their services to these new realities while still serving the needs of patrons who rely on more traditional resources. In a new survey of Americans’ attitudes and expectations for public libraries, the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project finds that many library patrons are eager to see libraries’ digital services expand, yet also feel that print books remain important in the digital age."

Serious Service Sag - Adaptive Path
This is a big gap where businesses choose to invest in their services. They spend a lot of money to tell you how great the service is, and then, all too often, the service doesn't live up to the hype. Brands become hypocrites thanks to their own investments.

Some resources for reference assistant training in a scitech library : Confessions of a Science Librarian
"Yeah, this is a ton of reading. The point isn't that someone should memorize every word, most of the the articles probably only need to be scanned. What I'm hoping for is a list of resources that will help someone get acclimatized to reference service and hopefully become aware of many of the main issues around such services in academic libraries. As well, there's a bit in here about some general issues in academic libraries."

How to Save the World - The Careless Society
In each case we took some activity that we once self-managed, collaboratively within our communities, and made it into a 'specialty' someone else did for us, for money. We went from self-sufficiency to helpless dependence, from collaborative citizens to 'clients'. Now, the large majority (and growing) of our society's jobs, costs, and GDP, all come from this vast, amorphous 'service sector'.
