I recently read in another blog about the perception of information and how that is rapidly changing with new technology, and expectations. Of course we all know this is happening, but sometimes having these things in print makes us realise what we’re doing everyday without even noticing. We all access information in a more creative way than ever before and no doubt that will increase with the advent of 2010. I’m looking forward to raising the profile of information retrieval and trying out all the new ways of delivering information.
On a lighter note, isn’t it just great how all movies depicting Librarian’s have them as the most intelligent, interesting character?
Librarians are the secret masters of the universe. They control the knowledge. Don’t piss them off.
