“The only reason we have pearls is the irritation of the sand” and we have been urged to continue being “an irritation”. The UK is investing £8million on the rejuvenation of libraries so they expect to see more joint use opportunities and hybrid libraries. The conference ended to day with a reminder that joint use libraries are here to stay and each one will be different. However one of the questions asked which is worthy of discussion is Information gathering behaviours – are they the same for all users? Cannot stay too long only have 10 mins remaining from 20 – had to attend to home and work emails first. Great news about the SLC – has made my day. Got my 5 min log out reminder, Bye.
