For thing #15 I read Away from Icebergs, Into a new world of librarianship, and To more powerful ways to cooperate.
In Away from Icebergs, Rick Anderson comments that there are three “icebergs” that can threaten the success of libraries in the near future. They are the “just in case” collection , reliance on user education, and the “come to us” model of library service .
The “just in case “ collection, titles that are available just in case someone needs them, is no longer necessary. With the same information available on the internet, this frees up enormous space and money for other things.
Secondly, resources have to become as user-friendly as possible. It is the library’s responsibility to eliminate barriers between the student and the use of resources.
Lastly, in the post print era, library services have to be placed in the user's environment like the Web, to make sure as many students as possible have access to library services, and to give them access at times when they are not in school, such as after school, on weekends and during school breaks.
