You can’t afford not to do these things

As I started reading this article I got to the words in the first paragraph where they state that time is the only cost in implementing their strategies. I thought this may be another one of those articles which is full of ‘you need to do Web 2.0’ without considering other costs. As I read on the authors started to discuss the impact of the economy on running a library. They talked about how important it was for directors to get around to the sites. Then they offered up the option of video as an alternate means to communicate. I really liked the video from Jeff Krull ( In the video he was able to discuss the realities of how financial changes would impact on the 4Bs as he put it. If I was a staff member I think I would have a better understanding of why things were happening.
