Defining Library 1.0

Libraries (and any bureaucracy) are excellent at planning and preparing ? we often prepare and plan for years ? but when those plans are put into place and executed we have a tendency to walk away without performing constant follow-up… I think that what we need to remember is that Library 1.0 is a restrictive place, governed by strict hierarchies, rigid boundaries, and underpinned by change-avoidance. Perhaps this is sufficient — knowing what we are wanting to move away from and where we want to go. The mechanism that is Library 2.0 will assist us in this journey.
