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.
