Ranganathan's Laws Revisted

Last night, I introduced my LIS701 class to Ranganathan's Laws. Remember this from last semester: http://tametheweb.com/2007/01/would_you_rewrite_ranganathans.html

Here's what last night's group came up with:

Group Redux
Rewrite the laws? YEP!
1: Materials are for use and not just in library
2: Every user his or her material
3: Materials are for all
4: Save the time of the user
5: The library is an evolving organism (catering to the needs of the community)

We had some pretty darn cool discussion about the nature of information, documents and the digital divide.
