Thank You Erik, Jaap & Geert!

I must thank the fellows of the LBI Shanachie Tour!

Jaap, Erik and their colleague Geert came to campus at 1am on Saturday morning and – God Bless our Campus Security – they camped in our parking lot! Saturday morning found them awake and ready to speak to my LIS753 class. Afterward, they invited any interested students to play a round of What’s the Future of Libraries? with a spinning bottle. The cameras and videocams were grabbing every second:

I was impressed with the students who participated and summed their feelings about where libraries are headed. The DOK Delft Public Library model really got them talking. We debriefed for a long time after lunch.

A couple of students have already posted to the blogs:
