I just wanted to let you know about a new project we are starting here in NEKLS. The project is a book discussion for people working in libraries, focused on emerging trends in the intersection of society, libraries, and technology. We received grant funding to buy multiple copies of the books and we've developed an online site for discussion (we'll also have discussions in other ways -- OPAL? face-to-face?). We're hoping to generate some great discussions! The website is at http://intersections.nekls.org
Take a look at this cool way for library folk to discuss a book, starting with The Long Tail. Could you do this in your library system? For the consortia? At the state level? I think so. What book would you start with?
