“If I ran a Library” : Don Yarman on Librarian 2.0

Nice post from Don Yarman who works in Ohio:

Especially this bit about iTunes:

If I ran a library, I would be looking to see what I could do with this. Not just following the Shifted Librarian’s suggestion to buy some iPod shuffles to circulate. How about a public iTunes download station? Let library users set up their ‘pods on the station and download a title or two to their own devices? The library could even rip their own CD’s to the public iTunes station. Look, you know that iPod owners check out the CD’s and rip them to their devices; why don’t we just save them the trouble? This isn’t total anarchy — we’re librarians: we’ll find some way to impose rules.
