Thanks FGL for such a nice bit to ponder this am. http://feelgoodlibrarian.typepad.com/feelgood_librarian/2005/04/the_beauty_of_d.html Are you reading this most cool Front Line Blog?
And guess what? Your library sounds the same way if you tell patrons (of any age) that they can’t IM from your library because that’s not a valid use of your public computers. You’re basically telling people that their choice of communication channel isn’t allowed and that they should go elsewhere because you won’t be serving them today. ROCK ON!
