CIL’s Common Message

Ruth at Utopian Library reports on CIL:

The common message at this year’s conference, at least from where I sat in each room, is this:

  • The library has a story to tell.
  • The story is about community. It’s not about the library.
  • The community and the library can engage and support each other through creative use of social software and the library’s online presence.
  • The library’s online presence and “virtual branch” rely on precious resources: money, staff, and time.
Loads of conference blogging to click through. Thanks Ruth.
