I get very excited at the power and promise of what we’re doing: innovative services, new buildings, the harnessing of new technologies to extend our services in surprising ways, and much, much more. With that in mind, I offer a few simple hopes for this shiny new year. Many libraries are doing these things already while others are testing the waters. Wherever your institution is going, these are things I hope for:
I hope that we tell our story well.
I hope that we guide our users into the digital landscape.
I hope that we make good decisions.
I hope that we open our doors to everyone.
I hope that we encourage the heart.
