Walters - TheWalters Art Museumin Baltimore, Maryland, has donated more than19,000 freely-licensed imagesof artworks toWikimedia Commons. The Walters collection includes ancient art, medieval art and manuscripts, decorative objects, Asian art and Old Master and 19th-century paintings. The images and their associated information will join our collection of more than 12 million freely usable media files, which serves as the repository for the 285 language editions of Wikipedia. The project began taking shape in February 2012, as part of theGLAM-Wiki initiative(Galleries, Libraries, Archives, and Museums).15Not Business as UsualIts All LocalLocal Collections are the Dark matter of a Linked Data world ~ Susan Hildreth, Director IMLS, DPLAWest 2012

The Mission of Librarians is to Improve Society through Facilitating Knowledge Creation in their CommunitiesR. David LankesAtlas of New Librarishiphttp://www.newlibrarianship.org/wordpress/

Libraries have re-conceived goals, shifting from a collection-centric focus to one that is engagement-based

True deep engagement

What is driving this? It is the network, social structuring of how we work and collaborate, and the demand for and glut of data.17Service TurnDefining distinctive services with the clarity with which we have defined distinctive collections allows us to acknowledge that the 21st century will be marked by different, but equally valid, definitions of excellence in academic libraries, and that the manner in which individual libraries demonstrate excellence will be distinctive to the service needs, and to the opportunities to address those needs, found on each campus.Scott Walter. Distinctive Signifiers of Excellence: Library Services and the Future of the Academic Library. Coll. & res. libr.January 201172:6-This lecture, reflecting on future roles, posits the potential dawning of a great age of librarians,if librarians make the conceptual shift of focusing on their own skills and activities rather than on their libraries18Library or Librarianship?

Its not about the books

We need to choose: the building or the communities ?

A degree does not define us

We must understand that if we limit our vision to the care and feeding of our buildings and our collections, if we spend too much time worrying about how to get people into the building so that we can serve them, we will fail to meet our critical responsibilities to society. The care and feeding of our buildings and collections still needs to be done, but we cannot allow it to define us. T. Scott Plutchak

wouldnt we be better off talking about the value of the work done by those who work in libraries, regardless of degrees, job titles, or faculty status?

It is about being seen as a cricital component on the knowledge creation cycle in an information based economy. This lecture, reflecting on future roles, posits the potential dawning of a great age of librarians,if librarians make the conceptual shift of focusing on their own skills and activities rather than on their librariesthe gatekeeping impulse has a great deal to do with a desire to preserve the field as a site of virtue.

But I wonder if there is a way to change the narrative (hat tip to Bess Sadler for the phrase). What if the story was that the work libraries do is so important and so cool that everyone wants a piece of it? Or that libraries are such logical places for a broad range of services and resources that of course we need to hire folks with a broader range of education and skills and talents? And in terms of faculty status, I love whatDeborah Jakubs had to sayon an earlier post:librarians are learned and talented and bring skills and attitudes and services to the university that most regular faculty both admire and need. So rather than constantly trying to compare ourselves to faculty, and often coming up short, lets celebrate the differences and complementarity.

It is time to experiment back to the idea at that we are the beginning stages of the mash-up between the social network and digital content.

But what they especially encouraged me to convey is what one person characterized as a sense of optimism that comes from being encouraged to take risks, and another as excitement to share even failures as a positive outcome (that is, as a learning experience for everybodya scholarly and social contribution we can all make, when we are not asked to hide our messes or mistakes).

Talk to someone new

Contribute constructively

Snark less, listen more

We connect people to knowledge. We bring people together with the intellectual content of the past and present so that new knowledge can be created. We provide the ways and means for people to find entertainment and solace and enlightenment and joy and delight in the intellectual, scientific and creative work of other people. This is what we have always been about.Plutchak T.S. http://www.tscott.typepad.com/tsp/2007/01/what_do_you_cal.htm Many challenges facing the libraries have a solution started, or achieved in other communities we need to be willing to adopt technologies, and professionals that are developed outside of libraryland.
