Casey and Stephens bat for balanced change

From their column in Library Journal; “Simply put, choose what fits for you.” I imagine they wouldn’t want that sentence to become a cover for complacency- “what we have fits us fine”- but it’s good to see a realistic approach to getting new things done. To an extent the article still relies on the image of libraries as change-resistant (Library 1.0 anyone); which may be-let’s face it, is- true for some, but I wonder if it is still the dominant model.

That said, if change is truly rooted in what users need/want, then the risk-friendly evaluative model proposed will naturally lead to the right technologies- and other new services- being deployed.
