Why I've Called This Libra/Tech...Not Lee-bra

The ALA and the Association of College Research Libraries delve into a very relevant topic about the state of librarians. It's such a great time to be a librarian and this article really sums up the benefits of being an information leader in the 21st century. This is a must read. And in my humble opinion, it's a very inspiring article; not just for librarians but for educators, parents, and all who are pioneering this new information age we live in...the new enlightenment age only our children know about.

Libraries and librarians in the 21st century: Fostering a learning society1
C&RL News, December 2004 Vol. 65, No. 11
by Robert S. Martin

"We need to evolve into agencies that focus not on collections, but on the needs of the users. We need to develop facilities that recognize, embrace, and encourage the collaborative and social nature of learning. We must create learning environments that empower student learning, enabling them to turn information into knowledge. We must extend these lessons from the realm of the university to all levels of formal education, from kindergarten to the research university."
