Libraries: we share shit


Watch Eli Neiburger’s brilliant presentation - Access, Schmaccess: Libraries in the Age of Information Ubiquity -  about information, the interwebs, Reddit Scholar, digital content, memes, ebooks, Metallica, sharing, intellectual propery, nyan cat, DRM, lovely Louis CK…and what it could all mean for libraries. 
“In the 20th century libraries brought the world to their communities. In the 21st century libraries bring the information of their communities to the world.”
“What would the library look like if you spent half as much on experiences as you do on collections? The reality is we’re probably going to run out out of stuff to buy over the next ten years…”
