We cannot have good libraries until we first have good librarians— properly educated, professionally recognized, and fairly rewarded.

    I… suspect this may not be where this is supposed to go, but here it is:

    “The real debate, and it is sure to be vicious, will come from within
    our own ranks. It will be from the annoyed librarians of the world who
    seeks the status quo and see their mission as recorded knowledge, the
    collection of artifacts, and the maintenance of organizations labeled
    libraries.” Lankes believes that change-averse “bibliofundamentalists”
    can be “convinced and shown the way,” but also that there comes a point
    when “the debate must end,” and “we will have to leave them behind.”
    This is a hugely important issue I can almost promise you you will be
    dealing with after graduating and getting a job. What will you do when,
    bright, bubbly and full of ideas and ideals, you are faced with the
    staunch ‘old guard,’ unwilling to change or entertain new approaches to
    things? Will you try to convince them? Make the changes seem innocuous?
    Fight them? Let them have their way? Wait for them to retire? Or just
    walk away and leave them behind?
