People watching with a purpose : meeting needs before they need it by Soaring to Excellence( Visual )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Libraries (public, school, and academic) are re-visioning their roles in communities, moving beyond the rapidly outdated paradigm of creating services for patrons and students and instead partnering with community members in building meaningful experiences: whether those happen within the library's walls, on a digital network, or in cultural and political spaces. Taking an asset-based, grassroots view, librarians and library educators advocate using a community informatics model toward library services, where significant engagement can happen. In this program, we discuss this paradigm shift, why it's so necessary, and what it looks like in the real world

Are these trends? Just fads? Plain old Folly? We'll deal with a central question in this teleconference: To what extent do Libraries need to quickly adopt new technologies into their programs? Or, just because you can do it, does that mean that you should?

The continuously growing number of materials, especially electronic resources born into a digital environment, has led to a re-examination of cataloging practices and suggestions for new methods.
