David Lankes on “Killing Librarianship”

For my librarian friends out there (you know who you are). This is the keynote from the New England Library Association Annual Conference, delivered October 2, 2011. He has a lot of interesting and provocative ideas about the future of librarianship that are well delivered in this talk. He even manages to get a shout out to law librarians. Should give you something to think about on things like dealing with the folks who come through the front door and librarians’ role is society (hint: is shouldn’t be passive). Well worth the hour.
