Marcel Fortin is a man in demand.
 

Fortin, the geographic information systems (GIS) and map librarian at Robarts Map and Data Library, is a master at mapping spatial data, the geographic dimension of information. The popularity of this discipline has skyrocketed during the last 10 years, especially with the advent of Google Maps and Google Earth, he says.

“Spatial data means thinking about things in relation to geography. People often haven’t done that before,” says Fortin.

Doug Mirams's curator insight, July 1, 8:49 PM

Presentation by Nate Hill, Assistant Director at the Chattanooga Public Library, which had the best quote about the Social Library (which I believe Chattanooga and a number of other systems embody) "This  isn't about designing new services for those who already value the library. This is about designing new services and creating value for new users."

Future U: Library 3.0 has more resources, greater challenges

Future U: Library 3.0 has more resources, greater challenges | Library Corner | Scoop.it
Libraries strive to balance the physical and digital despite dwindling budgets.
Miguel Mimoso Correia's insight:

"For ladies and gentlemen of a certain age, the library is changing too fast. For kids, it's not changing fast enough. University students are caught in the middle. Their library experience must be like surfing: riding the edge of a moving wave, never quite cresting, never quite crashing. Such a state has to be thrilling, but ultimately exhausting."
