Worry Tank

Deadly Dozen Worries for Libraries

  • Is technological change an opportunity or a threat?
  • Cooperation and Collaboration requires standards and regulation: Which ones do we choose?
  • How do we address the changing landscape of competition and co-opetition?
  • How do we deal with the changing learning space?
  • How do address that swirling soup that is the changing demographics of our users?
  • Can we sustain the profession of Librarianship?
  • How do we deal with the changing vendor landscape?
  • How do we brand, market and sell the Library and its great services and collections?
  • How do we energize the entire sector and avoid polarization: smokestacks and islands?
  • Can we really sustain advocacy for libraries?
  • Where will we find new Leadership? Who is in charge of the Vision?
