Just in time...

ALA just released a new report - Confronting the Future: Strategic Visions for the 21st Century Library.

This report is just in time for us as we start putting together our final thoughts this summer. The report talks about a lot of things we've discussed, especially the idea of the virtual library versus physical library. Will we be used more virtually in the future and will our physical buildings still matter?

We've discussed this back and forth as we've moved forward, with the majority of us still thinking the physical building and presence will matter, but to what extent? I think that's what we struggle with the most. To what extent will things shift from virtual to physical and vice versa?

If anyone has any insights to share with us, please do so!
