In this edition of Thinking Out Loud, George and Joan take a look at IT in libraries – more specifically, about the relationship between library culture and IT culture. What do libraries look for when hiring IT people? What sorts of skills are needed? What might be reasonable expectations for libraries to have? They decide to frame this discussion with Ranganathan’s classic Five Laws of Library Science.
Also mentioned during this podcast, this Library Journal article.
