I just saw a great letter in American Libraries March 2009, page 10 from Beth McNeer – Libraries as a Business Model. She points out how librarians know how to economize and how AIG and all the industries that need bailouts now could take a tip from the way we do things. It’s well worth reading.
4/8 After getting my alert on this blog post, I realized the article link may not take you directly to the article, so if it takes you to the American Libraries page, scroll down and under Online Features on the left side, click on Login is no longer required to view the current issue and in the search box enter the article title. Then click on the result from the 3/09 issue and on the right side under Page, enter 10 and press enter.
