So thankful there are so many wonderful Technical Services people to keep an eye on these issues for us! And I do miss a beautiful South Carolina salt marsh. Lovely photo!
The “lively Lunch” sounds excellent! It’s good to know that other schools are experiencing this challenge! If anyone can help address this at ZSR, it’s you, Molly and Kyle! Thanks!
I love your metaphor and can’t wait to see how you finish it! I’d be interested in hearing more about evidence based acquisition. And your photo IS lovely.
Like a tree falling in a forest, there is an element of being in the wrong place at the wrong time, (smaller than the tree and on the side that where the vegetation was crushed.) But also the right place at the right time (smaller than the tree but on the side that benefits from the extra sunlight post tree-falling.) Good post. My own metaphor of ebooks and vendors and librarians has been more one of a surfer on a surfboard trying to stay atop a wave. I like your metaphor better.
I’m glad you got to that Lively Lunch session, as I unfortunately had a conflicting appointment. Will is one of my scholcomm colleagues to whom I frequently turn to for advice, including in this current work you, Kyle, and I are undertaking. Looks like you ended your Charleston time in a beautiful spot, warm weather notwithstanding!
