Futurist Stephen Abram and Director and State Librarian Peggy Rudd on the role of libraries
In this podcast, Stephen answers such questions as:
- Is this the end of libraries as we know them?
- Technology-wise, what are some of the things that are really changing the world for libraries and librarians and what do you see in the future?
- What is it about e-books that has caused fear among the ranks of librarians and do you think it is a justified fear?
- In light of the current budget deficits around the country, how do we make our best case for libraries?
