I was participating at a video storytelling workshop where my team members were assigned to a library. There were polite groans about what story can you find in a library. I tried to tell them thousands of stories but they still thought they drew a bum hand.
This video is from another team who interviewed Brian Quigley at the UC Berkeley Earth Science and Maps Library. There is one point in the video that Mr. Quigley made that is was really important. You have to have a collection and build upon that collection before you need it.
So, I don't think it matters if you are a library lover, an assistant, technician or librarian. I think we need to speak up for and encourage usage of the physical buildings called libraries. I don't think it should be analog versus digital content. It is the protection and preservation of what came before and what is to come.
