When librarians are obstacles

Blog post from Molly Kleinman, taking on the accusation that librarians are frequent obstacles to innovation and progress. Key excerpt: "If they see us as an obstacle it is only a matter of time before we become obsolete. We want those experimenters and innovators to view the library as both a resource for and a partner in their work, and we can do that by funding innovation among our own staff, expanding our definition of the library’s role on campus, and embracing the possibility of failure. If we neglect to do these things, we don’t just risk becoming obsolete, we guarantee it."
