University of Oregon
“It is likely that by the end of this decade, every job within the academic library will have undergone significant change when compared with assignments of the recent past or the present. “
“Creating the Agile Library: A Management Guide for Librarians”, 1998

Or something in between…
“What a glorious feeling!”
