Good quote

"...the heart of libraries: Good people offering effective access to varied, worthwhile collections that center on books."
     From What Happened to Technological Fixes? By Walt Crawford.

See also the August American Libraries cover story "Staying Public: The Real Crisis in Librarianship" by John Buchanan and "Restore Our Destiny: Full--Not Plural Funding" by Thomas J. Hennen Jr. Available online only to ALA members via ebrary or on one of your library periodical databases perhaps? I just checked my local library's Expanded Academic ASAP for the article, but they only have AL through June/July issue as of today. So non-ALA members might check in a day or week or so.
