discussion outcomes

We finished off the assembly with a breakout discussion on the topics I posted below. There were 9 tables, and everyone went to the one that interested them. Then each group reported back. The discussion seemed to go quite smoothly and there were some interesting ideas. Maybe the most controversial was one from the outreach group, who proposed a "no resources" day: we turn off everything electronic (and have eLinks redirect to a page that tells you what's going on), and see what people have to say! The reasoning was that people use the library's resources, but often without realizing it.

There was quite a bit of debate about this and other topics. Coming up, we will be posting notes from each group on this blog. (I also plan to post my notes about Perry Willit's talk, which I didn't have time to do yesterday).
