Brian Matthews' White Paper "Think Like a Startup: A White Paper to Inspire Library Entrepreneurialism" has topics that will tie in with the May 10 LAUC Assembly discussion on next steps for planning for future librarianship.
A snippet from the paper:
“The media and pop culture provide us with romanticized visions of dorm room ideas becoming billion dollar IPOs. And indeed, that does happen sometimes, but startups are more than rags to riches stories. In concise terms: startups are organizations dedicated to creating something new under conditions of extreme uncertainty. This sounds exactly like an academic library to me. Not only are we trying to survive, but we’re also trying to transform our organizations into a viable service for 21st century scholars and learners.” with link to pdf of report
