Senior Moment

How could I have forgotten to include one of the major presenters at our staff training day?! It can only be explained as a "senior moment." (Sorry, Michael!)

Michael Porter, "Libraryman", gave two excellent presentations: on how technology is providing the means for libraries to enter the virtual spaces inhabited by today's library users, and on gadgets available now that are transforming the way people interact with information. He said libraries are places (real or virtual) where content and community intersect. The question is whether libraries can get it together soon enough to remain relevant tomorrow.
