“Well-run libraries are filled with people because what a good library offers cannot be easily found elsewhere: an indoor public space in which you do not have to buy anything in order to stay.” Zadie Smith

JOYCE VALENZA IN TEDxPHOLADELPHIAED - SALLY RESEARCH
Que bem que explica como tudo tem vindo a mudar em termos de formas, meios, fiabilidade e rapidez no acesso à informação e como as bibliotecas devem acompanhar estas mudanças!
"In a short space of just over 20 years we've migrated from an information desert to information tsunami."
"A library is a place to participate, to invent, create, to share, to explore. It's more kitchen than grocery store. More transformational than transactional. It should be noisy. [...] Our learners should be transliterate.
I'm a librarian. It's never been a more exciting, more rewarding or more important time to be a librarian. Learners have never needed us more."
