A New Feed and a New View of IT

I came across a new blog today, by a systems librarian in Australia, named Carolyn McDonald. Her blog is the Red Dirt Librarian. Her second post is about IT Management models in libraries.

Technology must be managed well and, IMHO, with users in mind. I have begun to see a need in many of our libraries for a human face to be put on IT. The videos iACPL are doing are a great way to make IT seem less scary to the rest of us. The newest installment from iACPL (link above) shows how a new breed of librarian may be changing the way libraries approach IT. Sometimes it only takes one person to be the tipping point in a department, one project, or something that can push the technology to be about people and not IT.
