What do libraries do well? What do search engines do poorly? In this collection of writings Consultant Abrams addresses the unspoken questions of the many audiences within the library profession, including the array of librarians for schools and corporations, vendors and technology specialists, about the value of libraries and how to explain it to the public, the impact of new technologies from PDAs to the aforesaid search engines, and recent changes in the clientele of the library and how to focus on the clients to come. Along the way he gives powerful advice on achieving advocacy while maintaining objectivity, moving from succumbing to technology to anticipating and applying it, understanding communities and creating learning and information communities from that understanding, and attending to the future of librarianship.
