The team at Open Shelf has returned after our end-of-summer break reinvigorated. We enjoyed our “time off,” but are just as excited to meet the challenges and joys of the autumnal season.
What’s new in Open Shelf: April 1, 2019
Continuing our tradition, we bring you a special issue today. One that incorporates the bizarre and the silly and puts a spotlight on creativity. These articles are special because you won’t find them in the mainstream news. Don’t worry, they’re not alternative facts, more like, alternative realities.
Ever wonder how a mid-career library cat feels? Are you a mid-career library cat in need of some pointers? The mid-career malaise of a library cat is for you!
Feeling unsettled? Don’t read any of the following articles:
Staffless libraries: Have they been hacked, or worse, are they alive?
To leave or not to leave: The case of Ex-Libris, the Remainders and the Library Union
As always, we invite your comments, feedback and thoughts. Enjoy, and don’t forget to check out our regular issue, out in just a few days!
