Abstract:
There's a lot of focus on the "Next Gen" librarians out there, wrote Freedman, "bringing a youth perspective that's supposed to shake things up and introducing new ideas and practices into a profession that sometimes moves forward at a glacial pace." But the ideas of the new generation don't invalidate the work done by those who came before. In fact, change in libraries tends to be a lot more evolutionary than revolutionary. And while generational and technological divides have always been with us, Freedman concluded, "when others have at least started the conversations on these matters for us, it would be silly not to glean what we can from their experience."
