#LibraryFutures Archive 2014

These 250 Twitter posts were published using the #LibraryFutures hashtag (most recent content at the top). I used this hashtag to support DESN 302 (Design and Innovation), a course at the U. of Otago (Dunedin, NZ) that ran from Feb. 24 - May 30 2014. Research paper:


  1. A search for "libraries" in turned up more curators of library-related content than I could count.
  2. Redundant parent. Will work for hugs.
  3. I just came across this recently-published book that argues for the continuing need for libraries.
  4. Library books — use 'em or lose 'em.
  5. Who would have thought anyone would question the relevance of libraries?
  6. In this TEDx talk (Denver Colorado, November 2013), Pam Sandlian-Smith tells a touching story about the importance of space for anyone in our public libraries. "Happiness and education" are key objectives, she says.
  7. We used this article in the DESN 302 (Design for Innovation) seminar this week. The prospect of the 'bookless' library is becoming a reality in places.
