Last week I posted a link to an article in Edutopia Magazine for a column
called Ask Ellen that concerned the library.  I mentioned that I
thought it was fairly knowledgeable about what we do (because it was in a
general education magazine instead of a library journal), but another
lm_net member was disappointed in the article.

She said, "I really didn't get the same positive impression of the
information in the article. What it said to me was, if you're struggling
to come up with a vision for your library, get a lot of people together
and lead them by beginning at the end with a vision. The struggle was to
come up with a vision in the first place. I have the same problem...where
to go from here, and I got no clues from this article. We need an article
from someone who actually has a vision to share."

In a subsequent email she asked me to ask all of you to share your vision
(for your library) for the next 5 years. If it's Ok with our new
moderators, I would like to ask that you please post to the list. This
should be an interesting discussion. Thanks!
