We do this through programs, publications, volunteering, and networking.
Maybe this does not make much sense, but when you consider that by doing what we do (I mean ALCTS as an organization) we are guiding people into new areas of interest, exposing them to new ways of doing things, in effect, lighting their way down a path that they may not have taken.
But what of the other light; the light that informs, is a realization, is an idea.
We, as an association, deal in light, but we do not think of it as such.
Libraries should restructure access to reflect anticipated use.
They will need to focus much more on personal and organizational development.
As we gathered recently in Seattle, I was frequently reminded of the 1964 Bob Dylan song that began, “Come gather ‘round people Wherever you roam And admit that the waters Around you have grown And accept it that soon You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you Is worth savin’ Then you better start swimmin’ Or you'll sink like a stone For the times they are a changin’.” So much is happening that is changing the landscape of libraries and librarianship, and it is not limited to collection development, preservation, and technical services.
It is the very nature of an association like ALCTS to spread light into, shed light on, enlighten, highlight, light a pathway, and be a source of light.
It is also the very nature of ALCTS to be light (as in nimble or having nimble-osity or nimbility) with a touch of light (as in not serious).
There are many activities taking place within ALCTS as revealed in the numerous conference reports.
