Librarians in the Wired Chronicle

Today in the Chronicle of Higher Education's Wired Campus blog 8 of the 10 stories come from the ALA midwinter meeting. Don't miss the story featuring Rush Miller, the Director of the University of Pittsburgh Library System : according to the story, Mr. Miller, who holds a doctorate in medieval English history, said that when he came to Pittsburgh, in 1994, he concluded that the library was a feudal society. “I said, Whoa, I haven’t seen this since I studied it,” he said, as the audience broke out laughing. “You had kings and lords and people surrounded by moats.”
