Abstract (Document Summary)

The author has been fortunate to have opportunities to work with almost all aspects of technology used by libraries. One of his main areas of interest is helping libraries identify and implement the technologies that are most able to help them succeed in their strategic missions and to perform their daily work more effectively. In that context, he has come to see technologies as falling into a spectrum of innovation, ranging from those with a cutting-edge flavor to those that are well-established with proven capabilities. Although he has always enjoyed learning about and working with new tech gadgets and services, his work with libraries has been mostly about the larger-scale strategic systems that are mostly at the other end of the spectrum. Of course, it is important to look for the glimmers of innovation that can breathe new life into these workhorse systems, but overall, they succeed or not based on their operational effectiveness.
