“The library is not a shrine for the worship of books. It is not a temple where literary incense must be burned or where one’s devotion to the bound book is expressed in ritual. A library, to modify the famous metaphor of Socrates, should be the delivery room for the birth of ideas – a place where history comes to life.” ~Norman Cousins


This post says it all, but essentially, because the blog just talks about the stuff I do all at the same time. Much of it has to do with libraries or my research, but not all.

  1. Hi, I just read your post on the library as a creation space. I was wondering if you’d done more research on the topic. I’m on the RI Library Association Conference Committee and we’re trying to find a speaker about the library as creation space, theory and execution. If you would be interested please contact me (I know we’re a bit far away). Thanks so much,
