LSSI Scares Me

I remember working with these LSSI folks back in 2002. Seems they continue to take over libraries and operate them like franchises.

In my setting, I can't see it happening.

If these guys got Walmart like consumer demand data, they could in theory do a better job than most libraries today. Realistically, if our faculty really did their jobs to the highest standard, they would select all the library's materials, teach IL in the classroom and work with LSSI to make online course readings infrastructure.

But it will never happen...because faculty want to do less and less, not more work. The library is a service for them and their students to consume not be part of...

I'm still watching LSSI though...
