The Lion's Roar - StudySC.org


"Well, after much thought I decided it was best to not do our biweekly podcast any more. Just too much work and not a lot of return - SO, I developed this. I'll be doing more of these and posting them to the SC State Library's YouTube channel. Enjoy!"

I’d like to leave you with a presentation by Dan Greenstien, who gave the opening keynote at the Survive or Thrive conference in June. He encouraged university librarians to think about “what kind of investments institutions will and will not make in their libraries when funding is scarce.” I think this is a question that we will all be forced to answer.

Welcome to the library. Ive got a library card. Ive got a shopping cart. Ive got a list of every book that I could possibly want. I pull up to that public library. Stroll in flash my library card and Im V.I.P. Circulation staff asks man what you need? I say I need a fantastic bodacious book to read. They say no problem man I can help you with that. Just take a look in the stacks and you can see what we got.
And oh my goodness oh my word what do I see? Books from the floor to the ceiling welcome to the library. Theres so much information at the library. All the fiction and non fiction that you could ever read. They got reference books, journals, biographies. And blockbuster movies on VHS and DVD. They got books in large print and books on cd. And books in different languages that I cant read. They got all the computers and online resources that you need.
And loads of periodicals and magazines. The library got books. Classic and contemporary. They got old photographs and newspaper clippings. They got books In Spanish man . . . yo hablo espanol. Read this book and translate what I said yo. They got book clubs, events, local history. And storytimes and picture books for little kiddies. And best of all man everything you see is free.
As long as you got a card that says library!
