Please join in the discussion re future of libraries

I just wanted to let folks know about the critical discussion on the future of libraries and librarianship going on now at free Government information (FGI). John Shuler, a librarian at UI Chicago and one of the editors of Government Information Quarterly has been busy writing about the future of government documents in particular and libraries in general. He started the day after the election as a continuing thought piece "75 days to government information liberation." Please read the last post first. In particular, please read Jim Jacobs' response because it succinctly (and brilliantly IMHO!) summarizes the thread. We'd love it if you'd come over and add your thoughts to the discussion!
