Michael Gorman podcast on InfoSpeak

A podcast from my old Alma Mater. The Conviction of Michael Gorman: “Michael Gorman is a cultured and accomplished man who dares to speak his mind. Are his views intolerable?”

    “This is not a man prone to mincing words; he fences with them expertly in a duel of ideas.” How I wish I had the time to respond to that as fully as I’d like to.

    Well, I just finished listening to the podcast and I think he is conflating the use of technology and the internet in libraries with not using books.

    I do not know any librarians that are saying we need to abandon books and reading and focus solely on the internet. This isn’t happening! What is happening is using technology to reach people who do think they can find everything with a Google search.

    And library gaming programs are not replacing story times!

    I read a lot and I use the internet a lot. I don’t see that as a conflict.
