Librarians play games “on the clock”. News show flips out. Locals talk to their representatives. Nebraska Library Comission produces 27 page report explaining what went on.
The Library Commissionâ€Ÿs actions in acquiring gaming equipment and a few representative games is proper and in accord with the agencyâ€Ÿs state statutory mission and its purposes in introducing new technologies, techniques and providing information and instruction in the use of these technologies. Innovation requires latitude in researching, examining and use of new and emerging technologies to evaluate their usefulness and benefits. That is the purpose and motivation behind the Commissionâ€Ÿs purchase of gaming equipment.
Read the whole report, it’s really worthwhile. [via]

Thanks for the link. I was so impressed with the Commission’s response! The Effing Librarian had an interesting take too: http://effinglibrarian.blogspot.com/2009/02/nebraska-discovers-its-librarians-is.html
So are the Gaming Commission and the Library Commission going to get together? Better funding, I bet.
