Survey to library workers about their community-building work in libraries.
Chrystie R. Hill and Steven M. Cohen say:
We’re writing a book about libraries and community building, and using this blog to support that work. Between now and March of next year, we’ll be researching, interviewing, and scouring the library world for insights into how library staff can (and do) community building work. We’ll use the blog to sort out some of our own thoughts and ideas, and engage our colleagues in that process with us. The book - tentatively titled “Inside, Outside, and Online…” (we’re still working on the sub-title) is due for publication in the Fall of 2007.
