Introduction

Hi, I’m Ryan Livergood.  Welcome to my new blog!  I decided to start this blog as a way to connect and collaborate with other librarians across the country and ultimately discuss how we can work together to lead our libraries into the 21st century and beyond.  Like many of you, I have some concerns about the field of librarianship.  What are some of these concerns?  I am concerned that there are not enough librarians stepping up as leaders in our field.  I am concerned about the people we serve, about our communities, about providing the best possible customer service possible.  I am concerned that too many libraries across the country are losing the battle to keep libraries as an essential community service.  I am concerned that many libraries are behind the curve in embracing technology, more specifically, mobile technology.  I am concerned about the lack of Common Sense Librarianship.

This is a blog by a librarian for librarians, but hopefully it will appeal to anyone interested in leadership and mobile technology as well.  I am looking forward to connecting with you all!
