In the spirit of the academic librarian 2.0

Writing about web page http://liblogs.albany.edu/library20/2006/11/a_librarians_20_manifesto.html

I would like to think we at the RIU are in this spirit. Do you share Laura’s vision of what academic librarians’ attitude should be? And is there anything else you would include in her Librarian’s 2.0 Manifesto ?

There seems to be an implication that librarians should avoid being over-cautious, or perfectionists, and that they should be more willing to make mistakes. I suppose she means to take risks and manage those risks.

The universal truth that any trainee librarian soon learns is that one cannot keep everybody happy all the time. To please one impatient user by imperfectly releasing a resource, often cannot be done without causing mayhem and disadvantaging other users.
