Affordable Lifelong Learning

Meredith Farkas has a great post over on TechEssenceContinuous Learning: Making it a Priority Without Breaking the Bank:

Our field is changing at an almost bewildering speed. Libraries all over the world are coming up with new technologies, new ways to adapt technologies for libraries, and new ways to provide services to patrons every day. The knowledge we came out of library school with is not enough to keep up with changing technologies and changing patron populations. We have to continue to learn, to grow, to expand our views of libraries and technologies. Learning should happen every day, every week, and every year that we are on the job. And it should be encouraged by administrators as an integral part of our work.

Emphasis added by me.

You know I agree with her – if you agree – an even if you don’t you should give her post a read.
