Barbara Quint's wit and writing send me everytime! I was so happy to be on the panel with her at IL (even though she was just on a speaker phone, she captured the room with her words!)

Looking forward, Quint theorizes that digital libraries (huge digital libraries..) will allow 24/7 access to huge amounts opf easily published materials. How do librarians fit in? "The trick for the future of the profession," she writes, " lies in finding new tasks that need doing, new ways to do them, and ways to convince clients everywhere that they need us."
