All About the Shanachies

The other CIL Conference post I wanted to point you to was about a keynote that Nancy already mentioned here. But we just can't say enough about these Dutch guys from DOK, the Library Concept Center in Delft, Holland. The trio is Erik Boekesteijn (L), Jaap van de Geer, and Geert van den Boogaard (R).

Here's the most important overall point: You've gotta get familar with these guys and what they're doing, because they just might change the library world.

See my post about their CIL keynote from earlier this week.

Read the excellent article about their library's many innovations, just published in Marketing Library Services.

Share the many stories about their 2007 road trip, the Shanachietour, where they visited libraries across the U.S. to learn about best practices.

Enjoy their Flickr pics from libraries across the country.

And stay tuned for a book / documentary that's in the works...

If these don't inspire you to be more innovative at work, nothing will!
