TWEETS FOR LIBRARIES THRIVING

libsthriving Don't apologize to an author for taking their book from a library. That's what they're there for. Use your library. Neil Gaimon paraphrased

On vacation recently I read Craig Child's Finder's Keepers.  In it he described how removing archaeological artifacts from their discovery site reduced their value—mainly because displacement eliminates the context in which the artifact was created and used.  Archaeologists and museums might be able to protect the artifact by removing it but they are not able to re-create this context.  Are librarians and libraries facing this same problem? We often talk about providing the user their information 'in context'.  What does this mean?  What are the best practices in this area?
