2 July 2012 marked the 500th edition of The Daily News. Much has changed since the first edition on 21 January 2011 and this is the second in a series of brief posts to mark the occasion. The first post is here.
The last 18 months was not just a period of significant change where mobile devices, apps, library funding woes and ebooks fundamentally altered the way libraries do things that need to be done.
It was also a period of significant DISRUPTION. Where individuals decided enough was enough and all bets were off, and David picked up his slingshot.
My top 3 David vs Goliath stories from the Daily News are:
- More news on the Koha trademark. (28 Nov 2011)
- Douglas County Libraries Erects Legal Framework for Ebook Purchases. (20 Jan 2012)
- The open access debate. (10 May 2012)
