IT’S NOT A LIBRARY; IT’S A LIBRARY LEARNING COMMONS - Petruce Jean-Charles, Kutower

“I think some people tend to believe that the President Dawood Farahi doesn’t want any physical books at all and it’s not true,” Croft said. “When people ask what can be done about the books President Farahi always responds with, ‘We’ll buy another one.’ …why would we throw out a costly collection? Why wouldn’t we just look at our collection and take out the lesser relevant collections?” Besides print books, Croft spoke of Dr. Farahi’s movement to get away from textbooks to help students save money through open educational resources online.“There are ways to get the instructional materials to students — sometimes physical, sometimes electronic. We can do both,” Croft said. http://kutower.com/2018/11/20/not-library-library-learning-commons/
