Library Cuts Run Deeper Than They Appear

Why is it always the Libraries that Take it on the Chin? Because too many people have an outmoded concept of what libraries do. Many decision-makers also suffer from a disconnect to libraries because they don't use them. Hence in their self-centered world no one else does either. As a librarian, I am tired of being told, "Its all online anyway," as if I am an idiot and the Internet has passed me by. Neither is the case. I recognize and embrace the changes that have occurred in research in the past 30 years. However, I also recognize and embrace the value of information professionals, A.K.A. Librarians, who should be valued and made use of and not tossed out because they are a convenient target. Close the Texas State Law Library and other libraries at your peril! You will regret it later.
