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.
