Are libraries “book warehouses” or “knowledge maker- spaces”? The nature of “things” patrons create with library tools has changed in recent years. However, this increasing complexity of tools has not changed the library’s central role of providing the space for information consumption, the training in support of various literacies, and support of knowledge creation in whatever form the researcher requires. The only thing that has really changed is the nature of the tools libraries support. Are we providing a broader array of tools needed to support multiple-media learning and literacy that enhance our rel- evancy to constituents—and to funding agencies? Join the discussion!
