Michael Stephens was here

Michael Stephens is taking his seminar The Hyperlinked Library around Australia and yesterday presented to about 40 people at the State Library of Western Australia in Perth. His presentations have been blogged by many people, notably Michelle McLean and Kathryn Greenhill.

Among the many ideas suggested my Michael here are I few I have taken to heart:

  • Information should be seamless, not in silos.
  • Don’t try to replicate the physical library on a website.
  • Get rid of negative signs – be more welcoming and invite participation.
  • Say ‘yes’.
  • Take risks.
  • Technology is a cultural shift – not a new toy.

A few of us had dinner in Fremantle with Michael that evening – a most enjoyable get-together and discussion.
