"Libraries can either serve as lifeboats or space shuttles on this grand journey - its our decision." Ron Starker

There are lots of analogies out there about the Transformations of libraries that I can relate to. This being one of them. As I make my way though Ron Starker's Transforming Libraries book one of the resounding terms mentioned is Remix. Kirby Ferguson explains that the remix factor is "To combine or edit existing materials to produce something new. For as long as humans have been creating, we have been copying, transforming, and combining."

Now is the time to "remix the concept of libraries."
