Old Fashioned Books in an Internet World

This is the quote of the day on my IGoogle home page:

The leader has to be practical and a realist, yet must talk the language of the visionary and the idealist. ~ Eric Hoffer

I believe I strive to be that type of leader.

As I was reading an article from my Google Reader news section:
Champion of reading - Winthrop's library dean crusades for old-fashioned books in an Internet world. JERI KRENTZ SPECIAL TO THE Charlotte OBSERVER. Sun, Mar. 30, 2008, I though once again of this quote.

A stirring article, that brought out mixed emotions as I read it - emotions from one end of the spectrum to the other - but an article for sure worth reading, contemplating, and keeping in mind so that we find and provide balance - especially in my dual role as manager of library services and instructional technology. We are lucky to be living in a time when we have so many options from which to choose. And I like that we can choose both, one one day and perhaps one another day. We can select what fits our being for that particular point in time. And we need to teach our students to think about and do that as well.

Thoughts, comments?

Please ignore my shelfari below - I can't seem to get rid of it in this post and am out of time. Gotta go plan our trip to Mexico with friends. Happy Spring Break!!
