Good article, from the recent issue of Ariadne, summarizing the evolution of library services in the digital age. What I appreciate most of all, I think, is the understanding in this article that library services need to become dynamic and integrated into the flow of a person's online experience, "supporting the remix of content and services in user environments, and developing digital curation services." There is an enormous need for intelligent information flows - consider this newsletter, for example, which serves just such a purpose. But the point is not so much (as it unfortunately states in the article) to "compete for eyeballs" - this is the route to irrelevance - but to, if you will, simply be in the right place at the right time.
