I really enjoyed your reflection Tracey as I thought you summed up the current trends in RA very well. I particularly liked the description of next generation catalogues – is there anywhere that user-generated content cannot go if it can be included in a library’s otherwise sacred catalogue??? Laurel Tarulli’s blog was very interesting in that regard. Otherwise, RA seems to me to be one of those important areas where users can engage with library staff, develop their reading tastes and collaborate over building a preferences base. Building trust with another person can be an inspiring and enriching experience and it seems to me that RA is ideally placed to provide this kind of positive experience. And surely that’s a win-win situation.
