Librarians have been using this “new” media for 15 years. No surprise when they were the last bastion of relevant information during a recent constitutional rights dustup in America. Library listservs are like a Twitter email stream. And they do get going at an incredible pace with statewide and national networks. Information exchange on a massive scale. Archived and searchable.
I think librarians grasped the “new” media potential early. In other words, Librarians totally rock. Without librarians, where would the literati get their litterae?
