Cindy Mediavilla from the California State Library, and a LILi Advisory Board member, attended the State Library's recent Think Tank on the future of reference. She reports on it in her blog, La Vida Biblioteca. Cindy mentions that one of the trends discussed was "eliminating boundaries." This is certainly relevant to LILi's mission, as we, in many different types of libraries, work together to try to achieve our goals. We will look forward to reading official reports on the Think Tank, as the California State Library develops "a new Statewide Reference model," that will also address information literacy. As this new model is developed, the State Library intends to offer opportunities to provide input at the California State Library Association (CLA) conference, November 14-17, San Jose, and through other means.
