Dear all

 

I have read the developing debate on the above with interest. I think, 

and please correct me if I am wrong Maria, that we both received this 

document from the MLA which gave the impression that this was their 

vision for our future 20 years hence. As such it needed to be 

addressed immediately as to whether the rest of the profession had 

seen this vision and agreed with it and also to provide an immediate counter blast to it.

 

That having been achieved I quite agree that we must now enter into 

constructive debate on how the wide range of issues should be 

addressed. I am sure that our librarian colleagues would also wish to 

enter into that debate given their specialisms and different modes of 

working. I am glad to see from Justin that these are not set in stone 

and are just possible options to be debated. I also welcome 

Elizabeth's information on the Caring for Our Collections Report and 

the opportunities to be afforded to comment on this, in addition to the NCA's response.

 

I was glad to see from the most recent edition of Arc that the there 

has been a round table conference of most of the professional bodies 

within our sector to discuss providing the profession with a stronger 

more unified voice. These are the sort of developments which we need 

to have if we are to provide a very strong creditable contribution to 

the debate on our future.

 

I was appalled to read of Alan Davies experience at Wigan and was very concerned not to see any mention of Alan having received professional 

support from any of the bodies who could have provided it. I can only 

hope that he did receive it but it was behind the scenes.

 

My main concern remains is how we convey to the policy makers our 

fundamental underlying role and contribution to both our employers and 

the national heritage whilst accepting that the new technologies, 

methods of working and externally developed national policies such as 

social inclusion can be absorbed into our working lives. Further more, 

as in all the professions, the very diversity of who we work for and 

functions we perform for those employers, means that not all these 

issues will be relevant to everyone.

 

So a final thought. How do we have this debate and ensure that as many 

as possible can participate and contribute to it. I don't have the 

answer but I am not currently aware of one forum where we could all 

contribute views, debate those views and the issues, and come up with 

a consensus which can then be taken forward to be debated with MLA.



As always a very personal view point. 

 

Cheers

 

Nigel
