Very cool project coming out of Massachusetts this morning: Mass Moments. Not a new idea, just ‘today in history’ but stylishly presented and with a forum for discussion.
I just had a quick argument with my new hubby (also a librarian) who says that money is so tight that organizations are too busy with their ‘core tasks’ to bother with window-dressing like this. I suggest that this type of project raises their profile in the eyes of constituents and exposes their value so that, perhaps, those folks would support them a bit more. Sort of, let people see what you do and they might value it. Move your cheese and make this one of those ‘core tasks.’
Any thoughts? Anyone want to take sides?
