Loving Patrons January 8, 2006

Must say, lovely to see Edward Vielmetti’s blog, “Superpatron” which ….. “is a weblog for library patrons who love their libraries, who take advantage of everything they have to offer, and are always on the lookout for great ideas that libraries around the world are doing.”

The ideas are a mixture the slightly techie (for me that is) – the extended use of RSS (his visual wall of books for a “What’s New” feature); highlighting services in his local library (AADL since you asked) – their art prints for loan service; commonsense collaborations for patrons -techie patrons working together for the library’s benefit and musing on how th elirbary could be better – findability within the physical space.

It’s just a great example of how to engage and energise our patrons and, as he says, a great rapid response forum for any ideas you have or opinions you are seeking on new or upcoming services.
