Tom Peters has had to scale back his involvement in LibraryCity.org because he is snowed under with work-related matters. So his title on our site is now collaborator rather than coordinator. Tom wants to write for LibraryCity.org in the future within the limits of his schedule, and meanwhile he and I are looking for other contributors—especially librarians—who care about the nuts and bolts of issues like financing and literacy. And above all: the future of public libraries and how well-planned national digital library efforts could help rather than hurt. It was Tom who suggested we start up the group in the first place. Bravo to Tom for all he’s done at the expense of other activities—not to mention the courage he’s shown along the way. And if you’d like to help fill in the gap, just drop us a line. Update, May 23: I found and have fixed a typo in the mailto.
