Over the past few months I’ve been working with Michael Stephens to compile all 29 of our “The Transparent Library” columns from Library Journal into an e-book. In addition to the columns we wrote between 2007 and 2009 we added several essays and the transcript of a Google Hangout we had last month where we revisited the many changes that have transpired since 2009.
It was a fun endeavor and this new e-book is now available for free, either as a MOBI file or as PDF. We hope you’ll find it encouraging and useful.
The Transparent Library MOBI file for Kindle
From the book description: The “Transparent Library” gathers 29 columns from Michael Casey and Michael Stephens. Originally published in Library Journal from 2007 – 2009, the column explored concepts related to transparency, management, engaging communities, social media, strategic planning and constant change. The e-book includes supplemental essays and columns, and includes a new conversation “The Transparent Library Revisited.”
