Long Live Superpatron!

I've talked about Edward Vielmetti here before, but I never had the right name for him. Now I do. He's Superpatron!

"Superpatron 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. It's not a library blog in some traditional sense - I'm not a librarian myself. It's some expression of what various Friends of the Library groups do on a local level, except that it's on the net." [Superpatron]

Edward's got some really interesting things planned for this site, so I heartily suggest you subscribe to the RSS feed. If nothing else, it's a chance to hear about online library services from a patron's point of view. Granted, he's pretty technologically advanced, but I think there are more of him than we realize, and he's an enhanced version of where a goodly portion of our patrons may be in five years, especially the younger ones.

I'm also happy to announce that Edward will be the presenter at the next MLS Tech Summit this spring. We haven't finalized a date yet, but I'll announce it as soon as we do. You won't want to miss hearing what he has to say about libraries in person!
