Brian Mathews, who blogs as the Ubiquitous Librarian for the Chronicle of Higher Education and who is also Associate Dean for Learning & Outreach at Virginia Tech has a must read new white paper entitled “Think Like a Start-Up: a White Paper”. I think it is well worth reading the whole paper (and it is wonderfully illustrated as well) and so I don’t want to sum it up or quote directly as I highly recommend you read it. But the advice about asking big questions was something I found I could apply to my work, my husband’s business and INALJ :)
Brian is working on putting together a free webinar about a recent trip to silicon valley and will talk about lessons learned that can be applied to libraries. Hopefully the talk will be in late May so watch his blog, The Ubiquitous Librarian, for more details.
