Description

Keynote.

The motto for Code for America is "a new kind of public service". The motto of CrisisCommons is "we help connect people to help those in need". This talk is not going to dwell on the matter that librarians lack a good word much less an official motto that describes the work that we do. Instead, a case will be made for a new program to be designed to get more librarians working within more organizations in more communities.
