Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

In yesterday's blogpost on the selection of a new Director for the Jones Library, I took the opportunity to note an irony: Although the topic assigned for the candidate talks was the library in the age of the internet and new media, the Jones Library has generally been rather remiss in taking advantage of the rapidly evolving digital culture.

Its web presence has not been very up to date in either form or content—as evidenced by the fact that it didn't even announce the choice of a new Director.

In fact, the page for public comment on the candidates was still up—and even accepting submissions—last night.

Well, no more.

Do you think they saw the blog?

Here today, gone tomorrow—or rather: there yesterday, gone today. And, as Martha Stewart would say: it's a good thing.

Of course, the homepage and Facebook page are unchanged, but: one step at a time.
