The Past Present and Future of Libraries for Family History

I particularly enjoyed the final presentation I attended at the OGS Conference in Oakville, given by Marian Press. It was based on a talk she prepared for last year's BIFHSGO conference, at which time it was sponsored by the Friends of the Ottawa Public Library. She quickly skipped over the past, represented by the stereotypical bun lady.

All the web sites she referred to as examples of good library service are on Delicious here.

Some specific sites mentioned were:

Clare County (Ireland) Library

Flickr: The Commons

The Internet Archive (Texts)

Libweb - for finding public library web sites

Worldcat
