    Mike Eisenberg defines a library as (and I surely misquote) “A prediction of a future information need”. So, we have to predict it accurately, and we have to provide it within our business model (for free, and free of conflicted interest)

  2. You got me thinking on this one. I found the quote, which discusses the “library collection”.

    To me, a “collection” is “a prediction of future need.”; (Library Journal)

    I’ve been considering this idea and I don’t think I agree so much with it. Prediction is a very vague thing,
