Social media and the library.
Ran across two stories today about the influence of social media in library well-being (for lack of a better term):
Richard Russo, “Amazon’s Jungle Logic”.
Read on to see what these fellows think of Amazon’s tactics. Or, read Farhad Manjoo’s angry tirade against independent bookstores and why purchasing from Amazon is a way better thing to do. One thing to note though - in Manjoo’s article, he complains of the bookstore markup. Bookstores don’t decide the prices. Publishers do. Just wanted to make that clear at least.
