"I've noticed that libraries generally rely much more on one another than on other industries for ideas. And sometimes people in libraries get uncomfortable when you suggest solutions that come from non-library vendors. Strangely, I've even found some libraries reluctant to try approaches that haven't been proven by libraries in their state – forget about outside of library land! However, I've found some of the best ideas have come from libraries that have stepped outside of the library marketplace and created strategic partnerships with non-library suppliers."
