Boston College, Burns LibraryARL executive director Elliott Shore has embarked on a "listening tour" of ARL member libraries. This is the second in a series of informal reports from his visits.
I continue to visit ARL member libraries to meet and talk with staff and directors. During the first week of February, I had the pleasure of visiting the five ARL libraries that are located in the Boston area: Boston College, Boston Public, Boston University, Harvard, and MIT. I was able to spend at least half a day at each institution, meeting with all five directors as well as AULs at each library.
