I have a guest post up at In the Library with the Lead Pipe, on the concepts of resilience and sustainability for libraries.
If you don’t know Lead Pipe, it’s a terrific blog edited by a great group of folks. The posts are substantial and peer-reviewed, and always thought-provoking. It’s definitely a good blog to put on your RSS feed (if it’s not already there.)
Many thanks to Eric Frierson for soliciting the post, and to Eric, Kim Leeder, and Nicholas Schiller for their review and edits.

I just read the post, and thought it was fantastic! The comparisons were eye-opening, and I had never thought about libraries this way before. I’m going to look over the rest of that project now.
