Top Technology Trends for libraries  
Over on the LITA Blog, Sarah Houghton has some interesting things to say about her top technology trends. I really hope that at least some of the things she predicts come true (increased IM reference, increasing technology staff - without reducing other staff, automated tagging - without throwing out traditional controlled vocabularies, opening up library computers - removing security restrictions on what tools can be used, and picking and choosing the best of Library 2.0).

A later post on the same blog, by lpressley, summarises the top technology trends discussion at ALA Midwinter. Also worth a look.
