Abstract

Although libraries have claimed redefinition, it mostly applies to how patrons access information. There should be more focus on the other ways that libraries are changing. The definition of a library has not changed, and many people still separate traditional library services from non-traditional library services. It is all the library, and we should focus on serving our patrons' needs and let libraries define themselves.
