Well...the update is that there is no update. We jumped in with enthusiasm and ideas, during a period of chaos and crisis, and find that organizations are organizing and doing the work that a few plucky volunteers could not. Jason and I have been talking about what to do with this site.
One idea is to use it to apply Michael McGrorty's endangered libraries idea. Maybe a clearinghouse of information for libraries in crisis--any sort of crisis. ALA chose not to officially support a resolution on endangered libraries, for several reasons. My thought is that this would be a source for libraries that wanted to identify themselves as endangered. Mind you, it's still all very much in the brainstorm stage. Since we have this space, we'd like to do something with it. Your ideas are appreciated. And, if shutting down is the best idea, we'll honor that. --rochelle
