Back in the year that I was born (you can do your own homework and math on that), David Bowie released his iconic single, Changes. A pensive look at dealing with life's little twists and turns, it offered some sound advice to anyone trying to deal with upheaval. "Turn and face the strange," Bowie wrote. In other words, he was telling us to confront change head on. Just over a year after his passing, I offer up this homage as an example to us all y. To say that changes are reshaping what we do is an understatement! Take a look at the highlights below. Are you ready to face the strange?

  • AI: It was not all that long ago that AI would have been considered stranger than fiction. Today, it dominates the media and our imaginations. It is very real and very present. Bob Ambrogi shares the latest surprise with us in: ROSS Artificial Intelligence Outperforms Westlaw and LexisNexis, Study Finds.

  • Libraries: As her company celebrates 30 years in business, LAC Group's Deb Schwarz takes a look back at how things have changed for our industry over that time. See her list at: 30 library and librarian changes in 30 years. [Ed. note: I work for LAC Group.]

  • Teaching: Ashley Ahlbrand remind us that teaching during times of upheaval can be difficult. She also notes that teaching can be used to help students adjust to the changes at hand. Do not miss her insights in: Teaching During Transition.
