1. Inherent in the digital book is the promise of change, and I want that promise realized. I no longer expect a blanket model from all publishers and accept the messiness this brings.

    I trust my readers, and want them to help choose what titles we should license. Patron-driven acquisitions has received its share of attention in the academic world; it’s time to experiment with popular literature.I want to serve my community. I want publishers to thrive. And I want libraries to flourish.

    I want a New Year.
