[Expect More]
Lankes, R. David. Expect More: Demanding Better Libraries for Today's Complex World. [R. David Lankes], 2012. ISBN: 9781477476352

This short book addresses the issue of what libraries need to do to thrive in their communities. He makes the case for libraries as the center for learning about privacy, intellectual property, and economic development. It is not just about books and literature anymore, and communities should be expecting more from their libraries.

The author also hosts a blog, and has a short video explaining his purpose for the book: http://rilandpub.wordpress.com/
