Like many young people, Aaron Schmidt loves electronic gadgets. But not for their own sake. He believes the future of libraries depends on how well we meet the needs of today's young adults, who are far more tech-fluent than most librarians. As reference librarian and all-around technology guru at Thomas Ford Memorial Library, Schmidt created the library's web site using Movable Type, a publishing platform familiar to anyone who reads or publishes blogs. This article summarizes the accomplishments of Aaron Schmidt, a librarian at Thomas Ford Memorial Library in Illinois.
