Librarians describe innovations in libraries focusing more on people--either staff or patrons--than on technology. They cover innovation in terms of culture, staff, outreach, technology, spaces, and programs. Among their topics are the library's role in promoting tolerance and diversity in a university, the Virginia Tech experience in building a toolkit to craft an instruction program, seizing the opportunity for innovation and service improvement, a digital media lab in an academic library, and stepping into the story with children and young people.

Case studies in strategies (from Zen "beginner's mind" and trend-watching teams), ideas and especially in programs, with ideas for all types of libraries. Each study (many in conversational first person) takes an idea from germination, through research into community needs and other libraries' experiences, to implementation and even with thoughts about evaluation.
