We've talked about IT from time to time, and your post helps me put one of my unformed thoughts into words:

Why shouldn't librarians treat IT as vendors?

To put it less starkly: Why not learn enough IT to be able to (1) make your needs clear to IT people, (2) know what is currently possible, and (3) smell bull-whacky?

Just 1 through 3 is a lot to ask of understaffed librarians, so why go further and do the hard, unrewarding work of building relationships?
