At the beginning of our Special Libraries class our instructor informed us that Special Libraries were more than likely to be the most cutting edge. After a few weeks of visiting various special libraries, I find that this couldn’t be more true.

Almost all the libraries we have visited have found ways to creatively utilize technology to best serve their parent organization or the library’s community. Whether it was the HOK Library using blogs and networking applications to help their members communicate, the St. Louis College of Pharmacy Library ordering electronic versions of curriculum to save students money, or the Covenant Seminary Library loaning out free USB flash drives to their patrons I have been very impressed by the use of technology to help improve the services they offer.

As someone who is interested in applying library philosophy to new technologies, Special Libraries are very interesting.
