Working in a large institution has led me to discover a few things.
– things are constantly shifting and changing under the guise of being a dynamic and evolving knowledge space. Yet really it is a clever ploy to eliminate accountability and transparency. Too many shifting guards to pass blame between.
– the saying “nobody knows what they are doing” is true. It’s a large city with thousands of municipalities. There are pipelines and procedures but too many laneways to get lost in.
– leadership is found in the library not in departments.
– critical minds lead to critical evaluation, which leads to dissent and disruption.
