Arnie Maurins ’77 was recently interviewed by NewsReview.com about the role of the library in a high-tech world. Maurins became director of the Washoe County Library System in 2008. He said, "There’s some limitations on what we can do as far as what the county does with technology. They’re generally one or two releases behind the latest software and that kind of thing, but I think within those limitations … we’re doing pretty well. Staff is starting to use mobile devices like tablets out in the stacks, helping people. And we’re going to start lending out those kinds of things to the public for them to use and maybe having a bar setup in the library where they can use those kinds of things and try out the latest stuff."
