Today more than ever, library technology must be leading-edge technology.

How Mark Rubbo Killed Borders Books

"Knowing that Borders relied on discounts and impersonal transactions, Rubbo devised a battle plan. He invested in a new fitout for the Lygon Street store, not that anyone knew: it lifted efficiency and sales but felt like it had always been there. He spent more time and money delivering great service, in-person and online; he created and staged local literary and author events every week; he stocked hard to find titles; sold books that dealt with political and social issues; and created an interactive website. He invested in cultural capital and left naked capitalism to Borders. Rubbo adopted an anti-supermarket, anti-corporate approach. It was easy for him. It’s what he’d always done. Business for Mark Rubbo is personal. He loves wonderful books and loves the people who sell and read them."
