Dean Cihak argues that the twenty-first century demands bold vision, creativity, and risk taking. To maximize a library's impact and resources, libraries must change the way they do business. There are a number of initiatives that law librarians can take to maximize the impact and resources of their libraries. In this article, Dean Cihak elaborates on the following suggestions: Utilize library collections and personnel effectively, collaborate with CLE and other law school entities, lead technological advances, and get on the law school agenda. He concludes that the future of law libraries can be bright if librarians will heed the need to change, learn to adapt, and use every means at their disposal to be wise stewards of their resources.
