  2. While this may be true, no actual user population was consulted or tested in the design of this model. What is the point of designing a model that has such a significant impact on our profession, if we don’t consult actual library users in the design process? Without testing the model and gaining feedback/insight from actual library users, we are essentially designing a model by professional navel gazing.
