Cloud computing is a powerful model for providing services, platforms and infrastructure to libraries.   Libraries (and librarians) are divided in the kind of clouds that are of interest in their individual circumstances. Systems librarians are interested in and have written about cloud computing from a systems point of view. Librarians providing more concrete patron services, including embedded librarians, reference librarians, technical services librarians, and information literacy librarians, will have different uses for cloud computing in their work. This poster makes the case for dividing the approach to describing the cloud into uses based on the desired end product.
