Thoughts

Participation and cultivating community
The nature of distribution is changing - get songs from library CDs downloaded to your iPod
Access anywhere, anytime - no physical visits, no open hours
RSS for notification services
Instant help - IM
Using web2.0 stuff: wikis, blogs, tags, flickr, delicious
Recommender systems for content suggestions
Commercial integration - purchase if you do not wish to wait
