Rethinking libraries: Innovation in a time of limited resources

A session at JISC Conference 2011

Tuesday 15th March, 2011

3:00pm to 4:00pm

The opportunities and drivers have never been stronger for libraries to re-conceive the value they provide to the research and teaching communities they support, and to re-model the ways in which they deliver that value more efficiently. However, such opportunities are often accompanied by uncertainties, with a paucity of information and support for those attempting to plan for and envision that future.

This session will explore questions such as: What does an efficient library look like in the future and what technology does it use to function most effectively, both economically and in terms of its service-oriented goals.

This practical, solutions-based session will explore the key themes of

  • Planning for an innovative future,
  • Tools and tactics to support the appraisal of digital assets
  • Shared approaches to services and infrastructure
