  • KEYNOTE: THE DARK MATTER OF THE INTERNET

    by Michael Peter Edson

    The dark matter of the internet is open, social, peer-to-peer, and read-write – and it’s the future of libraries. Michael edson argues that history is defined by periods in which we thought we had a pretty good idea of what was going on, punctuated by brief moments when we realised we really didn’t have a clue. We’re going through one of those moments now, and it’s all wrapped up with the internet and scale. Like dark matter, the internet has a force, a mass, and a capability that is often unseen or undetected. for today’s organisations, success comes down to how well we harness the dark matter of the internet and the opportunities it presents.

  • A101 - Tomorrow's world today - trends in library service

    by Sharon Bostick, Liz McGettigan and marydee

    Library transformations – exploring the change environment in libraries

    What are the major drivers of change in library services? International library leaders set the scene and explore the forces driving libraries’ rapid innovation and multifunctional potential. Today’s savvy librarians need to focus on the full digital and physical experiences customers have when they make a (real or virtual) library visit – so they can quickly find information, make decisions, or participate – creating positive experiences that visitors not only remember but want to share with others.

  • A104 - Global inspiration, local action

    by Jan Holmquist

    Jan Holmquist, Guldborgsund Public Library

    The modern library supports learning on all levels. All typs of library, in many different countries, face the same challenges, driven in many cases by tecnological developments or financial contraints. Despite having the same core issues, libraries come up with different answers, shaped by their differing cultures. By being globally inspired – and translating that inspiration into local action – libraries can transform their communities.

    Museums are rich in both artefacts and original research content, and library and archives are a major source and influencer in getting this content into the digital universe. Limited resources (money, staff time and skills, equipment, space) make it imperative to collaborate and cooperate within and across institutions. Richard Hulser explores the potential of these multi-institutional collaborations.
