reinventing the library in the digital age
An International Seminar by EUROLIS
Thursday 29th October, in South Kensington, London
What’s it about?
Digital libraries, e-books and emerging technologies are transforming the way culture, knowledge and information are created and disseminated. They have a fundamental impact on the self-conception and perception of libraries as spaces of cultural heritage, safe keepers of knowledge as well as stakeholders of knowledge management and information brokerage. How do libraries take action in order to bloom and ensure their future?
Presentation of experiments carried out by various public and academic libraries in Europe. The points of view of the entire book chain will be considered, from the librarian, the publisher, the author, the supplier, to the reader.
Seminar organisers: EUROLIS, a group of librarians and members of the cultural institutes of France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Portugal and Spain, and members of CILIP in London
