Library of the Future Debate


What is the library of the future? This public question and answer debate discussed what information and library provision mean in these changing times; technology has had a huge effect on the behaviour of both information consumers and service providers. We asked what the library currently is and what do libraries need to do to support knowledge, innovation and society for the future?

These issues were examined from several different perspectives through a range of high profile speakers1 who presented their vision for the library of the future. Programme for the Debate

Martin Wood Lecture Theatre, Oxford University, Oxford, April 2nd, 2009.
