Library time bomb - CPX

1,312

Published on

Information has exploded. As a result libraries globally are facing huge challenges around staffing, funding, relevance, and technology. Some are struggling, some are thriving. The State Library of Victoria (SLV) is doing its best to stay current and engaging, fostering new connections and opportunities to grow audiences and learning potential. Collaboration and partnerships are integral to building new learning streams, and coupled with the use of technology, this Library is set to explode into new methods of engagement with the community. By applying some design-thinking processes in re-imagining the way information, knowledge, and communities intersect through libraries. Stepping through activities which frame current library assumptions against future library expectations (and possibilities), we’ll then pit these against the programs and tools already created in onsite and online environments.
