This introduction was given by Steve Brewer. The event continued the series of workshops on the theme of Libraries of the Future with a focus on community engagement. We were very pleased to welcome participants to the Sir Duncan Rice Library at the University of Aberdeen. This new library describes itself as a 21st century space for learning and research having been opened less than two years ago. We welcome all those with an interest in the theme of Libraries of the Future and especially those concerned with outreach and community activities and related knwoledge management.
