Danish Study: Digital Library Strategies - Nordic library meeting in Copenhagen


Published on

Lotte H Dhyrbye, Head of The Danish Think Tank – Libraries of the Future

In the Nordic library organizations we believe that international cooperation can create a better world. That's one of the reasons why we meet, once a year, with all the other Nordic countries, discussing how we can strengthen cooperation between libraries for the benefit of people and society. (And I don't mention Trump at all)

This year we meet in Copenhagen and have a series of presentations and discussions, which you can see more about here
