Opening Keynote for the 6th Annual Top End Symposium: exploring library spaces for learning and e-learning, Charles Darwin University Darwin, Northern Territory Australia, 3 October 2009.
The summary from the program is below. I more or less stayed on track, but after I found out that I was the first speaker, I wanted to ask a few questions that could be unpicked during the rest of the confrerence. It focused more on how libraries can support serendipitous learning and whether we should - and let me show photos from some of the best fun libraries I have visited in the last couple of years.
What skills do library staff need to evaluate whether innovations spaces are suitable for their users? How can they plan and implement these nimbly? In this keynote, Kathryn Greenhill reviews the physical spaces created in some of the most innovative libraries in Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the Netherlands. She examines some of the tools and opportunities for creating new online spaces. She suggests two ingredients that are essential if we are going to create our libraries as effective learning spaces.
