Workshop: Libraries in the Knowledge Landscape
Chris Batt, OBE
Chair and moderator:
What would you like to discuss or do in this workshop?
PURPOSE: To consider the wider context of the public library in a rapidly changing landscape of knowledge institutions and social behaviours. Where should the library fit into the emerging knowledge value chain? Who will be the other key agents in that value chain? What is the knowledge value chain anyway?
APPROACH: Short presentation of factors, questions and challenges followed by a discussion
ANTICIPATED OUTCOME: Perhaps six action points that focus on the external relationships that libraries will need to build in the future
