Access Services 2020 : Envisioning the Future of Access Services
MetadataShow full item record
The library community of the present is completely obsessed with the future. This isn't surprising; it's clear that society and technology are changing together in ways that will transform libraries dramatically over the course of the next 10 years. In this presentation, Chelle will provide an overview of numerous articles, books, and reports about the future of libraries that have been published in the past two to three years. She will then draw connections between the vision of the future presented in those publications and our work in Access Services. How might our roles and services change over the next several years? How will we be impacted as the needs of our users change? How might we adapt to the transforming and evolving societal contexts we, and our libraries, will be situated within as the 21st Century unfolds?
