Library of the Future Debate

The Library of the Future debate organised by JISC and Oxford University Library Service took place on 2nd April. Video clips of sessions from the debate are available.

I have just watched the presentations by Chris Batt on public libraries and Sarah Thomas, Bodley's Librarian and Director of Oxford University Library Service. Chris makes the point that librarians should be more reflective and do more practical scenario planning. Both these presentations are a good starting point for this and the debate as a whole is a valuable masterclass on environmental scanning for librarians from all sectors.
