Libraries of the Future

 

In Mary Auckland’s cybertour, she described the UK project of JISC that offers printed resources, events, podcasts, videoclips (including a debate on ebooks), and social networking. JISC works with the media to get coverage about libraries into the press (she showed a page from The Guardian) and provides information about designing spaces for effective learning. Just announced was that JISC will work with RLUK, Research Libraries UK, and with SCONUL, Society of College, National & University Libraries, on a 2-year horizon scan that will provide strategic leadership in higher education.
