Global Library Trends
Create an examination of progressive library services, trends or models outside of the US related to our course themes. What can we learn from these global initiatives? Your brief may be designed to introduce these international concepts to your library director or admin team.
Need inspiration? Take a look at the following selected links but feel free to select a topic not include here as well.
- Dokk1 in Aarhus (Perhaps synthesize the professional literature about this innovative library? What steps did they take to plan it?…)
- The Model Programme for Public Libraries (What is it? Who originated it? Who is using it? How can libraries use it?)
- IFLA Trends Report (What is it? How does it align with other trends reports and our course?)
- IFLA Global Vision (What is it? How does it align our course?)
- Learning 2.0 or Mobile 23 Things Style Programs (What is it? Where did it come from? What global impact has it had?) (And this from Ireland!)
