Thank you participants in Aveiro and online for your feedback and positivity. I was honored to be part of your wonderful conference.
Public libraries are about providing access to information for all citizens. They are also about giving the community members the best possibilities to transform that information into knowledge.
When we look at libraries not only as a place for cultural inspiration or a house full of information -but also as the learning hub in the community, we focus on different ways of connecting with the community and new ways of delivering library services. We also have a new approach to what skillset librarians need to make this happen.
In this talk, I focus on practical examples from my work as a library director in Denmark and New Zealand. Examples of working with learning as a strategy and how that impacted the library services delivered and how libraries reached out to the community.
I am proud to be Co-Chair of this years Internet Librarian International conference and I am looking very much forward to the conference. I am very satisfied with this years program. Besides very interesting keynotes and great speakers – the conference offers a good vibe and lots of network opportunities with inspiring librarians from all over the world – I hope to meet you there.
I am moderating a number of very interesting sessions on demonstrating value, dynamic disruption, how to use video to engage and the proactive library.
