ALIA has produced a series of reports entitled Future of the Library and Information Science Profession.
The project aimed to answer the following questions:
- How will libraries remain relevant for users?
- What changes will institutions and individuals in the sector experience?
- Will ‘library and information professional’ continue to be a necessary and desirable occupation?
I say series, because there seven reports:
Future of the LIS Profession: Professionals Report
If you haven’t read the one for your sector at least, you need to. They are a very interesting insight into where ALIA and its members and partners see libraries going. I have read the public library report and plan to do so again. I will also be taking a sneak peak at the other reports, because there is always value in cross-sectoral sharing.
Happy future viewing.
