Libraries as Convener, Enabler, Distributor, Advocate, and Archive in the Future Knowledge Economy

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

By 2026, there will be no information and services industry targeting products to the library marketplace. Content and applications will be directed to the consumer. Open resources for learning, research and recreation, and open source tools supporting innovation, and individual and organizational productivity, will be more prevalant in the global economy. Self-publishing and niche technology development will dominate. Information policy wars will dictate national and global legal and legislative debates. Libraries will be effectively integrated into the new creative environments.
