An informal meeting of leading library and information industry participants devoted to thinking through and debating the new world order in collection development.   

What is the likely shape of the library of the Future? And how do we build collections for it?

The Fiesole Retreat is a series of important discussions about the future of libraries, publishing, collections, and scholarship. First begun in 1998, the series offers a unique opportunity to interact with a select group of your colleagues in a relaxed and thoughtful setting.

This year's theme is "Serving Learning and Scholarship". The 2018 Fiesole Retreat will once again examine new technologies and service models, as well as issues in collection development and librarianship. We will also look at the role of the Library as a laboratory of co-creation and creative solutions supporting learning.
