Conference Session 93

Plenary Session: IFLA Trend Report

19 August 2013 08:30 - 09:15 | Room: Exhibition Hall 404-405 | SI

In December 2011 the IFLA Governing Board set up a Steering Committee to commission a major Trend Report modelling the evolving digital information environment. The IFLA Trend Report will provide detailed options for libraries across the world to position themselves internationally within this environment, and advise them of the projected social, cultural, economic and legal consequences of these options.

The report will offer a useful resource for librarians, policy makers and the public to help all stakeholders better understand the role of libraries in a digital age.

This session will give a complete overview of the Trend Report and the Online Trend Report platform will be lauched just prior to the session.
