Drive transformation in your library with these game-changing resources from APRC18

At the tenth annual Asia Pacific Regional Council (APRC) Conference, over 240 community leaders gathered in Bangkok to share ideas on how to transform not only our libraries, but our communities and institutions. Many of the tremendous insights shared during APRC18 are now available at the links below for you to view and share with colleagues. We hope that you find these resources as game-changing as we do and are inspired to use these learnings to chart a course for the future of your library.

What does it take to be a game-changer?

During our closing session, we asked APRC18 attendees to share the one word that they’d use to describe what being a game-changer means to them. We used these insights to create a visual word cloud, which is now available for download (and continued inspiration).
