The New Model Library
Library leaders had to make immediate changes because of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on their workflows and community offerings. Some of these changes will impact the library going forward. The OCLC Research team met with global library leaders to discuss emerging library models. This session reflected on their long-term vision for libraries as a result of changing practices and environments.
The speakers were joined by a group of panelists, who are also EMEA Executive Committee members: Stuart Hunt, University of Reading; Beate Meinck, Reutlingen Public Library; and Evi Tramantza, Anatolia College.
