Public Library Futures in a global digital world

By Jan Richards

Public Library Futures in a global digital world is the theme for the 2014 IFLA Public Libraries Satellite Conference.

Organised by the Public Libraries Section of IFLA, in collaboration with CILIP and the Society of Chief Librarians in England,  this satellite conference will be hosted by the new Library of Birmingham and provides an opportunity to discuss the latest developments in the public library world in the largest and most iconic public library in Europe.

The conference will focus on the themes of the library as a physical and a virtual space in the digital age and the public library as an economic driver that helps to regenerate and build communities.

Speakers will come from across the globe, including award winning US and European projects and our UK hosts sharing case studies of good practice in times of change. A call for papers will be made in the next few days and will be listed here and on the main 2014 Congress site.

We look forward to seeing you in Birmingham.
