Libraries and Open Ecosystems

peter.suber's bookmarks 2022-01-26

Summary:

"Libraries play an important role in their community ecosystem by providing crucial resources and services. As patron needs grow and change, libraries adapt to meet those needs. While much of this work happens at a local level, when libraries work together we can achieve global impact.

Through this year’s focus on “Libraries and Open Ecosystems,” OCLC Global Council, together with OCLC Research, will explore the broader impact of the library in its local ecosystem, in other words, the library’s symbiotic relationship with the social, educational, informational, and environmental infrastructure of the community where it is located.

Through a three-part webinar series, Global Council and OCLC Research will partner to bring together thought leaders from around the world to explore how libraries can and do contribute to open ecosystems. Bringing impactful change to the communities we serve."
