Description

ALIA National 2014 Conference, 15-19 September 2014 Melbourne : together we are stronger

This conference presentation explores how libraries have always been about literacy and learning but as public libraries are transforming themselves in the digital age they are exploring their role in literacy and learning in new and innovative ways.  Libraries are and have always been about content – ideas, information and stories. Traditionally the vehicle for this content has been the book. We are now providing a range of vehicles in which our content is presented and providing services and programs that create societies of literate and lifelong learning individuals through a range of sources and formats.  This presentation looks at Libraries ACT and its work in managing content in its broadest context and access to it in new and more flexible ways.
