Innovation and Libraries

April 7, 2010

On Tuesday, April 6, Stephen Abram spoke on the topic of “Innovation and Libraries” to members of the Canadian Association of Special Libraries and Information Services (CASLIS), a division of the Canadian Library Association. Abram was listed by Library Journal as one of the top 50 people influencing the future of libraries, and he recently left SirsiDynix to join Gale as vice president of strategic partnerships and markets. On his blog, “Stephen’s Lighthouse,” he posted his presentation. He also has compiled all of his previous postings on the value of libraries. His post on the Value of Academic and College Libraries, highlights a study called “Libraries Designed for Learning” by Scott Bennett–keynote speaker at the CRD’s Spring program, “Information Commons in the Wild: Lessons from the Field” which will be held on June 15 at The University of Scranton. Abram calls this study, “… an articulate report on what needs to be considered to place the library at the heart of the new university – virtual and bricks.”
