D304: Library & Digital Transformation

Track C: (Jefferson) —  Management: Decision Making – Wednesday 25 October 
14:30 – 15:15

Inspired by Patrick Losinsky of Columbus Metropolitan Library, David Lankes, and an analysis of major societal trends, a wholly new strategy for Copenhagen Libraries was undertaken. A large sum from the city to implement the new strategy, led to major changes in service, physical space and competence development programs. Now, the libraries are working on a digital overhaul and reconceptualisation at a time when the status of e-lending itself is being hotly debated in Europe following a bold ruling by the European Court of Justice. Hear about their decision making process and get insights and ideas from our speaker!
