Libraries of the Future


Well JISC’s first proper campaign is off the blocks – Libraries of the Future was launched at the JISC Conference and was swiftly followed up with a special supplement appearing on the Guardian. As part of the deal the Guardian provide a dedicated micro-site with the supplement available in a web version although this was slightly strangely called Libraries Unleashed… any how it had some pretty good stuff in it and received plaudits from many.

Naturally the JISC web site has the inevitable web pages that bring together recent activity as well as planned events and activities for the future. The Libraries of the Future blog has a post that sweeps up some of the initial posts from the blogosphere

A dedicated social networking site has also been created using Ning. Although there is little to see here so far it will be used as the focus for future events and endeavor to be the focus for online debate as the campaign develops
