Much more than Books: Reimagining the Library to Provide a 21st Century User Experience.

Libraries are facing a crisis of identity and function due to rapidly developing technology and changing social expectations of how to access information. With digital mediums becoming increasingly popular with today’s modern user, libraries are struggling to keep up.

Thus, this challenges the notion of what a library should be in the 21st century and how they can be transformed to remain as a popular place of learning in this modern age.

Ahead of the Next Generation Libraries summit 2018, we chat with Daniel Flood, Creative Manager with The Edge at the State Library of Queensland and explore how he reimagined the traditional library into a space that provides exceptional experiences for modern users through technology and innovation. 

In this article for Next Generation Libraries 2018, Daniel Flood, Creative Manager with The Edge at the State Library of Queensland discusses:

  • The processes towards investing in a next generation library
  • How to know which new technologies to acquire
  • How next generation libraries benefit the community
