6th UNICA Scholarly Communication Seminar: Libraries As Drivers for Change, Brussels, 26-27 November 2012

Lars Bjørnshauge was a speaker at the 6th UNICA Scholarly Communication Seminar: Libraries As Drivers for Change, 26-27 November 2012. The conference addressed the issues related to the evolving role and place of the library in the university.

University teaching and learning practices as well as information technologies definitely shape the evolution of libraries regarding their services, spaces and contents. The seminar, furthermore, addressed visions of the university library from different points of view:  what is the academic leadership vision of the library? what is the ideal library seen by students?  which services are expected by researchers ? how are professors using library collections and spaces as learning support and teaching environment?
Based on these different visions, the seminar looked at how libraries design their services to meet the users’ changing needs, and how to reconcile the different visions.
