The Library Evolution 2014
AGENDA
In this digital era, the culture of reading and how libraries are utilised is rapidly changing. A library professional has to

budget?
This forum is for library directors, information services managers and research managers and will provide an interactive
environment to discuss, problem-solve, and network with colleagues. It features a mix of high-level presentations, expert
panels and facilitated discussions with many networking and peer engagement opportunities.
