Libraries today and tomorrow: a force for change in our transforming societies?
President’s Theme Session
14 August 2012 09:30 (- 12:45)

Society is rapidly being changed and transformed through many external
influences, such as access to and use of ICT, grass roots democracy movements,
multiculturalism and cultural integration, and economic challenges in the
distribution and use of wealth. This Session will discuss how changes
influencing societies today may impact on democratising digital access in
societies of tomorrow; and the role that libraries can have within that
transformation of society.
