How are libraries changing?

From ALA:

How do you use public (or otherwise) libraries?

The American Library Association (www.ala.org) motto of “The best reading, for the largest number, at the least cost” was adopted over 120 years ago, and perhaps it has never been more relevant.  Currently the ALA supports the following 4 primary dimensions for strategic library development:

  1. Physical To Virtual Libraries – Creating a balance between physical facilities with the increasing demand for digital materials

  2. Individual To Community Libraries – Accommodating the needs of individuals in concert with community engagement

  3. Collection To Creation Libraries – Transforming libraries into facilities for media creation, not just consumption

  4. Portal To Archive Libraries – Balancing the needs for physical and digital archives
