Learning from Inspiring Libraries
Copyright (c) 2011 Information Today, Inc.
Abstract: Libraries in different parts of the world carry out their work in all sorts of creative and interesting ways. While libraries worldwide hold some common traits such as creating, managing, and providing access to collections, each region of the world brings its distinct challenges and opportunities. How each makes use of technology, designs its physical facilities, or shapes its services informs us of new possibilities. Breeding shares the valuable and inspiring lessons he has had the opportunity to observe in his travels and helps to expand our thinking on what libraries are able to accomplish — often with very sparse resources. His photo essay gives a virtual visit in pictures while his stories entertain and inspire.
