Meeting Challenges of the future: from Reflection to Action – Library and Archives


Meeting Challenges of the future: from Reflection to Action – Library and Archives
 Daniel J. Caron

Whether it is a question of defining how and what to acquire, properly preserving for durability or, very immediately, responding to the demands of new users in the digital world, we must work in the context of a changing society. Skills, work processes and a fresh perspective on the future are the keys to Library and Archives success.
