The Survival Of Libraries Lies In Positive Promotion

Posted at 3:30PM Monday 17 Mar 2014

The way we market and promote our national library service is one of the areas that drastically needs to change if we are to give libraries any sort of long-term future. But it's not the only area that needs improvement. William Sieghart's review into e-lending in public libraries flagged up the need to find a clear way forward with ebooks, so I guess we're all waiting to see how the OverDrive ebooks pilot pans out. We really do need to find a way forward. Our lack of agility with regards to technology is a real handicap and I'm looking forward to reading the findings of the latest libraries review.
