Vision 2017

.

The library is a place full of new ideas. By sharing information, knowledge and stories, we are creating a new civil society together.


IFLA Trend Report The IFLA Trend Report provides detailed options for libraries across the world to position themselves internationally within this environment, and advise them of the projected social, cultural, economic and legal consequences of these options. The report will offer a useful resource for librarians, policy makers and the public to help all stakeholders better understand the role of libraries in a digital age. http://trends.ifla.org

Transfer of the ownership


• In an organisation learning takes place on several levels: the individual level, the group level and the organisational level. • Exchanging information and sharing ideas and experiences needs to be encouraged. • The staff should also be given the opportunity to be creative, to learn from mistakes, to take risks and to reach new levels of expertise


Most of the changes cause the need for life long learning to the individuals and to an organization. It means: • • • • •

- the need to reprocess knowledge and skills all the time - the need to understand the essentials of the profession carried - to learn to work in different ways - the need of multi-professionalism - the need of a good leadership and supervision
