Interesting program yesterday on ABC Radio National Big Ideas on The Library of the Future.

“The library was once a temple of books. But much of what filled library shelves is now available online, without you having to leave your computer or mobile. What are libraries doing to ensure they don’t become extinct?   Well, it appears the library of the future will be a content creator, a publisher, and a conserver of‘unique’ stuff”.

Guest are: Eli Neiburger: Associate Director for IT & Production, Ann Arbor District Library; 
Joe Murphy: Librarian, technology trend analyst, Director of Library Futures at Innovative Interfaces;
Jane Cowell: Director of Regional Access and Public Libraries, State Library of Queensland;
Simon Groth: writer, editor, of fiction and non-fiction. Director of if:book Australia, exploring the future of the book;
