Libraries as Community

“Libraries as Community” Information Resource Center Directors (branch libraries in US Embassies) from East and Central Africa, U.S. Embassy, Kigali (via pre-recorded video).

Abstract: As professional services (medicine, higher education) move to a more participatory approach, so too should libraries. This presentation discusses how the mission of librarians pushes libraries past documents and spaces to conversations.
