Libraries becoming community builders

Libraries becoming community builders | LibraryLinks LiensBiblio | Scoop.it

Vivian Howard, Dalhousie University associate professor in the school of information management, said libraries have undergone huge changes in the last 20 years. “The Internet has had a tremendous impact on the way libraries do business,” she said. “Libraries used to be a warehouse of information, where you physically had to go for material.” But Howard said libraries have had to rethink their role. “Linking people with information is still a vital part of what libraries do, but it’s no longer a warehouse of information,” she said. “It’s about providing access to information and a community setting.” Howard said libraries are positioning themselves as community builders.

Doug Mirams's curator insight, June 1, 7:43 AM

Libraries work to preserve the memories of their communities and support them during times of crisis, yet this is the first time I can recall where both these activities have come together.


"Bringing people their mementos back is an important, small thing we can do to help people get their lives back and these are irreplaceable. You can get a new bed or a new TV, but these kinds of things you don't have any more," said Susan Nenney, a Wimberley resident who brought in a pile of pictures she found near an area known as Little Arkansas.
