I was interested in their adaptation of my colleague Robin Murray’s synthesise/specialise/mobilise framework to frame the discussion. In his note, Koen remarked that “Bruges Public library considers the horizontal discovery of local resources (heritage collections, community information, courses and events, local advisory data…) to be a very important starting point for redeveloping our library into a local knowledge hub and to enhance participation of the local community”.
