SCONUL vision

Lorcan

SCONUL, the UK Society of College, National and University Libraries, has a vision for libraries in 2010 posted on its website. It is a short document.

Library and information services will move from a ‘one-size-fits all’ approach to the personalisation of the delivery and support of space, services and content provision. For example, library buildings will be designed with very different user needs in mind, providing discrete areas for social learning, research-based learning, group activity, etc. [SCONUL vision 2010]
