Open Library Project
Atlantic Room | October 19, 10:15-11:00am
If you are interested in attracting new library users, providing consistent or expanded open hours, providing more flexibility for library staff and increasing the use of your library space, collection, and self-service resources – this session is for you!
The open library model has been successfully implemented in over 750 libraries of all types and sizes throughout Europe since 2004 and is now changing the way libraries in the US and Canada think about service delivery.
