New report explores Public Libraries in a Digital Culture

New research by The Research Unit in Public Cultures at The University of Melbourne in association with State Library of Queensland investigates how public libraries are redefining their role in the face of a rapidly changing digital culture.

Key findings of Public Libraries in a Digital Culture include a strong demand for technological learning in libraries; the physical library environment contributing greatly to user participation and uptake of digital services; low levels of public awareness of the library’s non-traditional services and programs; and the library as a trusted ‘third place’. SLQ is currently considering recommendations of the report.
