Author(s):Arahova, Antonia
Subject(s):library mission, best practices in libraries, library collaboration, information skills, sustainable development
Abstract:The paper will focus on Library Services’ mission in providing state-of-the-art information, communication and IT services for research and knowledge sharing for the enforcement of the libraries’ social vision. The paper attempts to identify strategic issues for libraries wishing to pursue a more active policy with regard to the changes affecting librarian system due to the increased use of information and communication technologies. Libraries can play a critical role in political reconfiguration of their nation by building the types of skills and competencies that will empower individuals and thereby contribute to shaping an information culture that meets the needs of the time. We can identify two major areas in which libraries can develop strategies to enhance services for their patrons. Following domains are discussed: collaborative design and the relation between physical and virtual learning environments. Next, possible implications for library staff regarding the changes are discussed.
