CLIR Programs – Leadership – Activities – Public Library Case Studies
Public Library Case Studies
CLIR is interested in addressing the challenges public libraries face in an era of information revolution and the implications of these challenges for the education of the library profession. With a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, it has established a program to take a closer look at public libraries and determine the most useful avenues for developing leaders, building networks within the library and information science communities, and strengthening the dialog among the people who use and support public libraries.
Within this Kellogg program, CLIR has gathered information on public libraries that have developed particularly innovative services, that use emerging technologies to serve the local community, or that have been influential in addressing public policy for information services in their communities. In the long term, CLIR plans to use the information gathered to guide the development of programs that will enhance library leadership.
Supported by a grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.
