Presented by

Professor David Baker, Dr Lucy Eliis, Dr Juan Mastromatteo,Caroline Williams, Melissa Fulkerson

About this talk

No-one is surprised that some of our most critical needs are met by remote delivery of goods and services. Digital transformation can be a mechanism for more efficiency. It can bring about new modes of practice, content creation and behaviour. Institutions can make their own decisions and can get back control. In short, everyone can be a pioneer. Librarians, publishers, scientific researchers and whole institutions are looking to learn more about how they can develop sustainable digital solutions beyond COVID-19 for the longer-term scenarios that are already emerging. New forms and use of materials all serve to eliminate the need for direct contact in physical space. Even physical environments will be predicated on evolving systems of digital information. Intensified financial pressure will also shape the future, with a reassessment of the commercial value of information and how cooperation and collaboration forms part of the new business model. Webinar participants will have an opportunity to hear from leading practitioners across the region and beyond, as well as sharing their own concerns and solutions to date. The discussions will build on this exchange by drawing on recent work by Professor David Baker and Dr. Lucy Ellis, addressing the future of digital information. Participants will also be updated on an opportunity to join an international benchmarking exercise to formulate best practices in a deep and considered way for all types of library and information services. Through the use of live polls, delegates will have ample opportunity to participate in the webinar discussions and shape the outcome.
