"Libraries as Read/Write Services", Recording of Gary Marchionini's Distinguished OCLC Seminar Series Presentation Now Online,
Now Available from OCLC Research:
Gary Marchionini, Dean and Cary C. Boshamer Professor in the School of Information and Library Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, spoke at OCLC on 21 February 2012.
In this presentation, Dean Marchionini talks about the blurring of boundaries between personal and public digital libraries as libraries begin to assume a larger role as institutional repositories for personal collections, such as family photographs. He also discusses the convergence of two trends that are driving foundational shifts in libraries of the 21st century:
- A strengthening focus by individual libraries on their unique collections, including local materials, and
- People increasingly working, playing, and living with the aid of electronic technologies that create traces of life’s behaviors through things like tweets or digital images.
A video recording of this presentation and the discussion that followed is now available as a streaming webcast. The slides are included in the webcast and are also available separately.
