Research library of the future ...

At last month's ShareFair session on future agricultural libraries, FAO's Johannes Keizer shared 5 directions for libraries:
  • Disseminate the Global Public Goods of your institution!
  • Catalyze and facilitate knowledge exchange!
  • Help to create integrated information and knowledge management platforms!
  • Deliver targeted expert services!
  • Change your skill sets!
He further elaborates these notions in his background note for a meeting discussing the "Global Research Library 2020."

Really good points by Johannes Keizer. My view is Agricultural Libraries should be raised to international standards. I think an online version of the future Agricultural Library must be made available in the internet in different international languages so that it would reach the entire global people.
