An Infopeople Webinar

In order to succeed in the 21st century, library workers and leaders will need to embrace new ways of doing business and reaching our users. Doing this requires embarking on a comprehensive, dynamic, and ongoing process of reinvention, beginning with an intentional and imaginative effort to design, develop, and implement new ways to serve and connect with our users.


In this webinar, we will examine models for innovation used within the private sector and explore their relevance to libraries. Everyone has a role in charting the future for libraries and each of us has a responsibility for helping build a culture of creativity and innovation within our libraries.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, attendees will have:

  • Concrete ways to foster creative ideas and innovation within their libraries
  • Seen real-life examples of libraries building cultures of innovation
  • Plans to encourage creativity and innovation in their own libraries

This webinar will be of interest to all library staff interested in building or supporting within their libraries.
