Seventeenth Round Table on Free Access to Information - An Innovative Library in the Local Community Service  (published: 26.10.2017)

Topic: Seventeenth Round Table on Free Access to Information is entitled as an Innovative Library in the Local Community Service. Although a library is often imagined as a place with books and computers, today's libraries are much more. They are often meaningful, and sometimes the only cultural centers in the city or the locality. They are places of special concern for the local cultural heritage, as well as places that can help local start ups. New technology, primarily internet and mobile telephony, enabled libraries to get out of their frames and to provide what was so far impossible for the residents of remote, rural and isolated communities. Library today operates in two fields: in its own space that strives to be as attractive and convenient as possible for different types of events, as well as organizing services outside its space for the users who are disabled to visit library and use its services in a standard way. Librarians must know local opportunities and needs, keep up with the development of new technologies they can count on, and also be creative to design new services. A central subject is divided into three sections: Library Cooperation with Institutions and Organisations in the Community, Community Interest Group Connecting, and Innovative Community Services.
Purpose: This Round Table is dedicated to new services, organized independently or in cooperation with other organisations and institutions in the local community, or services that helped gather certain population groups for common (cultural, bisiness, etc.) interest. Their purpose is to recognize and evaluate libraries as places where members of the local community can gather, converse, hear discourses, attend a music event or see an exibition.
