DeAnza III (Portola)
Ken Roberts, Consultant, Ken Roberts Library Consulting & Former Chief Librarian, Hamilton Public Library

In 2013, The Royal Society of Canada established an Expert Panel on the Future of Libraries and Archives. Composed of eight Canadians, two Europeans, and one American, the panel’s final report is being released this fall. Hear from a panel member about their exhaustive process with hundreds of submissions and open hearings across the country. Roberts shares the key messages and recommendations that are applicable to libraries and archives anywhere. The panel hopes its report unites the stratified, silo-oriented world of librarianship and archives around a renewed understanding of our role and importance to a strong and productive citizenry.
