Read this issue of SirsiDynix Upstream and explore the ideas and opinions on this topic from 10 leading library experts. Whether you’re a small public library, k – 12, consortia, or academic institution you will be engaged. The spring issue of Upstream is now available for free download. Upstream is an invaluable facet of the SirsiDynix Institute, posing thought-provoking questions in each issue regarding important issues in librarianship. It offers unexpected ideas and uncensored opinions aimed at provoking thought, generating discussion, and fueling creative approaches to contemporary industry topics. Like the SirsiDynix Institute Web Seminar Series, you won’t want to miss reading this issue in which we posed this question:
“What is the best example of libraries building communities that you have come across or experienced? How will libraries in the future be empowered to play even a greater role in their communities?”
