The IFLA   STEAM into Sydney conference saw leaders from public libraries across

   Australia, Asia, Eastern and Western Europe and the Americas, celebrate

   the innovative ways that public libraries are supporting the STEAM

   (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) agenda. This

   attractive and richly illustrated publication contains brief case

   studies from around the world, and provides a useful overview of the

   scope of STEAM activities underway. Consider it a taster of projects,

   rather than a full course menu of discussions. It should be a very

   useful document to share outside of the library ecosystem, to use as an

   advocacy tool and to start discussions. Also included in this edition

   of Current Cites is a paper from this conference, by Daniel Flood,

   which highlights the rich depth of thinking and activity that no doubt

   lies beneath each and every case study highlighted here. – [27]WC
