ELAG 2014: Lingering gold, 10-13 June - University of Bath

ELAG 2014 will be hosted by the University of Bath (

'Now we are changing our focus and will all become inside-out libraries, we have to work on what we have inside. We have to find the 'lingering gold' in our communities. Dig for it, refine and polish it and make it attractive and useful for others. '

We will be elaborating on last year's theme 'the Inside-out library', which was about the changes libraries are making when shifting focus from concentrating on the outside world to concentrating on what is special in our local community, and expose this to the outside world. We have to work on what we have within our libraries: what makes them distinctive, special and unique. Think local, act global.
