Bringing Order out of Chaos- Weinberger insists that "we have to get rid of the idea that there's a best way of organizing the world." The role of libraries and librarians are being challenged by the new ‘digital disorder’. Do you think libraries have had their day in gatekeeping information resources and knowledge in favour of devolved control? Do you see an even greater need for information management expertise in a world of increasing information competition and multichannel distribution?

Come along on Thursday 28th August from 6.30-8.30pm to meet Digi May, the library’s Open Life avatar and explore the issues involved in developing, managing and delivering library services in Second Life. This is your chance to influence the shape of your library services in a 3D dimension.
