Library Dialogue 2021: Managing libraries in the new normal

This year, we are kicking off the Library Dialogue targeted at the Asia-Pacific academic librarians following the success of the Virtual Summit last year. Participants can expect to hear from thought leaders on key topics and network with like-minded peers through this event.

Key Highlights:

  • Future of Work in Libraries.
  • A look back: How have libraries adapted/evolved in the past two years? What were the opportunities and challenges that libraries are facing?
  • Current situation of libraries: Perspectives of how different libraries navigate unchartered waters.
  • Looking ahead: What will libraries look like in the next two years? Has the pandemic changed users’ behaviour drastically? What will be the next library technology trend? How will the use of library space change?

Note: This event will be conducted in English. It is open to all academic library professionals in the region, including Wiley's existing customers and partners.

Keynote: The New Normal for Academic Libraries

Keynote: The New Normal for Academic Libraries

Dr. Libby Sander, Assistant Professor, Organisational Behaviour, Bond University; Founder and Director, The Future of Work project and Rethink

A recent poll that we conducted with APAC librarians suggested that 49% of the respondents had a change in their job roles and responsibilities due to the pandemic, largely due to the closure of physical libraries and a surge in demand for online library services.

Operations have been modified with essential services in place and librarians also have to cope with working from home. That got us thinking, what would the future of workplace in libraries look like in the next two to five years?

With Dr. Sander's expertise in The Future of Work project, she will be sharing her knowledge and insights on how academic libraries could transform.
