Program for Joint Session: Knowledge management with Academic and Research Libraries

Session theme: Agile management: strategies for achieving success in rapidly changing times We will explore the ways that libraries around the globe have displayed ‘agile’ approaches to respond to a range of challenges. The current challenges we intend to examine include the restructuring of education, alternative models of scholarly communication, the growth of private/for-profit institutions, the onset of new modes of delivery, knowledge management and content management, the expansion of online learning and the rise of MOOCs (massive open online courses), new spaces and new roles. We will give special focus to best practice in the Asia Pacific region.

Session time: Monday 19 August, 2013. 09.30-12.45
