Libraries are continuously at the forefront of change, adapting and evolving to meet the needs of their communities. From January to March 2023, staff from more than 1,600 libraries from around the world shared their experiences via survey around library spaces, programming, collections, and staff development—and how they envision change in the future.

Join Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Executive Director, OCLC Research, and library leaders from OCLC’s Global Council as they share and discuss results from the 2023 global survey on “Redefining the library experience.” Gain additional insights on how improving the library experience can create more meaningful engagement and bring impactful change to our communities.

This session will include active discussion and opportunities for all attendees to participate. Speakers include:

  • Lynn Silipigni Connaway, Executive Director, OCLC Research, United States
  • Sandra Gisela Martín, Directora, Sistema de Bibliotecas, Catholic University of Córdoba, Argentina
  • Anne Cooper Moore, Dean, J. Murrey Atkins Library, University of North Carolina at Charlotte, United States
  • Evi Tramantza, Director of Libraries and Archives, Anatolia College, Greece
  • Lance Werner, Executive Director, Kent District Library, United States

This webinar is the second in a two-part series of discussions hosted by the OCLC Global Council to create awareness and foster dialogue among library leaders on the ever-evolving library experience. It is part of OCLC’s Transformative Leaders series.
