Library and Information Week
By Sam Vanderweff, Information Services
This week is Library and Information Week in Australia. The library at Somerset is a vital hub for College activities where we are constantly trying to strike the balance between providing a dynamic space for collaboration without eschewing our reputation as a refuge and a space for independent study. We identify not so much with the historic beacons of the past, but as an essential provider of free books, information, ideas and education. With ever increasing web resources, evolving formats and consumption trends that lean toward visualization, video and virtual reality our mandate is to deliver progressive practices that prioritise agility whilst keeping an eye on the emerging technologies heading our way.
