Future of Libraries

Public libraries are important technology access points that serve community information and communication needs. They are valued social spaces where people search the internet, prepare a resume, and connect with loved ones. TASCHA’s public library research examines the role of these institutions in people’s lives and informs the development of new services, programs, technologies, and policies. What role do libraries play in social and economic development? How will the pervasiveness of mobile phones and the emergence of new technologies affect how libraries serve communities? What will the library of the future look like in resource constrained settings?
