The Autumn 2016 issue of BDSLife for Libraries travels to the United States to investigate two major library conferences: IFLA and ALA. While across The Pond, Lesley Whyte visited Columbus Municipal Library, a recently renovated and regenerated Carnegie Library. We also cover the UK conference scene from CILIP to CIG, NAG and Dewey. Our in-depth interview explores the future of the public library with one for the industry’s most respected figures, Mick Fortune and we also report on a host of new initiatives from BDS that encompass new categories and formats, software development for data processing and our engagement with the Da Vinci Decathlon.
