Library of the Future: Center for the Future of Libraries

The Center has identified Trends relevant to Libraries and librarianship. Trends are organized into seven categories – Society, Technology, Education, the Environment, Politics (and Government), Economics, and Demographics

This collection is available to help libraries and librarians understand how trends are developing and why they matter. Each trend is updated as new reports and articles are made available.

The Center also produces the Library of the Future Blog:  a weekly wrap-up of news and articles to help library professionals think about the future of our collections, spaces, services, partners, and roles in the community. The blog roll can be accessed at:
