About the talk: The time to “redefine, re-imagine, repurpose and reinvigorate” libraries and the practice of librarianship is now! The global development context has positioned libraries and librarians most favourably as development partners as articulated within the IFLA Lyons and Cape Town Declarations. What are the implications hereof for us as South African librarians and to what extent are we ready to take up this opportunity to actively locate ourselves beyond the walls of our libraries?
