TK Forum 2015 “Library Futures : Challenges and Trends”

In the technological age where knowledge-seeking and learning behavior has changed, we can access an enormous amount of information from the internet. So, can public learning venues like libraries retain their role and cater to the thirst for knowledge among the new generation? Will these repositories of treasured tomes and the wisdom of the ages still be important to society? What will libraries look like in the future if they cannot adapt to change? What role can they play?

 

TK park cordially invites you to come along and listen, think and analyze the role of libraries and follow changes and adaptations of libraries as expounded by world-class thinkers who will address a range of topics on the theme of “Library Futures : Challenges and Trends” at the TK Forum 2015.
