What trends are provoking new thinking about the 21st century library? Do 20th century visions and skills still matter? What is the library role in the building the national/global digital library? How are we essential to the communities we serve? How are libraries responding to special needs and opportunities for service? How can we be more oriented toward strategic thinking and action and toward solutions? What is the political advocacy and social justice role of the library? What are the implications for staff expertise? How do we advance from the kumbaya of library cooperation to more radical collaboration?
