Why don’t we have temples of data and information built in Ottawa? What does our city need from a library? Are we doing enough to make sure that a diverse range of Ottawans have access to the information and data they need to compete in our new knowledge economy?

We’ve assembled a panel of some of the city’s librarian-philosophers to chat about what they see as the library of the future and how they see their profession evolving for the digital age:

  • Leslie Weir, University Librarian at the University of Ottawa and former executive with the Canadian Association of Research Libraries.
  • Jennifer Stirling, Division Manager for System-Wide Services & Innovation at the Ottawa Public Library
  • Mary Cavanagh, Assistant Professor in Information Studies at the University of Ottawa

The live discussion is taking place at the Shopify Lounge  from 7-8 pm, but you can catch the key points being shared on twitter. Join the discussion or ask a questions by using #apttalks.
