ELAG : Inside-Out Library

20131001_elag_tiger

This is a cartoon I created for the ELAG conference in Ghent. ELAG, short for European Library Automation Group, is the oldest conference in Europe on the use of computing in libraries. This year’s theme was “Inside Out Library“. The services of libraries are not only about material you find inside the library building. More and more library walls disappear: books and periodicals you read online, you search in Google, Web of Science or Pubmed. Libraries need to operate where their users are. Inside-out services are inverted , the library is everything you find out there.
