Is it a bird? Is it a plane? What is a Library?

About this event

RLUK's Digital Shift Forum

The word ‘Library’ is rather like ‘School’: it a word which has been used over centuries to describe a variety of entities. The meaning is determined by who you are, and when you are using it – and the meaning before 2020 may well be different from the meaning in 2021.

What are the essential functions of a library? In the journey of knowledge, what is the difference between a library and a publisher? I would like to explore these meanings with librarians, since it seems to me that the Library of the Future depends on the Librarian of the Future.

Charlotte Roueché works on texts - inscribed or in manuscripts - from the Roman, late Antique and Byzantine periods. She is particularly interested in the interface between Digital Humanities and Classical and Byzantine studies, exploring how digital tools and digital publication can be used to break down barriers between disciplines, and between scholars across the world.
