In this two-part session, Katherina Lee and Lee Kee Siang from the National Library Board (NLB) of Singapore will address changes that have led NLB to be considered a global leader in transformation.
In “Library Technology Adoption and Transformation Journey,” Lee Kee Siang will show how the NLB has emphasized leveraging technology to offer dynamic, innovative services, and how the significant opportunities provided by advances in technologies such as RFID, search engines, mobile, and social media apps enable the organisation to stay in the forefront of meeting customers’ needs.
In “Transformation of Libraries in Singapore,” Katherina Lee will discuss how establishing the National Library Board in 1995 marked a radical shift in organizational paradigms, moving from a reactive mode to anticipating future trends and innovating for excellence in providing library and information services.
