To survive in the digital age and stay relevant, public libraries need to be.Libraries must offer more than just books.

To survive in the digital age and stay relevant, public libraries need to be brave and innovative. They must embrace both the physical and virtual. Regular visitors to libraries expect them to continue to provide the services they have provided for many years. And rightly so - the ‘traditional’ library of books, journals and quiet reading spaces shouldn’t just disappear. In lower-income countries, like Bangladesh, the context for libraries is different but some of the same challenges remain. Bangladesh itself is a small country with a huge population, estimated at around 162 million people.

Public and university libraries are at a crossroads, hard-pressed by competition from Internet search engines, declining budgets and changes in popular culture. Libraries must respond aggressively. Otherwise they will be marginalized by the impact of digital technology on their traditional customer base.Author Ralph Blanchard, drawing on twenty years of experience as an information services entrepreneur, argues that it is irresponsible for librarians to simply turn academic tasks over to search engines, as many do. Instead, libraries should expand digital services and, using the tactics and strategies of successful for-profit information service businesses, reconnect with their customers by promoting themselves as 21st Century information experts.Topics in this wide-ranging study include:The library as a service businessChange, risk and unintended consequencesThe Internet search engine business modelProblems with students using search enginesThe evolution of "ambient information"Music and information technology"Millennials" as library customersHiring and training library information workersPush and viral marketing strategies for librariesThe Digital Challenge for Libraries calls for new initiatives by librarians and for a rekindling of interest in the vital role libraries play in an informed, prosperous and democratic society.
