New Publication: Public Libraries as Social Innovation Catalysts
OCTOBER 29, 2013
van den Assem (2013), Public Libraries as Social Innovation Catalysts.

We discuss the implications of this approach for expanding the role of public libraries from providing access to collections to becoming social innovation and community catalysts.
