Keynote speech by John Pateman

Author and librarian

Public Libraries & Social Justice
Libraries must be relevant to the needs of local communities which are becoming more diverse and multicultural. John Pateman will build on ground breaking research in the UK (Open to All? Public Libraries & Social Exclusion) and cutting edge good practice in Canada (the Working Together project), to outline the practical steps which are required to develop needs-based and community-led library services.

He will also explore some of the challenges and barriers to creating socially inclusive libraries and how these can be overcome. He will provide a blue print and a road map for producing strategies, structures, systems and cultures which enable local communities to be fully involved and engaged in the planning, design, delivery and evaluation of their library services.
