The Future of Museums and Libraries: A Discussion Guide

The guide is based on a high-level exchange held last year at the
National Academy of Sciences in Washington, D.C. It poses discussion
questions on the impact of economic, social, political and
technological changes on community needs and provides examples of how
some museums and libraries are meeting them today – as a springboard
for further discussion.
