The futures group has produced a document detailing a vision of the public library service in 2015. It's worth reading, though I didn't agree with much of what was said. I think the idea that librarians should wear uniforms is going to raise eyebrows! I was also interested to note that 'internet' is mentioned once. There is also an assumption (from the quick read that I gave it) that books will still be around in the same way in 15 years that they are now. While that may be the case, I didn't see much discussion on that point. The point was also made (quite rightly) that in 10 years time we're going to be dealing with technologies we don't even know about yet!
