The National Library is in the midst of an extensive renewal process, the most ambitious in its history. The process is underway is several main domains: digitization of the collections, expansion of services to researchers, other users, and new user groups, website development and translation of the site into other languages and – still to come – a move to new premises in the National Precinct. The primary motivation for the renewal process is a commitment to making the Library's collections accessible to as broad a population as possible, and affirming the Library's status as a national institution.
We invite you to explore the renewal process personally by means of a tour designed especially for library professionals. The tour will cover the Library's past, present, and future, including a visit to the digitization department, viewing of items from special collections, and an introduction to the Library's new public service facilities.
Target Audience: Librarians, Studentes, Researchers
Duration: 1.5 hours
