YELLOWKNIFE (April 20, 2009) – In line with the 16th Assembly’s vision of ‘Northerners Working Together’, the Department of Education, Culture and Employment (ECE) has increased direct funding to libraries for the 2009-2010 financial year. The Assembly has identified “healthy, educated people” as one of the six goals of this vision.
The funding increase supports a new vision for the public library system, which is focused on building seamless access to information and services through Alberta’s public library network.
“This is an investment in Albertans,” said Premier Ed Stelmach. “We want to help libraries provide seamless access to books, resources and people for the benefit of all Albertans no matter where they live, work or read.”
"The intent of this study is to understand the impact on library staff and institutional culture and makeup after a Learning 2.0 program", Dr Stephens says.
"The critical questions for libraries looking forward are to what extent has Learning 2.0 impacted institutional culture and staff confidence, and to what degree has it improved the ability of library staff to use emerging technologies?"
Dr Stephens notes that "More than 500 libraries in 15 countries have implemented Learning 2.0 programs in 2 years but we know very little about their effectiveness."
Editorial Introduction - Issue 6
The intelligent use of technology in libraries continues to be one of our most crucial challenges. For those of us who became librarians because we loved to explore the book stacks, we are now finding new ways to explore both old and new content in digital form. With issue 6 of the Code4Lib Journal we hope you will find new ways to explore, experiment, and bring to your library users what they want and need.

Times are tough. Library funding is down, library use is up, and people are asking more and more questions demanding more and more time from their public library staff. In response to these increasing demands on library resources, Library Development staff at the Washington State Library have been compiling resources and trying to find ways to help their libraries cope in Washington State.
The result: resource pages for library users and library staff.
