This book available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Libraries and Identity summarizes the role of institutional identity in the emergence of new types of libraries such as joint use libraries and digital libraries. The title focuses on the change from the traditional library types such as public and academic libraries to these new forms of libraries. Professional and institutional identity issues have arisen due to this change and development of libraries. Author Joacim Hansson first sets up a framework for the identity and purpose of traditional libraries. In the new digital age he talks about the consequences of libraries and society going digital. He goes over the discourse and practices of libraries and focuses on aspects of library development that have not yet been explored.
