Kate Pullinger - Libraries in a Digital Age
Kate Pullinger writes novels, short stories, and digital fiction – works that combine text with image, sound, animation, video, music, and other media. Her most recent books include her collected short stories A Curious Dream, 2011, and the novel The Mistress of Nothing, which won Canada’s Governor General’s Literary Award for Fiction, 2009.
To explore the role of libraries in a digital age, Publit and Axiell has invited five internationally acclaimed experts to a two hour track. The first hour will focus on libraries as a place, elaborating on digitally enhanced buildings, hacker space's and community centres online. The second hour will offer an in-depth analysis of e-lending as a customised service, as opposed to handling physical products.
