NEW MODEL FOR COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

2:10 | Books and Beyond: Challenging Traditional Forms of Community Engagement and Planning in Public Libraries

Melbourne Library Service is a capital city public library service embarking on a research and practice-based community engagement project to develop a five-year strategic plan to 2021. The project is collaborative between the library service and the community it will be serving in the projected five years. New modes of engagement are being employed to capture the voices and needs of diverse user groups and to include these community needs in the library strategy. Community-led workshops, video creation and non-traditional data collection methods will be employed to ensure MLS is responding to the changing role of public libraries in Australia and around the world. This project will consider wide-ranging international and domestic community engagement practices, aimed at aligning MLS strategic planning with global best practice; and evaluate MLS community engagement activities to produce a model/methods for other library services to follow in their own community engagement.
