Libraries and Information Seeking

Libraries are key to improving access to information and knowledge for everyone.

The rapid development and increasing reliance on IT, the internet and digital information makes it essential for traditional information services to revise and evolve their systems to offer users the best access to current knowledge and information.

EfC has worked with libraries, educational institutions and international agencies in the UK, Europe and less developed countries to evaluate and improve understanding of and access to effective information services.




EfC's core work in this area focuses on:

  • strategic planning and change management
  • resource discovery in the networked environment
  • information needs of users in research, education and lifelong learning
