How can libraries, archives and documentation centres help create a shared sense of community in a world where the individual is confronted with an increasingly uniform global culture? How do they enable local communities to benefit from the opportunities to grow and succeed which are offered by the information society? This presentation draws on experience from the UK and from the presenter’s own local authority, Derbyshire, to suggest some lessons for the future.
