Libraries of all types and the communities they serve are undergoing transformational changes. To successfully address these changes, library planners and community leaders need information resources and tools that will help them understand and address the trends reshaping libraries and their communities. 
The Center for the Future of Libraries helps libraries explore changes in our environment and productively plan for the future, including:  
  • Monitoring and contextualizing trends that will be of importance to libraries and librarians
  • Adapting futuring techniques to the library environment
  • Building connections between libraries and other stakeholders
The Center for the Future of Libraries is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
