Libraries and Museums in an Era of Participatory Culture

Session 482

Accepting the notion of democratic access, placing a major emphasis on public value and impact, and embracing lifelong learning were key overarching messages that emerged from deliberations at the recent seminar Libraries and Museums in an Era of Participatory Culture which was convened by the Salzburg Global Seminar in collaboration with the Washington-based Institute of Museum and Library Services. The session plunged fifty-eight library, museum, and cultural heritage leaders from thirty-one countries around the world into discussion, debate, and the development of a series of practical recommendations for ensuring maximum access to and engagement in museums and libraries, as they examined the meaning of “participatory culture” writ large. The session findings are now available and can be accessed on line.

The Salzburg Global Seminar’s deep appreciation is owed to the Institute of Museum and Library Services for making Session 482: Libraries and Museums in an Era of Participatory Culture possible. Additional support was provided by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and The Nippon Foundation.

SGS and IMLS would also like to thank the session co-chairs, panelists, facilitators, and participants for donating their time and expertise.
