Turning Public Libraries into Collaborative Spaces: The Role of Multimodal Imaginaries

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

Abstrakt

Drawing on a study of Danish public libraries, we examine the transformation of the institution of the public library from a knowledge space for information access and learning to a collaborative space for civil creativity and innovation. We identify three imaginaries that enabled this transformation: city, community, and creation. Each imaginary conveyed meaning multimodally, that is, through verbal, visual, and material modes of communication. We propose that multimodal imaginaries are effective for transforming pre-existing spaces, even institutionalized ones, into collaborative spaces.
