Cultural programmes and content production

Cultural programmes play a vital role in knowledge production for library users, their primary aim being to make the best use of the library’s holdings and bring them into dialogue with scientific and intellectual content from wider contemporary society. The exemplary, albeit temporary, nature of such programmes also makes them a major source of knowledge production. This aspect becomes all the more significant when libraries implement a policy for recording such cultural events online or in publications, in conjunction with an ambitious, structured events policy.
