    Hi Miriam, Bridget and Julia
    great blog! Thanks for referencing the ten trends here – always useful to see them being promulgated to promote thought, discussion and action 😉
    As you note, several of these trends are the same as last year – which is what one would expect with them being trends. Our focus now is on mapping how these trends are developing, so you’ll notice that what’s described within each is what changes – the examples, the impact and the nature of the trajectory etc.

    Thanks Derek, looking forward to seeing your mapping on the trends. Lots of this directly affects school libraries and our users both staff and students. As our role in school changes we want to be at the cutting edge, paying attention to changes, trends and options. Thanks for your comment. Cheers.
