NCompass Live: The Innovation in Libraries Awesome Foundation Chapter - Online 


Transformative innovation is often driven by small scale projects and experiments. The Innovation in Libraries Awesome Foundation Chapter was created to support the prototyping of library innovations that embody the principles of diversity, inclusivity, creativity, and risk-taking. Since its founding, the chapter has supported projects from around the world that reflect the potential of citizen and library driven collaborations to address community issues and innovations. This session will discuss how the chapter was formed, the projects that have been funded, and the future direction of the Innovation in Libraries Chapter.
