English abstract

The Wider Information and Library Issues Project (WILIP) has now reported and is being followed-up. Many of the recommended actions will be implemented via the next, strategic stage –“Routes to Knowledge”- which seeks to re-position libraries in the Knowledge Society and develop capacity so their potential can be realised. Routes to Knowledge will engage with the library and information world to produce an Action Plan by March 2005. Actions will fall under headings such as user need, strategic framework, advocacy, network development, access, funding, workforce, information literacy and knowledge management. The relevance of these activities to research (and vice-versa) is discussed.
