Adjusting for an era of events and digital media

Abstract

The media landscape is changing faster than ever. It may seem like Non-fiction books no longer are the main source of information for patrons, it is starting to become a supplement to the Internet, and novels are not interesting to the large part of the population after about three years. Tonsberg and Notteroy public library has transformed the library collection from a massive stock to an attractive, up to date collection, meeting the patrons need. One of the most important tools for this transition has been the use of statistics and indicators. A dedicated web site now presents updated info about collection management policies, indicators and development goals.
