On the third day of the workshop on Public Libraries in the City the participants defined some main topics that could be the core of future common research projects.
In a next step we discussed three of these topics (or cluster of topics) in smaller groups. The goal was to define the topics and to sketch research questions.
- Livable cities, libraries and the creation of place/space
We will work now in these groups in order to formulate the concept and to define research questions for each discipline. A more detailed description will follow on the website.
