The Future of Libraries:  Blockchain Reaction – Library 2.0 Use Cases 

December 8, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Future of Libraries:  Blockchain Reaction – Library 2.0 Use Cases 

Blockchain technology has the disruptive potential for  libraries to accomplish much more than house electronic  credentials. The implementation of blockchain will have a  broad impact within the global information profession and  for all types of library users. Self-sovereign Identity (SSI)  paired with a blockchain protocol for libraries to support  digital inclusion and digital literacy, rare book provenance,  digital rights, copyright protection, Interlibrary Loan,  metadata access, and community-based collections, some of  the possible applications being considered by information  professionals, will be highlighted in this session.
