Preparing for a difficult situation

Gunilla Herdenberg is Head of the National Cooperation Department at the National Library of Sweden and the person who, together with National Librarian Gunnar Sahlin, will mainly work with the issue.
“We have not sat still and awaited the decision,” she says. “As soon as the Swedish Culture Bill arrived, we began preparing for a difficult situation.”
The work with the various phases of the action plan is therefore already in full progress:

  • What does it look like at the moment and what different types of library does it apply to?
  •  How can the National Library of Sweden use its experience of coordination within the academic world?
  • What extra resources and new competencies are required?
  • What should the power structure look like?
