President of the (American) Council on Library and Information Resources Dr Charles Henry is digitally re-envisioning libraries so they cross boarders, becoming global. 

He's working with teams preserving collections that could be lost to conflict or climate change, and using digital technology and spectral analysis is revealing aspects of our cultural heritage that would otherwise be hidden by time. 

Charles is in New Zealand celebrating the centenary of Wellington's Alexander Turnbull Library taking part in a series of events, including his lecture at the National Library called "All Things Made New: Media, Research, Libraries, and the Idea of Culture".
